Witch Fever share new single “In Birth”

Witch Fever have shared new single “In Birth“, the latest single from their debut EP Reincarnate, set to be released on October 29th. The new track follows on from previously released “Reincarnate” and “In The Resurrect“.

Witch Fever continue to intoxicate on the new single through chugging sabbath-worthy riffs and propelling drums. They address the torment of patriarchal structures and the predatory behaviour that is born out of them with an eye to the wind. “You praised me / Undressed me / Telling me I was your wet dream” remarks singer Amy on the chorus, before declaring that she’ll “Eat you alive / Tear your bones head to toe just to see what’s inside”. They’re here to tear the establishment down and they’re doing it in explosive style.

Speaking on the new single singer Amy Walpole:

“‘In Birth’ has been kicking around for a little while now, so it’s nice to finally exorcise it into the world. Whilst the theme of a lot of our songs is reclamation, empowerment and catharsis, it’s definitely far more vulnerable. It felt right to juxtapose this with big chuggy riffs and noisy, cymbal heavy drums. The power that Alisha, Alex and Annabelle create on this track accompanies the anger in my lyrics perfectly.”

She continues, “We created and directed the video with Sam O’Leary and it’s a tongue in cheek way of presenting the narrative. We wanted something camp and fun, but still powerful and angry. Plus, everything’s better with a bucket of fake blood!”

Manchester’s Witch Fever have today announced their debut EP Reincarnate, set to be released on October 15th and on 12″ vinyl on December 3rd. Pre-order here. The announcement comes alongside the release of new single “In The Resurrect” which will appear on the EP. This follows on from previous single “Reincarnate“.

Speaking about the EP singer Amy said:

“This is the first time we’ll be releasing something longer than a single so it’s very exciting for us! The EP doesn’t really have a singular meaning behind it, it’s a mix of what our favourite songs to date were! Some of them we wrote and finished during the lockdown and some are a few years old. The overall lyrical content is a cross between biblical and horror imagery as a way to explore empowerment, catharsis and anger. It’s about owning my sexuality, my body and channelling my anger through music. With every piece of music we write we want to break the boundaries of a typical ‘Witch Fever’ song and push ourselves as musicians to keep evolving and getting out of our comfort zones! The more brutal the better!”

They have also announced that they will be supporting the political grime meets punk duo Bob Vylan on their UK Tour at the end of this month through to August, and are still set to play Wave Before The Kick In The Chest in Leeds, and Burn It Down in Devon. Tickets available here.
