About All Them Witches
Versatile hard rock quartet, All Them Witches, thrive on contrast. Now six records deep into a tenure that began in 2012, Ben McLeod (guitarist,) Charles Michael Parks, Jr. (bass/vocals,) Robby Staebler (drums,) and Allan Van Cleave (keys) are unremittingly forward-looking. There is a ferocious energy and rhythmic nuance to the band that delivers devastating guitar riffs in a raw blend of progressive, bluesy, neo-psychedelic rock.
The band has relentlessly toured since inception, performing at festivals including Voodoo Music & Arts, Bonnaroo, Forecastle Festival, and Pukkelpop; while also sharing tours with acts such as Mastodon, Ghost, and Primus.
All Them Witches’ most recent record was recorded in Abbey Road and released September 4, 2020 on New West Records. They continue to hone their unique meld of crafted songwriting and spacious grooves on the road with 30+ date tour this winter with plays at Shakey Knees Festival and a sold-out Halloween show at Ryman Auditorium in their hometown, Nashville. All Them Witches have deep musical roots and grow a heavy, visceral sound, with sheer dexterity delivered in every song.
About The Swell Fellas
Hailing from their hometown of Ocean City, Maryland, they honed their craft at beer drenched bars and college parties. The Swell Fellas took lessons from their early days of covering heavy classics and improvising extensive jams, and formed a dark, refreshing sound that will have you riding a wave of intense meditation into soaring musical crescendos. Fresh off of the release of their debut full length, The Big Grand Entrance in January, three song EP The Great Play of Extension in April, single Death Race in August 2020, and now heading back into the studio in October for LP number two. There’s no signs of slowing down.
This power trio is made up of a pair of brothers, Conner and Chris Poole (guitar and drums respectively) with their longtime friend, Mark Rohrer, a rock guitarist who they begged to buy bass gear. Growing out of their homemade backyard studio in MD, the band is pushed forward by Rohrer’s brand of melodic bass playing, wailing lead guitar with dynamic instrumental effects, and an underscore of wonderfully technical drumming. And so, these three old friends have distilled their personal chemistry into something greater than the sum of its parts. With larger than life lyrics inspired by the ebbs and flows of their personal lives, the band remains surprisingly grounded for a group who are so prone to interstellar exploration.
After countless nights spent in Walmart parking lots with their 91’ chevy van, highway breakdowns, and rented uHaul’s, the band is building a reputation for packing out clubs across the East coast. Now, they are writing modern psych rock anthems dipped in a vat of whatever was in the 70’s punch bowl. Eschewing tropes of stoner and psych bands in the scene today, these small-town east coasters are in it for the long haul with their seemingly unpredictable compositions. So, sit back, light one up and get ready for tripped out absolution from a band whose so-called ‘big grand entrance’ is only a harbinger of what is to come.
