Nashville-based psych-rock quartet All Them Witches have shared a new music video for ‘3-5-7’, the second track to be revealed from their forthcoming album Sleeping Through The War. Following the lead single ‘Bruce Lee’, ‘3-5-7’ was directed by Robby Staebler – drummer of All Them Witches and artist and photographer in his own right. Speaking of the video, he explains: “All beings suffer. One of the goals of being alive should be to understand the causes of suffering. For me this video is about perspective and the process of self-realisation.”

Sleeping Through The War was produced by Grammy Awarding winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell) and follows the band’s acclaimed Dying Surfer Meets His Maker, released last year. The fundamental laws that govern Sleeping Through The War are the same that have made All Them Witches a cult favourite. Big fuzz, deep grooves, cosmic vision. But years of jamming their way across America, and three European tours through 2016 – recently selling out London’s Scala, have made their song craft more dynamic, more responsive, and years of psychic interactions between band members has lead them into a headier sonic space. 

The band’s sound on Sleeping Through The War has become so expansive, you can hear echoes of Dr. John’s Gris-Gris, the glacial expanses of Sigur Ros, the stoner sludge of Kyuss, and the meditative om of the East.  “We wrote it in about six days,” says guitarist Ben McLeod.  “Where in the past we would have just gone ahead and written and recorded in the studio, we were like nah we’re going to do it with Dave, let’s be prepared.  It was real minimal; Dave didn’t want us to get too crazy.”  He adds, “we wanted a record you could crank.  And we wanted girl backup singers.”  It might seem like an odd detail, the appearance of the Nashville songstress’s Caitlin Rose, Erin Rae, and Tristen on backing vocals add a classic rock flourish, at odds with their own work, but it makes sense within the context of the songs and within the context of their career.
