Three excellent British alt rock bands bring their joint tour to London. Esben And The Witch are from Brighton, and perform from their debut album 'Wash the Sins Not Only the Face', which comes stocked full of haunting, chilly melodies with a pulsating rhythm section. Teeth Of The Sea have a new album out called 'Master', their third collection of fabulously unsettling, thrilling and mournful noises: they switch between psychedelic drone-rock, electronic ambience and violent, EBM-influenced synth-pop in a heartbeat. Thought Forms, meanwhile, tend to create atmospheric, delay-soaked, ethereal shoegaze that shades into post-rock – but they can conjure up a mighty noise-rock racket too. The three bands will cycle in the support slot throughout the tour, so if you want to see all of them (which we recommend you do) then turn up early.
