The Wytches


The Wytches formed in 2011 after meeting at music college in Brighton. During these early years, the band relentlessly played any show they could find and managed to start picking up traction, eventually signing record deals with Heavenly Recordings and Partisan (for the USA).
2014 saw the release of their debut album, ‘Annabel Dream Reader’, an explosive collection of 10 tracks that weave seamlessly between explosive riffs, slick surf, furious garage rock, and fine tuned introspection. The record’s combination of visceral energy and haunting themes immediately struck a chord, introducing the band to a whole new audience. They would tour the world throughout the year, headlining shows and also sharing stages with the likes of METZ, Cloud Nothings, Blood Red Shoes, Pixies and Jamie T.
Since then, The Wytches’ discography has expanded to three further albums and countless EPs. Most recently, last year saw the band release their fourth album, ‘Our Guest Can’t Be Named’, via cult label Alcopop! Records – a testament to both their evolution and staying power.
Despite all that has come since, it’s still hard to believe ten years have passed since ‘Annabel Dream Reader’ first launched into our lives. To mark this occasion, The Wytches will be playing the full album for the first time in almost a decade, allowing a rare moment of retrospection for a band constantly driving forward.
