TOUR NEWS : Witch Fever support Cassyette at Glasgow SWG3 Warehouse, 7th April


“vital and inclusive doom-punk for a world in chaos” – NME: 4*

“Congregation goes hard and heavy from the off, but there’s nuance to frontwoman Amy Walpole’s lyrics rather than just directionless rage” – Rolling Stone 

“it’s clear that Witch Fever’s journey is just beginning, and this is the platform from which they can blaze a blinding trail, smash that stubbornly patriarchal system, and keep living deliciously” – Kerrang!: 5/5 


Known for their riff-heavy, lyrically furious music that consistently bursts out of the confines of one genre, the Manchester quartet Witch Fever have announced a tour supporting Cassyette alongside Harpy across the UK and Europe this April.  Tickets available here.

Witch Fever’s first full-length project, Congregation, oversaw a paradigmatic shift in music and culture, with its boundaryless punk and earth-shattering doom ushering in a new era of heavy music that is accessible, confrontational, and most importantly socially conscious. Since its release via Music For Nations / Sony last year, the Manchester four-piece have continued in their defiant refusal to be confined by gender or genre in their music, whilst also ensuring a positive impact on the communities they inhabit and support.

This past year the band have been introducing Congregation to ever growing audiences. Between playing countless festivals in the UK and further afield, supporting Nova Twins on their recent UK tour, and promoting independent venues in association with Music Venues Trust with a #UnitedByMusic tour they have also found time to start the Witch Fever Book Club aiming to promote reading and underrepresented ideas, and playing benefit gigs to donate to gender affirmation funds.

The band saw themselves tour the UK with their label mates and co-Manchester residents Hot Milk this past November and are now set to embark on a tour with Cassyette and Harpy across the UK and Europe this April.


Witch Fever tour dates:

1st April – Cardiff, The Globe
2nd April – Bristol, The Fleece
4th April – Manchester, Academy 2
5th April – Wolverhampton, KK’s Steelmill
7th April – Glasgow, SWG3 Warehouse
8th April – Sheffield, The Leadmill
10th April – Leicester, O2 Academy 2
11th April – London, The Scala
13th April – Portsmouth, Takedown

Refusing to be confined, Witch Fever have always defied expectations as individuals. Now, they’re defying expectations as a band. Congregation is the sound of punk without boundaries of any kind.

While the subject matter of their songs is often heavy, Witch Fever’s attitude certainly isn’t.
