DING! DONG! THE DEAD WITCHES ARE AT DESERTFEST!

Desertfest are pleased to announce that we’ve disturbed an ancient burial ground and therefore, we have Dead Witches turning up to Desertfest this May.

Dead Witches are a heavy psych band that just so happens to feature Mark Greening (of Ramesses and former Electric Wizard, With the Dead). More rooted in straight-up 70s worship psychedelic rock and roll, stripping back the brutal edges of other projects Greening has been associated with in the past, Dead Witches lose none of the darkness he’s become known for. Their sole release to this point, last year’s Ouija which was recorded with former vocalist Virginia Monti, is an album which embraces slow, as one might expect, but moves along with swagger.

Rolling into 2018, new vocalist Soozi Chameleone (see also Killing Man Jaroh) takes the helm of frontwoman, with a new album featuring the fresh lineup expected to follow soon. Be sure to catch them at Desertfest.
