I'm already going to go ahead and vote for this song as Halloween track of the year. Spooky band name? (Esben and the Witch) Check. Dark, foreboding, Autumn-like sounds? Check. Release date timed to coincide perfectly with the Halloween season? October 11/12, and check.

Hailing from Brighton, England, Esben and the Witch make music that renders goth as a pale imitation of the dark side. Earthy, pagan-esque sounds rumble through their music, making it a good soundtrack for things like...your next trip to Stonhenge.

They've just signed to Matador Records and will release the afformentioned Marching Song as a limited edition 12" before going on to release a full length album for the label next year. The single will include the songs ‘Done Because We Are Too Menny’ and ‘Souvenirs.’

They're also appearing at Matador at 21, as well as opening up for Foals on their tour. Not to be missed.

Watch the band bruise before your very eyes in the video for "Marching Song."
