A FEW WORDS
‘Well of Spells’ is the debut album by new Oz super rockers, Seawitch.
Fiona Horne, founder of 80s girl punk band, The Mothers, 90s charting rock star of DEF FX and infamous real life Witch, and Dave (Spiff) Hopkins, guitarist/founder of 80s/90s seminal surf rock band Hellmenn, sat down in the chaos of Covid times isolating together, with a vision to create a song a day.
What happened in those two weeks was a mixture of magick and skill, as these two conjured a web of heavy rock, strewn with spells and enchantments, anchored with catchy fuzz feels that get your head banging and feet moving.
The album is available as a Limited Edition Purple Vinyl (100 copies only), Limited Edition Orange Vinyl (100 copies only), black vinyl, CD and digitally. All vinyl comes with a digital download card. All tracks will also be added to your Bandcamp catalogue.
It was Spiff’s idea for Fiona to weave her spells into lyrics and tracks like ‘Esbat’, (a moon love spell), ‘Dark Knight’ (a ritual of release dedicated to the dark Goddess Hecate) and ‘Witches Forever’ (the first single dedicated to all the Witches who lost their lives at the stake and noose) The album fully expresses the magick at the core of Fiona’s life as a Witch and author of fourteen books on the Craft.
Musically, ‘Well of Spells’ has its roots deep in the hard rock sounds of the 70s, with Spiff’s sonic mayhem guitar exploding out of your speakers and bass player Brad Miller’s fingers a freight train thundering through the tracks. Fiona wields her guitar like a wand, her voice more powerful than ever, sending goosebumps up your spine.
Dive into the salty stoner wonder of ‘Well of Spells’, coming out in October just in time for Halloween.
