Taking the fundraiser route, British post-punk trio Esben And The Witch went to PledgeMusic to raise funds for the band's third studio LP with some help from legendary producer/engineer Steve Albini.

The trio managed to raise roughly "117 percent" of the initial goal thanks to a very devoted fan base, and will release their third LP later this summer. The first taste from the as-of-yet untitled album comes in the form of the eight-minute burner 'Blood Teachings'.

Lead vocalist Rachel Davies positively howls in a resurrected scowl like certain contemporary PJ Harvey. The effort is a riveting and brooding piece, lifting on with the chaotic metallic churn of Thomas Fisher's guitar. The build up is deftly precise, with the Brighton trio crashing through with a triumphant finale worth all the wait.

Listen to 'Blood Teachings' below. A New Nature will be released on September 1st.
