I don't know that band. Are they good?

I know Witchcraft uses vintage Orange amps, and they're freakin' awesome.

yup.. a 70's band.. have seen them live twice... once in 73 at newcastle city hall when they were recording "live dates" and once here in CT about 5 or 8 years ago.. glad to see they are still going.

probably the best album is "argus" rock, melodic..they were very different...its on youtube

They are still going and touring pretty constantly. Recently Andy has been using a pair of Fender combos in stereo, behind plexiglass screens.
He was reunited with the amp that he had stolen years ago (Orange Matamp OR100) that he used a lot, amongst others. That was refurbed by a tech in Texas and Andy now has it. He would like to go back to an old school Orange back line along the lines of his old rig. I doubt whether it will be full stacks (more likely a couple of heads, each on a 2x12) such is the power of modern PAs. Main thing will be to make sure that they are up to scratch as far as lasting a full tour which includes UK, European and US/Canadian dates(http://wishboneash.com/blog/post/news_update/) without letting them down.
I too think of the twin harmony lead guitar attack and melodic lines of and the Album Argus from 1972 (http://wishboneash.com/albums/Argus/) which you must listen to. They have released much more material too.
