Swervedriver are set to release new album 'Future Ruins' on January 25th.
The influential band essentially sat on the outskirts of shoegaze, but in reality occupied their own solitary universe – a sort of British Husker Du, maybe, or a more punk inclined Mary Chain.
Re-united and re-energised, Swervedriver have completed work on a new album, which will be released through Rock Action in the New Year.
Out on January 25th, 'Future Ruins' is another blast of "space travel rock 'n' roll" and it's the sound of a band resolutely facing new possibilities.
Album opener 'Mary Winter' is online now, and it follows a traveller escaping this world; of course, it's all set to brainmelting guitar lines, and expert effects.
“In ‘Mary Winter’, the character is a spaceman who’s trying to remember what life is really like,” vocalist/guitarist Adam Franklin says of the new track. “There’s a lot of foreboding with regard to the future on this album.”
Tune in now.
'Future Ruins' will be released on January 25th.
