Check out new track 'Death To Facism'
'Death To Facism'

An ever evolving phenomenon, Sweden's The Radio Dept. ceased operations in 2010 following the release of 'Clinging To A Scheme'.

Taking a break, the band stunned fans a few moments ago by placing a brand new track online. 'Death To Fascism' features plenty of blissful, ethereal, shoegaze textures but replaces the endless guitar effects by synths.

The pastoral nature of the music belies the directness of the message, with the vocal sample - "Smrt fasizmu, sloboda narodu" (Death to Fascism, freedom to the people)" - borrowed from Yugoslav partisans.

Check it out now.

UPDATE
It's been pointed out to us that 'Death To Facism' coincides neatly with the Swedish general election, which takes place on September 14th. Use those votes wisely!

So what do you think? Does it live up to their catalogue? Get involved in the discussion on Twitter.
