Dangerbird Records has announced that they’ll be releasing Swervedriver’s new album, Future Ruins, on January 25, 2019. This follows the shoegaze/alternative rock outfit’s previous album, 2015’s I Wasn’t Born to Lose You (which was one of the first albums in the shoegaze revival that saw the return of Slowdive, Ride, and Lush).
The new album’s first single, “Mary Winter,” has been released via the usual streaming outlets, or just watch the video below. Although Swervedriver has always been described as a “shoegaze” band, their sound was actually heavier and more aggressive than their contemporaries — something that’s readily apparent on the new single.
