Christmas has come early this year, Swervedriver have announced their first new single in 15 years with a new album planned for 2014. The two track single is available NOW directly from the band as a download and features Mark Gardener of Ride on backing vocals.
After completing several successful US, Australian and European tours since reforming in 2008, it was the addition of NYC drummer Mikey Jones in 2012 that spurred a new creative period for the band.
Aired publicly for the first time last year with the band’s performance on the Jimmy Fallon TV Show (see below), Deep Wound is the first new track from the band since they reformed. The B-side re-working Dub Wound goes for the kind of driving Krautrock vibe hinted at on Adam Franklin solo releases (and is co-mixed by Ride’s Mark Gardener who also provides backing vocals on the A-side).
You can listen/buy the single below. The single will also be available via iTunes, Google Play, etc… from Monday 9th December.
