Famed 90’s veterans Swervedriver have announced yet another fall tour in support of their newest album, Mary Winter (2018), which swelled with the distinctive, textured guitar characteristic of almost every one of their songs. It keeps with the theme of dreamy and atmospheric vocals shrouded in guitars, and making it impossible to mistake this for any other band— and we’re sure it’s beautiful live.

Along with their tour announcement, the band has also announced the release of a new digital double single, “Reflections” B/W “I Think I’m Going To Feel Better”, which will be out in time for Record Store Day, September 13th, via Dangerbird Records.

Tickets for the tour go on sale August 23rd at 10am local time. See all dates below, and find tickets here.

Duel, their most successful song to date, has much of the same distinctive guitar line heard in quite a few songs on ‘Future Ruins’, and it’s clear the band has not lost their roots after all these years. Although that entire album, Mezcal Head (and subsequent albums), were released to only moderate success, Swervedriver has fortunately continued to forge on. It was likely a reason the band first decided to split, going on a long and indefinite hiatus in 1998, which was fortunately broken in 2015 with the release of new music.
