Swervedriver announce new LP, ‘I Wasn’t Born To Lose You’ (listen to a song ++ artwork and tracklist)

by Bill Pearis


As mentioned, shoegaze vets Swervedriver are releasing their first new album since the ’90s. Details are now out: it’s titled I Wasn’t Born To Lose You and will be out March 3 via Cobraside. That’s the cover art above and you can stream “Setting Sun” from it below. While pretty mellow, it’s undeniably Swervedriver, from the guitar leads to the distinctive harmonies. Check it out

You can catch Swervedriver live on their upcoming tour which hits NYC at Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 27. LA band Gateway Drugs open and tickets are still available.
