Swervedriver

Shoegaze greats Swervedriver have released a second song from their new album I Wasn’t Born To Lose You, titled “Autodidact,” which sounds like classic soaring, roaring Swervedriver. Stream it below. The band will be touring soon in support of the album, and they’ll be in NYC on March 27 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with tourmates Gateway Drugs and tickets are still available. If you’d like to see Swervedriver somewhere a little more cozy, they’ve just added a second NYC show at Mercury Lounge on March 30 with no opener listed. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale today (2/4) at noon with the regular on-sale starting Friday (2/6) at noon. The band have also released a second song from Updated dates are listed, along with a stream of “Autodidact” and “Setting Sun” from the new album, below.

Gateway Drugs, meanwhile, will release their debut album, Magick Spells, on March 3 via Cobraside. Their brand of overdriven psych rock should make for a good fit with Swervedriver. See for yourself by streaming “Fridays Are for Suckers,” with their full list of dates (a few without Swervedriver as well), below.
