Humble PopMatters Readers, we are interrupting the internet's End-of-2013-Yeezus-Coverage for an important announcement: Swervedriver will be releasing their first new material in over 15 years.

According to the band’s website, December 9, 2013 will see the release of the Deep Wound EP, which will be available for digital download.  Also—awesomely—a new Swervedriver full length is planned for release in 2014.


Watch below to see the band performing “Deep Wound” back in 2012, as well as a live cut of the Raise scorcher “Pile Up” from the band’s 2011 Australian tour.

Today, Bruce Springsteen has announced his 18th studio album High Hopes, releasing on 13 January.

Tom Morello toured with the Boss through 2013 and greatly inspired this new set of music. So much so, in fact, that Morello appears throughout the new album’s tracks. By way of introduction to High Hopes, Springsteen has released a video featuring photos by Danny Clinch and Australian tour footage, as well as vintage video bits. Pre-orders are now available.
