Swervedriver Unveil New Video for “Setting Sun”, Announce Album Release Date

Alt rock veterans Swervedriver have released the video for their new single, "Setting Sun", along with details of a new album and tour.

A rather easygoing track, “Setting Sun”, the newest tune by Swervedriver, features the band’s familiar mix of shimmering and jagged guitars. The song is the lead single from I Wasn’t Born to Lose You, the band’s first album of new material since 99th Dream in 1998.

The current lineup features most of the band’s best-known ’90s lineup in singer/guitarist Adam Franklin, guitarist Jimmy Hartridge, and bassist Steve George. Mikey Jones from Franklin’s solo backing band is on drums.

The new album will be released 3 March. Tracklist and tour dates are below:
