Swervedriver have announced a new album, Future Ruins, and shared its first single, “Mary Winter.” Future Ruins is due out January 25, 2019 via Dangerbird. Listen to “Mary Winter” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

The British band made their mark in the 1990s as part of the original shoegazing movement, but returned in 2015 with I Wasn’t Born to Lose You, which was their first new album in 17 years.

The album was started in October 2017, just after finishing a U.S. tour performing their classic albums Raise and Mezcal Head in their entirety. “That’s a good way to record,” says frontman Adam Franklin in a press release, “because you’ve literally just seen the whites of the audience’s eyes and you’re thinking, ‘If that audience from last night were here now…’ You can’t get too mellow. We came home with 30 different songs.”

Franklin also had this to say about the album in the press release: “There’s a lot of foreboding with regard to the future on this album. Space is in there a lot too. In the first song, the character is a spaceman who’s trying to remember what life is really like. Also, it could be about somewhere in the world where winter isn’t like the winter here. A sunny place, but its December or January and you’re trying to remember winter. Something’s going on.”

Future Ruins Tracklist:

1 Mary Winter
2 The Lonely Crowd Fades In The Air
3 Future Ruins
4 Theeascending
5 Drone Lover
6 Spiked Flower
