Swervedriver Finishes First New Album in 16 Years, Set To Tour
English alt rock band Swervedriver released their first new single in over fifteen years, “Deep Wound”, last year, and the iconic band has just announced plans for a full album. Hopefully set to be released in early 2015, the as-yet-untitled album is the long-awaited follow-up to 1998’s 99th Dream. To support all this new music, Swervedriver is setting out on an American tour. They start things off in San Diego, CA, on March 4 at Casbah before heading to cities like Los Angeles, CA; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; Chicago, IL; Grand Rapids, MI; Dallas, TX (at Club Dada); Austin, TX (at South by Southwest); Atlanta, GA; Washington, DC; Brooklyn, NY (at Music Hall of Williamsburg); and Cambridge, MA.

Formed in Oxford in 1989 by core members Adam Franklin and Jimmy Hartridge, Swervedriver released four studio albums over their relatively short tenure. The band has a considerable flux of members, but in 1993, they settled with drummer Jez Hindmarsh, bassist Steve George, Franklin, and Hartridge. Their sound is a mix of classic pop, indie rock, and psychedelia.
