Swallow The Sun - Upcoming Album Summary

A while ago, Swallow The Sun have posted the following news about the band's upcoming album:

"So, we have finished recording the "Plague of Butterflies" and it's time to give you some details about this forthcoming release.

"Plague of Butterflies" is a story about an old hermit, deep woods, loneliness and the plague. It's one song in three parts and holds about 35 minutes of crushing gloom, beauty and despair. Music was originally ordered from us for a really interesting and big project, but the project was sadly abandoned. Because of this we are planning to use the music in different context - namely in a short movie - and we are in search for suitable partners to make this happen. We'll give more info on this later as things move on and wheels start to roll.

The track list of "Plague of Butterflies":

I. Losing the Sunsets
II. Plague of Butterflies
III. Evael 10:00

The album also includes the rare "Out of This Gloomy Light" demo that got us signed back in 2003. There was only three demos sent out, so this is really rare stuff and holds some of the darkest and coldest moments ever recorded by us.

"Out of This Gloomy Light" -demo:

01. Through Her Silvery Body
02. Out of This Gloomy Light
03. Under the Waves
04. Swallow (Horror pt.1)

"Plague of Butterflies" will be released at September 17th by Spinefarm Records.
