September 05, 2018

DIY rock group Swearin' is back and getting ready to drop Fall into the Sun, their third studio album, after deciding to take a break as a group in 2012. Singles "Grow into a Ghost" and "Untitled (LA)" have been released ahead of the project, and today the group shares the third album cut, "Future Hell." Co-songwriter to Allison Crutchfield, Kyle Gilbride, takes the lead on this one, his stretchy vocals serving as a lively vehicle for the group's vivid and descriptive storytelling, at once fantastic and surreal. "I hit the crumbling town / People seemed like they were somewhere else / Eyes were glowing jewels overwhelmed," he warbles in the second verse, painting a picture of an underworld that, honestly, is very intriguing.

"Future Hell," Gilbride writes via email, is about "Visions of an unseen place and time, learning lessons of disenchantment from a new and hostile world. Finding a way back, friendship and independence reveal marks on the trail." Listen to it above.
