Swedish atmospheric post-rock group A Swarm of the Sun have announced that their second full-length album, “The Rifts” will be released on January 30, 2015 via Version Studio Records.
Mixed and mastered by the acclaimed Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, Refused, Khoma, Switchblade), “The Rifts” is a bleak and beautiful journey through the innermost landscapes of the heart and soul. A brooding concept album about losing hope, dreams falling apart, isolation and final moments of clarity and redemption. Unquestionably, this is A Swarm of the Sun‘s most emotional and darkest album to date.
A Swarm of the Sun is an atmospheric post-rock duo from Stockholm, Sweden comprised of Erik Nilsson (Aoria) and Jakob Berglund and “The Rifts” is their third release following an EP entitled “The King of Everything” (2007) and the full-length debut “Zenith”, released in 2010.
“The Rifts” will be available on a limited double-vinyl edition and on eight-page digipack CD. Pre-orders will be announced soon.
