The Riven release their new single Far Beyond from their upcoming self titled debut album set for release 1st of March on The Sign Records. The new single Far Beyond offers more depth in the songwriting, it offers a song where the vocals is in focus and where the attention gets split between and the psychedelic guitars and takes you into a dreamy fantasy and Charlottas magnificent voice. The single is released with a lyric video built from details of the Maarten Donders created album artwork.
Check it out here:

“These songs feel worked through and honed for maximum effect, and while the Swedish and wider European heavy underground has seen a surge of similarly-minded blues-influenced ‘70s-rock aficionados, The Riven’s collective ability to drop the rush of “Fortune Teller” right into the moody sway of “I Remember” and still carry the listener with them speaks to their confidence as songwriters as well as the justification for that confidence in the output itself. Are they done growing? Probably not, but The Riven makes an encouraging place to start from not the least because it demonstrates how clear the band are in their purpose. They‘re schooled in what they want to do and how they want to do it. What they‘ll do next is a question, of course, for some later time. There‘s plenty of rock and roll here to last until then.” – The Obelisk

In 2018 The Riven went to Madrid, not to spend time under the Spanish sun but rather curled up in the valved cellar studio at Holy Cuervo Studios. In ten days they powered through the record’s nine songs producing an album that in the words of the drummer Olof Axegärd  “Is loud, is rock, is soul, and prog, it has it all!”. The Riven will be releasing their highly anticipated first full length with The Sign Records in the spring of 2019. The first single from the album is called ‘Fortune Teller’. Produced by Ola Ersfjord (Lucifer, Primordial, Dead Lord) the album manages to merge the diverse influences of its four members into a solid unit of Rock and Roll, that will leave no one oblivious.
