about

The Swedish duo A Swarm of the Sun will release their third album, "The Rifts", on January 30, 2015. It is a bleak and beautiful journey through the innermost landscapes of the heart and soul. A brooding album about losing hope, dreams falling apart, isolation and final moments of clarity and redemption. Unquestionably, this is the band's darkest and most emotional album to date.

A Swarm of the Sun is Erik Nilsson and Jakob Berglund. "The Rifts" is written and produced by the band, and recorded by Erik Nilsson at Garaget Studio and The Church of Brännkyrka. Drums are performed and recorded by Karl Daniel Lidén (Vaka, The Old Wind) at Studio Gröndahl. The album is mixed and mastered by the acclaimed Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, Refused, Khoma, Pg.lost).

Track Name: Infants
Hope of giving birth
The savior of the Earth
The promise of the pure
The hope of something more
Is dying in our hands
It never stood a chance
To what we get instead
When hope is finally dead

We can not let you near
They fight you with your fears
They never let you go
So you can never know
The pain of giving birth
To killers of the Earth
Destroyers of the heart
We need to stay apart
Track Name: Incarceration
They drag me down into
They want you too

So I close all the doors
And cling to the reason for

It's all for you
Track Name: The Warden
All this will not be

All you believed in
You keep in

All that would free you
Will kill you

All this
The being you're needing

You keep in
You're leaving the dreaming
Track Name: These Depths Were Always Meant for Both of Us
The dream I left behind was never real
But dreams I leave behind are all I feel
And hope has never seemed so far away
I need you to survive another day
I pull you deep below to make you see
That you're the greatest thing I'll never be

I need you by my side to fight the fear
Without you every reason disappear
The only thing to keep me from the end
Is you and all the hope that you defend
I pull you even deeper down below
The dream is all you ever need to know
