Infants 09:05
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

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

The Warden 05:24
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

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

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).
