British shoegazers Swervedriver are returning with a new album titled Future Ruins. It follows 2015’s I Wasn’t Born To Lose You, which was the band’s first record in 17 years. The album drops Jan. 25, 2019 on Dangerbird Records. Today they've shared the first single, "Mary Winter."

“There’s a lot of foreboding with regard to the future on this album,” says frontman Adam Franklin. “Space is in there a lot too. In the first song, the character is a spaceman who’s trying to remember what life is really like. Also, it could be about somewhere in the world where winter isn’t like the winter here. A sunny place, but it’s December or January and you’re trying to remember winter. Something’s going on.”

Listen to the fuzz-heavy track and watch Swervedriver’s 2015 KEXP in-studio performance below.
