We are really feeling Swallow the Sun this week. Not only did we publish their bleak video for the melancholy, painful, 14-minute-long “Lumina Aurea,” we now have a single from their forthcoming When a Shadow is Forced into the Light.
The new album will be released on January 25 via Century Media Records, and the new track, “Upon the Water,” encompasses the feel of the entire album. Like the sprawling Songs from the North, these new tracks resonate with a sense of isolation and sadness, marked by frontman Mikko Kotamäki’s versatile vocals.
Take a listen to “Upon the Water” below, and pre-order When a Shadow is Forced into the Light here!
