The next Swearin’ album is called Fall into the Sun and it’s out October 5!


Swearin’ are back and have shared “Grow into a Ghost,” the infectious first single from their phenomenal forthcoming full-length Fall into the Sun, out October 5 worldwide on Merge! Reserve your copy of the album on CD, LP, or limited-edition coke-bottle clear Peak Vinyl in the Merge store where you can bundle it with an exclusive Swearin’ t-shirt that will ship separately to arrive in early September, prior to the album’s release. In addition, all pre-orders in our store will receive a pair of 3D glasses (more info on that soon!) while supplies last. Fall into the Sun is also available to pre-order through your preferred digital music service and at your favorite independent record store.

Listen to & share “Grow into a Ghost” by Swearin’ now

Fall into the Sun is a record that doesn’t try to obscure the passage of time but instead embraces it. “Getting older, your tastes change, and what you want to do changes,” says drummer Jeff Bolt. Those changes, though subtle, are impactful, making Fall into the Sun what Allison Crutchfield calls “the adult Swearin’ album.” It can be seen in songs like “Big Change,” where she says goodbye to Philly and the scene that she came up in, or in “Dogpile,” where Kyle Gilbride offers the line any aging punk can relate to: “By pure dumb luck I’ve gotten where I’m going.” Where Swearin’ used to pummel through their songs, on Fall into the Sun, they bask in what this newfound openness offers. Recorded in both Philly and Los Angeles, where Crutchfield now resides, Fall into the Sun took shape by the members giving their full trust to one another, and it can be seen in the final product.


Next week, Swearin’ embark on a West Coast tour with new labelmate Mike Krol, followed by a pair of shows with Jawbreaker. In September, they meet up on the East Coast for a quick run down to Hopscotch Music Fest with Ought and shows with Empath in October. Your homework: befriend Swearin’ on Facebook, buy tickets to the show nearest you, and pre-order Fall into the Sun!
