When we profiled Allison Crutchfield last year, she said that her former band Swearin’ was officially over. They released their final album, Surfing Strange, in 2013 and unceremoniously called it quits. Crutchfield decided it was time to break out on her own, and she wrote a solo album called Tourist In This Town, which was released via Merge Records. But then, a little over a year after we published that story, Swearin’ announced their return. Crutchfield and the band’s co-leader Kyle Gilbride and drummer Jeff Bolt made amends and wrote a new album.
Fall Into The Sun is the result of that reconciliation, and we have already heard a couple of singles: “Untitled (LA),” “Future Hell,” and “Grow Into A Ghost.” The album is streaming in full now over at NPR; listen to it here.
Fall Into The Sun is out 10/5 via Merge.
