After their album in 2013 Surfing Strange, the vocalist Allison Crutchfield announced the end of the band and after her solo project from Allison, Swearin' are finally back with the new album Fall Into The Sun via Merge Records.
"The best Swearin’ record yet." DIY
While it’s the first release from Swearin’ in five years, 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.
