SWMRS Announce New Album, Berkeley’s On Fire

They’ve also unveiled a new single and video, April In Houston.

Oakland gang SWMRS have announced details of their forthcoming second album, as well as unveiling a brand-new single.

The band’s highly-anticipated new record, Berkeley’s On Fire, was produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Death Cab For Cutie) and will be coming out on February 15 via Fueled By Ramen, ahead of their massive UK and European tour.

“When we were writing these songs we were very conscious of our role in creating a space for people to escape from the nonstop negative media cycle,” co-frontman Cole Becker says regarding the record’s lyrical content. “It’s a strange time to be young; our generation knows the duality of feeling like an unstoppable force for change in one moment and a powerless wreck in the next. We wanted these songs to document that feeling that we’ve observed closely in ourselves and in the people we’ve shared our music with over the past three years.”
