Finnish heavy hitters Swallow The Sun have just released a brand new track, ‘Upon The Water’, which acts as a peek into the band’s forthcoming record, ‘When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light’.
The soon-to-be-released album is fuelled by the tragic passing of Aleah Stanbridge, and the will to continue after loss, as explained by guitarist Juha Raivio.
“Every word and note I wrote, I wrote for Aleah, and about my own battle since she passed. The album title, ‘When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light’, comes from Aleah’s own words, ‘When a shadow is forced into the light.’ That was exactly what I needed to do. To push myself out from the shadows. I’ve been pretty much a hermit in the woods for two and a half years. Gathering my life to write this album. That’s also why the subject is very personal and therefore hard for me to talk about. I’d rather leave it all to the music and words on ‘When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light’ to tell the story. It’s all there.”

The band’s new album, ‘When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light’, is slated for release on January 25th 2019 through Century Media Records.
