It ain’t often the City of Brotherly Hate produces music that isn’t A) learning disabled hip-hop B) pretentious art rock or C) hipster/horned rim glasses acoustic “singer”/”songwriter” drivel. So, when extremely extreme (r) stuff like Swarm of Arrows arrives on the barely-there scene, there’s reason to take notice. The Great Seekers Of Lesser Life, Swarm of Arrows’ newest ruling platter, has been described as “Converge meets Mastodon meets Kvelertak.” Now, we’re not one to say no or accuse the Swarm dudes of hyperbole, but the likeness/comparison isn’t far off.
To christen Swarm of Arrows on their new voyage through sweaty gigs, horrific bathroom situations, and merch counting parties, Dullest Records has sent us the exclusive—we’re so special—video premiere of “Alive Like Death.” Enjoy responsibly, please.
If that wasn’t all, Dullest Records also wants to give away three (3) copies of The Great Seekers Of Lesser Life and its Ryan Patterson-designed awesomeness. You know Ryan Patterson, right?! If not, well, you should. To win, you just have to email us. That’s it. New tuneage on CD AND new t-shirt just for emailing Decibel.
If you don’t want to email us for free extremity by guys you wouldn’t want to meet at night on Ranstead Street, Dullest Records is giving the record away as a digital download. So, point, click, take your little dark corrupt hearts HERE.
