The Skinny: Today you can hear via SoundCloud (see above), “Incarceration,” a new song from A Swarm of the Sun’s upcoming album, The Rifts, which is scheduled for release later this month via Version Studio Records.

The highly anticipated sophomore album from the Swedish atmospheric post-rock duo was mixed and mastered by the acclaimed Magnus Lindberg (Cult of Luna, Refused, Khoma, Switchblade) and is a bleak and beautiful journey through the innermost landscapes of the heart and soul. A brooding concept album about losing hope, dreams falling apart, isolation and final moments of clarity and redemption. Unquestionably, this is A Swarm of the Sun’s most emotional and darkest album to date.
