Swervedriver is on the road in Australia performing Raise in its entirety, and as promised, they performed a couple of new songs. At the September 26th show in Brisbane they debuted two new songs, "Buzz" and "Husk." So far, no audio or video of the tracks has appeared online.

Swervedriver fans attending the shows will definitely want to stop by the merch booth to pick up the first Swervedriver release in 15 years. A vinyl pressing of "Deep Wound" (with backing vocals from Ride's Mark Gardener) on red and yellow vinyl will be available in limited quantities at each show. The limited edition pressing went on sale through Tym Records a few weeks ago and sold out in less than 24 hours, so be sure to grab a copy if you find one at the gigs. Fans in other territories who missed out on previously can grab a copy while they last here. (Thanks to the Swervedriver forum for the link!)

Swervedriver also was interviewed by Australia's Sunday Morning Herald and discussed their affinity for Australia, the "ridiculous" shoegaze term, and leader Adam Franklin also discussed the band's history:

"Our music was always about a sort of wanderlust for the USA; it's about driving across the desert, which, of course, we'd never done. We first got into car imagery driving around Oxfordshire and down to London listening to tapes with the windows open; it was the Oxford version of the US road trip."
