Announce New Album ‘Good Living Is Coming For You’ due June 30th via Sub Pop

On June 30thSweeping Promises will release their new album, ‘Good Living Is Coming For You‘, on Feel It Records in North America and Sub Pop for the rest of the world. Now, the band is also sharing the colossal lead single and the album’s opening track “Eraser.” 
Sweeping Promises’ members Lira Mondal and Caufield Schnug say “Eraser” is “a malevolent creep – an overly ambitious, shadowy force who bears an uncanny resemblance to you. She watches your every move, mirrors your motions, and ultimately uses your voice against you without you ever noticing what she’s done. She’s unchecked ambition, a paranoid girl Friday, an overriding impulse to reflect rather than project. She must be stopped at all costs.”

Our first introduction to Sweeping Promises blew us away. Now with details of a new album, the excitement is ramped up. The outfit has shared a new single “Eraser“, which is the infectious album opener and perfectly positioned as the first track to capture that outstanding energy of Sweeping Promises.

Immediately capturing their immersive punk attitude through their soundscape, which engulfs the listener through the fierce inclination, the track is punchy and radiates this intoxicating spirit. The track captures the aggressive appeal and melodic impression through the lo-fi commitment. The duo keep this immense pace, focusing on the melody through the intense deliverance, the melody alters the direction but this track showcases the pair’s ability to flourish without sacrificing aggression or dynamism.

Good Living Is Coming For You was recorded and produced by Mondal and Schnug in their home studio in Lawrence, KS, and follows their 2020 debut, Hunger for a Way Out, and their insistent 2021 single, “Pain Without a Touch.” Coverage for both quickly followed from the likes of Stereogum (Band to Watch), Pitchfork (Selects), and NPR Music, who raved, “Sometimes the best pop songs stick to the basics: no muss, no fuss. With the Sweeping Promises, they add some fuzz. The same way the Pixies wrote pop songs with a nasty sheen, this Boston post-punk band dirties up earworm melodies with a lo-fi charm. You can play spot the influence all over this debut: Young Marble Giants here, Kleenex/LiLiPUT there, some B-52s and Blondie for good measure. Lira Mondal has a voice that leaps and bounds with the enthusiasm of a bedroom performance, hairbrush in hand. But mostly, you can hear a band dream out loud…”
Good Living Is Coming For You is available now to preorder from Feel It Records & Sub Pop. LP pre-orders from Feel It Records will be on white/black marbled vinyl, and those from megamart.subpop.com will receive copies on red vinyl (while supplies last).
