Album ‘Good Living Is Coming For You’ out June 30th via Sub Pop
UK tour dates announced 

Tomorrow, Friday, June 30th, Sweeping Promises will release their astonishing new album, ‘Good Living Is Coming For You’, on Feel It Records in North America and Sub Pop for the rest of the world. 

Following the previous single releases of  “Eraser” and “You Shatter” comes the arresting new video for the album’s title track, “Good Living Is Coming for You.” The band are also set to tour the UK this October. 

Sweeping Promises’ Lira Mondal and Caufield Schnug on the new video: “For this video, we collaborated with one of our closest friends, experimental filmmaker Jessica Bardsley (Life Without Dreams, Goodbye Thelma). Drawing from the glamorous and bloodthirsty aesthetic of ‘70s and ‘80s horror films (Daughters of Darkness, The Hunger, The Lair of the White Worm, Dream Demon), the visual companion to “Good Living Is Coming for You” channels the song’s unshakable feeling of discontent and encroaching domestic doom through the confines of a DIY horror flick as seen by some nameless sleepless soul on late-night cable, the line between movie and infomercial blurred to infernal effect.” Directed by Jessica Bardsley, the “Good Living Is Coming For You” video is below. 

We are hours away from this eccentric and electrifying album release. With hours to go, Sweeping Promises dropping another taste of what we can expect in the collection further installs the excitement. “Good Living Is Coming For You” the title track of their record provides a more angular and aggressive creation from the pair, Sweeping Promises through the recording quality and tonal choices seem to transport their audience to the best of the synth/punk finds from the 80s. The new track embraces that connection and allows this intensity to strike and control the atmosphere, this track defines the power the pair convey.  

Sweeping Promises have added to their upcoming international tour schedule for 2023 in support of ‘Good Living Is Coming For You’. The band has added an album release show on June 29th in their hometown of Lawrence, KS, at the White Schoolhouse with North American touring beginning August 1st in St. Louis, MO, at Off Broadway and running through September 29th in Memphis, TN, at Gonerfest.
