Swedish avant-garde metallers Diablo Swing Orchestra recorded their forthcoming album, Swagger & Stroll Down The Rabbit Hole, through 2020 but fell silent in January due to “some Covid 19 related setbacks” and therefore weren’t able to meet up and complete the record. D:S:O continues to roll out release details, slowly but surely, and have revealed the album will be released this November. Single releases are planned for August and October.
They recently checked in with a new update, offering up some details of what fans can expect from the album:
“Swagger & Stroll Down the Rabbit Hole is exactly 60 minutes & 50 sec long.
– It contains 13 tracks, no interludes
– Johannes & Martin sing lead vocals on one track each. The rest is shared equally between Kristin & Daniel
– We aim to release 4 singles
– Inspirations are from all over the place. Some familiar to old listeners and some new ones.
– The list of guest musicians is the longest one yet.
– The recording, mixing and mastering took 13 months. If you include pre-production it took 19 months.
– We’re exhausted and extreamly proud of this album
We can’t wait to share it with you guys.”
