Dear Swans -
We are very happy to announce that we have secured our Fall 2019 album cover and name. In addition to recording the album, we have been looking through thousands of photos for the perfect picture and it all came together this week. There is a huge Italian influence that runs throughout the album and it made sense to go back to our great friend in Italy, Andrea Gottardi, who also contributed the cover for a moment of happiness, our 6th release and my personal favorite. Alessandro Dematteis, a co-writer on the album is contributing the back cover which is still in progress. We were...
Here's yet another track that was eliminated from our album, even though there was some popular demand for it to stay. Sorry, Marco and Kitty! And, get well Mad Max. I've completely remixed this one with an extended hard ending after an acoustic start. I've added some additional acoustics, one being our trademark Nashville Tuning acoustic that John turned me on to during Things You Know And Love. Rush To Find, in actuality, has been now cut from 7 records. The sad part is... I really like this version. Ha!
CRANK UP YOUR HEADPHONES AT THE END. If you are playing this through your phone...

BLACK SWAN LANE - REVENGE (UNMASTERED ACOUSTIC MIX)
There was recently a poll on facebook on which BLACK SWAN LANE songs you would like an acoustic mix of, so by popular demand, here you go. The poll was on a new BLACK SWAN LANE facebook fan page called BLACK SWAN LANE RELAX AND BREATHE which is run by Alessandro De Matteis in Italy and Terry McGarry in England. Thanks guys! It took an entire day in the studio to complete this edited version which has several changes as well. I'm enjoying turning some of these into acoustic versions which is bringing out a lot of our picking...

Longos períodos de silêncio. Aqui, ou em geral. Os motivos têm sido vários, desde trabalho a exercícios criativos que nos pedem segredo e um tempo para nós. O mundo manifesta uma vontade de nos enredar numa teia de ansiedade constante....
Coming in from the cold.
Black Swan Lane return with their first long-player since 2014 and it has been a challenge for some fans to keep a lid on expectations. We’re talking Blade Runner 2049 levels of anticipation here. Would such feverish echelons be met? Read on, but if you just want the three word review:_
BUY THIS RECORD.
Black Swan Lane have always explored the boundaries between shoegaze, dreampop and post-punk. Along the way they’ve drawn comparison with some of Manchester’s most...
There are a lot of Black Swan Lane supporters, but there are a handful of people who have tirelessly promoted our band, and Kelvin Knight was one of those people. Kelvin played, lived and breathed music and he genuinely wanted to help bands he felt an emotional connection with and wanted nothing in return. As of late, in addition to his admiration for BSL, he has been promoting some great UK bands - Esper Scout, Lazy Eye and The New Southern Electric. He had severe health problems for years, but came alive when he was able to connect to a certain song or band. He was also humble and showed...
