Dead Souls Collide, by the Atlanta, Georgia post punk, alternative band, Black Swan Lane, will officially be released by Eden Records Group and Wanderland Music Publishing / BMI on December 12th, 2023. The eleventh Black Swan Lane full length album contains 11 tracks and is the follow up to the band’s 2022 highly acclaimed album, Blind.
Black Swan Lane has become known as the most Manchester, U.K. sounding band in the U.S., and having previously featured two original members of the Chameleons U.K. on four albums, only emphasizes the British post-punk and dark alternative sound. Dead Souls Collide was recorded and mixed over the course of ten months at Wanderland Studios USA, and it was mastered by Donn Aaron at Mixon Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.
A 2023 favorite of The Big Take-Over magazine, Dead Souls Collide received a wonderful review by editor, Jack Rabid: “Full of beautiful post-punk power, DSC surpasses even 2022’s Blind and 2021’s Hide In View. There’s a post Strange Times or Heaven Up Here sweep and dark (not goth) textural tension in the stand out opener, “Covenant,” “The Sacrifice,” and the (Irish) Whipping Boy-esque “Thorns.” BSL are worth following where’er they go.”
Photographer, Natalia Drepina, created the cover artwork which goes perfectly with the theme of the album. The Photograph, “Soul Wanderings,” was a perfect choice for Dead Souls Collide. Natalia is a master of expression and her self portraits explore the dark, abstract explorations of the human condition.
Art Director and talented photographer Robyn Elizabeth Abrams, also lent her voice on a couple of tracks on the new album including, “Forever Lost” and “Inhibitions,” the album’s ethereal finale.
