Take a sneak peek at the cover art for the Swayback's new record, Double Four Time
A couple of months ago, you might remember us saying something about the Swayback dudes getting a new drummer and having finished their new record. At the time, we shared a track with you from the forthcoming platter (due out on March 3 at the hi-dive with Hearts of Space and the Baltic), but the band was still working out the artwork and deciding on a name. Well, that's all since been firmed up, and we now have a sneak peek of the cover art for Double Four Time, as the record's been christened, illustrated by Backbeat's own Noah Van Sciver and colorized by Swayback frontman (and graphics guru) Eric Halborg. Page down to have a look.
Marvel at the magnificient cover art of the Swayback's forthcoming Double Four Time.

From Eric Halborg:
"Noah hit me with a black and white line drawing a few months back, and I spent the last week coloring it in. Was pretty awesome coloring a comic illustration; had never done that, and I have been into comics since I was a wee mite. I was looking at Love and Rockets and 8 Ball comics as reference, and then added some of the textural weirdness that I do. I asked Noah to draw a mythological blues club called the "Double Four Time," with people dancing in the streets outside the club. That song is about having a place to cut loose, leave worries/self perception behind...that place being the Double Four Time."
