Published Sep 16, 2008Following the release of last years Tio Bitar LP, Swedish psych rockers Dungen will be releasing 4 at the end of September. The album, which is their sixth according to Wikipedia, marks a new direction for the band. A press release states that the album "extends the acclaimed Swedish outfit's sound past psychedelia into something far more rare. Moving beyond mere stylistic concerns, 4 finds Gustav Ejstes' focus on the extremes of Dungen's sound separating into two entities. Blazing, raw guitar workouts have their own time and place, but now, so do stirringly orchestrated, jazz-cooled compositions with cinematic undertones.
To support the record, the rockers will embark on an autumnal North American tour that kicks off on October 24 in Brooklyn. From there, the band will pop into Canada for a Toronto show on Halloween before returning to the States and heading west. The whole thing ends in L.A. on November 12.
