Elba Lane are back with their first single 'Destination Outer Space' from their forthcoming sophomore album 'Destinations' out in 2019. The band have built up a reputation for their live shows which became the momentum to record their second album ‘Destinations’ in the winter of 2018. The first single track off the album ‘Destination Outer Space’ plots a bold new course for the band and sonically paves the way for their new more cohesive and powerful sound. Both the single and upcoming album are firmly situated within 90s rock of Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana as well as rock contemporaries Foo Fighters and QOTSA.
Those who find solace in such 90s influences blended with the power of contemporary rock will enjoy the guitar-infused melodies, driving drums, fuzzy solos and introspective lyrics that Elba Lane provides on their new single ‘Destination Outer Space’ and forthcoming sophomore album ‘Destinations’.

The band has produced a layered strident synth experimental album with impacting drums, fuzzed out guitars and vocals that straddle the path of classic pop and modulated, messed up noise. While the sounds and feel are distinctly pop influenced, there is no escaping the essence and ethos of a post-punk musical upbringing.

Over the last 2 years, Suicide Swans have been working on their sophomore release, Augusta. Beginning back in the summer of 2015, the band got together in drummer Glen O'Shea's house in Toowoomba and began the recording process. Over the next year, the members slowly added to and built upon the original tracks to create the multi textured, layered recording that Augusta has become. It is our immense pleasure to bring you the first single and clip, Horses.
