Swedish avant-metallers, Diablo Swing Orchestra shares details from their long-awaited upcoming album entitled “PACIFISTICUFFS”
Diablo Swing Orchestra is notoriously hard band to pigeon-hole into a musical genre. Although comfortable nestled in the rock and metal worlds, they also incorporate elements of jazz, prog and even classical music. This healthy mix of genres spiced up with a theatrical sparkle, provides this band their flair.
The band suffered some lineup changes after the release of their last album, Pandora’s Piñata, in 2012. The lead vocalist Annlouice Lögdlund has been replaced by Kristin Evegård. It’s said that Evegård wasted no time integrating into the band, and along with an all-round more democratic process, added her lyrical and composition skills into the mix for this upcoming release.
The official press release by Spinefarm Records comments on “Pacifisticuffs” as follow:
The core style and approach of the band remains recognisable, but the band have turned their sights outwards rather than inwards. Less introspective than previous releases, Pacifisticuffs offers an expression of life’s highs and lows – and everything in between – all delivered with that recognisable DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA touch of technicolour.
