The Official Video for Sweeping Promises’ “Good Living Is Coming for You” is out now!

On Friday, June 30th, Sweeping Promises will release their astonishing new album, Good Living Is Coming For You, on Feel It Records in North America and Sub Pop for the rest of the world. Following the previous single releases of  “Eraser” and “You Shatter” comes the arresting new video for the album’s title track, “Good Living Is Coming for You.”

Sweeping Promises’ Lira Mondal and Caufield Schnug on the new video: “For this video, we collaborated with one of our closest friends, experimental filmmaker Jessica Bardsley (Life Without DreamsGoodbye Thelma). Drawing from the glamorous and bloodthirsty aesthetic of ‘70s and ‘80s horror films (Daughters of Darkness, The Hunger, The Lair of the White Worm, Dream Demon), the visual companion to “Good Living Is Coming for You” channels the song’s unshakable feeling of discontent and encroaching domestic doom through the confines of a DIY horror flick as seen by some nameless sleepless soul on late-night cable, the line between movie and infomercial blurred to infernal effect.”
Directed by Jessica Bardsley, the “Good Living Is Coming For You” video is available HERE (if you dare…).
Sweeping Promises have added to their upcoming international tour schedule for 2023 in support of Good Living Is Coming For You. The band has added an album release show on June 29th in their hometown of Lawrence, KS, at the White Schoolhouse, with North American touring beginning August 1st in St. Louis, MO, at Off Broadway and running through September 29th in Memphis, TN, at Gonerfest.

What People are saying about Sweeping Promises:
“‘Eraser,’ the lead single from the Lawrence, Kansas duo Sweeping Promises’ sophomore album Good Living Is Coming For You, is a rich punk arrangement set adrift with power-pop hooks and a gripping, catalytic back-beat.” [“Eraser” Best 50 Songs of 2023 (So Far)] - PASTE
“Sweeping Promises play relentlessly catchy, gloriously low-fi punk.” [“Eraser” The Best Songs of 2023 So Far] - ROLLING STONE
“Their specific brand of lo-fi post-punk is bolstered by its pop sensibilities, with singer Lira Mondal’s melodic howls driving the track.” [“Eraser”] - EXCLAIM!
“Gone are the utilitarian basslines, replaced by a warmth and coziness that still crackles with urgency. Mondal’s harmonies are tinny but effectively insistent, compact yet invigorating.” [The Five Best Songs of the Week (#2)] - STEREOGUM
“You don’t simply listen to Sweeping Promises — you move, you groove, you strike a pose with an effortlessly cool ‘tude.” [“Pain Without a Touch,” Nov. 2021] - NPR MUSIC
“…‘Hunger for a Way Out’ is an instant classic, thick with ‘80s retro-surf nostalgia and a jabbing ‘Isolation’-era Joy Division bass riff, deftly sidestepping pastiche with its forward-thinking DIY ethos both compassionate and furious with the ways of the world.” - NME (on Hunger for a Way Out, Aug. 2020)
