Swedish psych band Flowers Must Die have a trippy new video and LP announcement

'Kompost', their first full album on Rocket Recordings, will come out in April

Flowers Must Die have been on the psych scene a while now. Just over 10 years in fact.

But, last year marked something of a new chapter for the Swedish band. They added a new member (Lisa Ekeland, on vocals and theremin) and signed up with Rocket Recordings (home to Goat and Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation) to put out an EP, ‘Sista Valsen’.

Now, they’re release their first album through the label. ‘Kompost’ will come out on 28 April.

As you can see Flowers Must Die aren’t really too bothered about the normal band dynamic (bandmembers’ ages range from 28 to 63).

They’re sharing their new track/video ‘Hit’ along with the news.

They’ve also confirmed a run of UK shows for later in the spring:

Brighton, Prince Albert – 25 April
London, The Shacklewell – 26
Bristol, The Cube – 28
