A Communication Manual


Placebo 03:40
Hold En 03:56
The Search 05:11


Original release information from 2003:

With two impressive (re) releases thus far for Tribunal Records, SWIFT now presents their first truly “new” material for the label, in the form of A Communication Manual. Waging War received nothing but stellar reviews upon its release, and with that SWIFT have been able to build mightily upon the very foundations that Thoughts Are Thought was able to construct initially.

A Communication Manual is a necessary, bold, and exciting step in this band’s career. It is easily their most accessible, but still remains loyal to what the fans have come to expect and love from this band. It’s masterfully crafted melodic rock with the occasional “metal” breakdown tossed in at precisely the best moment possible to achieve maximum effect. SWIFT know what they are doing, and the maturity of the material on A Communication Manual proves this to be evident. If you enjoy Incubus, Glassjaw, Deftones and (newer) Poison The Well you will surely enjoy SWIFT.
