‘Year 8’ LP Now Available

Listen Here

Toronto’s Queen Of Swords, the magnetic mercurial healing-rock project created by Aerin Fogel, Founder/Artistic Director for Venus Fest and a spiritual counsellor, will release her sophomore album, Year 8, June 9 2023 on American indie Get Better Records. 

The title is an astrology reference to a technique called profections, in which every year of our life activates a different area of the chart. Aerin wrote the album in an 8th House year, “signifying deep change, intergenerational themes, and big life thresholds,” she says.

The raucous first single, “A Shame,” with its embodiment of softness and harshness, explores the relatable human emotion of shame normally kept hidden. The beauteous ballad “Ways We Heal” is about the amicable end of a relationship when two people aren’t growing together any longer; and the gentle “Waiting To Love” is about unravelling our patterns so that we can move into a more loving state and comfort.
