Everybody's favorite swing metal band (!), Diablo Swing Orchestra, have just released a new single, entitled 'Jigsaw Hustle', through their YouTube page.
The single finds the eclectic and ever-evolving band take influences from 80's disco (!!!), and it's the first written after the departure of Annlouice Loegdlund, opera singer and previous vocalist; in her replacement, singer Kristin Evegard will take the vocal duties of the group from now on.
