August’s Band to keep an eye on – The Swellers
Back in 09′ the punk outfit became better known worldwide when they signed to indie label Fueled By Ramen and released their fourth full-length Ups And Downsizing to universal acclaim. Being no strangers to touring – “We tour because we’re not good at anything else. We love our songs and want to play them all night and see our friends, so we go on tour” – the band impressed concertgoers when they opened for label-mates Paramore and toured with the likes of Set Your Goals and Less Than Jake. In 2010 the boys are stepping it up a notch as they join the Give It A Name Introduces Tour (which brought the UK Lights and Versaemerge in 09′) across the UK and Europe as well as a three-week stint on the legendary Vans Warped Tour. The live environment is where The Swellers belong, it’s where both the music and band come to life, so I strongly suggest you make your way over to see them before they start selling out venues!
