News - The Swellers

  • Our friend Evan (Into It. Over It.) showed us this spot and it made our touring in Pittsburgh experience infinitely better. You walk in and hear punk rock music, see tattooed mid to late twenties punk or hardcore enthusiasts working behind the counter and it feels like home.

    I ordered the thai peanut tofu sandwich, barley soup and a delicious iced mocha. The place doubles as a place for delicious coffee do I felt with my new found interest I should indulge.

    The sandwich was misleadingly filling although it looks like a smaller serving at first glance. Cooked just right and anything Thai related adds perfection to food. The soup was the first time I willingly tried barley and I loved it, perfect addition to the sandwich. I did the fat guy thing and dipped my sandwich in the soup mmmmmmm.

  • For their first photoshoot on Fueled By Ramen, The Swellers visited the Asbury Park Convention Hall (former home of the Skate And Surf and Bamboozle Festivals) before their show at The Stone Pony with Four Year Strong and Set Your Goals.

  • A few tours ago we were brought around the corner from the venue The White Rabbit to a restaurant simply named, Green. Nick is vegan and I’m vegetarian so while everyone goes off to eat fast food or generic stuff we try to find the best healthy (or non meat as plentiful) spots.

    You walk into a cool Tex-Mex decorated restaurant with amazing smells and a friendly staff. We were seated and the menu was so great it was hard to pick one item. We always order a buffalo wing appetizer and I usually ask what I call “The American Question” which is, “which thing is the biggest?”. Servers usually hate it, but I like being smart with my money. Nick ordered the chicken fried steak, Dan our guitar tech ordered the Reuben an I got the “Neatloaf” aka vegan meatloaf.

  • My friend James teaches an after school program for seventh and eighth graders at Flint's Southwestern Academy which was perfect because we needed some younger kids to act in our new video for our song, "Inside My Head". James' co-worker let us use her son, Anthony, and his two sisters to act in the video and they did a killer job. In exchange James asked if I could come to his class and teach the kids a little bit about drums for their lesson "Things That Go Boom" and drumming was something everyone could relate to.

    I'm always into giving back to the community and figured it'd be cool challenging myself with public speaking to some inner city kids who could honestly care less about me or our band. If I could hold their attention that would be a feat in itself.

  • Happy birthday to Ryan Collins of The Swellers from all of us at Fueled By Ramen! We hope it's a blast...see you in NYC on the 29th!
