We teamed up with our friends at Glamour Kills to give one lucky fan and a friend the chance to go to New York City and spend the day with The Swellers before their show at Irving Plaza on The AP Tour. Watch the video from their trip here!
News - The Swellers
|December 19, 2011
We're stoked to have The Swellers be part of the Glamour Kills Winter Sampler! It also features songs by our friends in The Wonder Years, Set Your Goals, Fireworks, The Ready Set, We Are The In Crowd and many more. Click HERE to download it for FREE!
Germany is a wild and wonderful place. There are some really confusing things about it, which is mainly translation related. We'll see band names on stickers posted in venues like "Dickfoot" and "Bent Cross" which is just the Bad Religion logo diagonal. It's hilarious. The architecture is beautiful and people here LOVE punk rock so it's great to play for everyone here.
Some things people from the states, specifically people not in bands, don't hear about are the infamous "German Compliments." A German compliment is a very nice thing someone will tell you followed by something extremely rude, honest and mean. They say what they want and you'll find out instantly.
After nearly 6 years of touring nonstop, The Swellers are proud to announce that we are finally doing our first proper co-headline tour in the US (and Toronto!). Our friends You Me At Six are joining us as headliners on the bill, as well as special guests Twin Atlantic and We Are The Ocean. You will finally be able to see The Swellers play a long set, including material from all of our releases, in really rad, intimate venues. Now it may seem obvious to some of you, but this is where you come in.
You buying a ticket is not only guaranteeing that you'll get to see The Swellers and all the great bands playing on our tour (some of these dates are going to sell out FAST, can't guarantee you will be able to buy tickets at the door), but it is also casting a vote.
I'm not sure if you're familiar with my love of chocolate, but I LOVE chocolate. Like... to the point where I have bands or people on our crew tell me NOT to eat it most of the time because I think I'd actually overdose on it if that's possible. I don't drink and we went on a brewery tour while we recorded and it was semi-interesting but now I finally get my day to shine. In Birmingham, England we visited the CADBURY CHOCOLATE FACTORY!
We waited in line and received a Curly Wurly and a Crunchie Bar, went on a journey through Ghana to learn how Cocoa beans were first used in chocolate and... well... more boring history stuff until we got MORE CHOCOLATE and got to see the actual factory part. It was amazing how cool everything was, and how much I ate.
