    We've spent a couple of weeks so far on our co-headlining tour across the country with You Me At Six, and it's been a blast. We knew going into it that the musical/stylistic differences between all the bands were going to make this a pretty unique show, and that lots of different types of music fans would be showing up, which is great! [There’s] lots of new music for everyone to sample. Seems to be working well.

    Now, the Swellers are a punk rock band. Plain and simple. We get in the van nine months out of the year to play and sweat our asses off, no matter what. We've been doing this for years and are a pretty unstoppable machine when it comes to getting onstage and then getting to the next show. It is apparent on this tour, however, that many of these kids in the crowd are very new to what we do, which has proven to be dangerous at times. I wanted to take a second to recap some basic safety guidelines that new show-goers should take into consideration when coming to a show. I might even throw in some etiquette/pet peeves in there as well. A lot of this will be common sense to a lot of you, but it's awesome to be able to welcome new people into this thing we're all a part of called Punk Rock.
