THE SWELLERS ANNOUNCE/RELEASE ‘B-SIDES AND RARITIES” RECORD
April 15, 2014 – Los Angeles, CA – Pop-punk band The Swellers has surprised fans today with the announcement and release of a special collection of unreleased music titled B-Sides and Rarities. The record is currently available for stream and purchase at the band’s Bandcamp page.
Stream and purchase B-Sides and Rarities now at http://theswellers.bandcamp.com.
The Swellers collected the unreleased tracks over the course of their decade long career. Some are early versions of songs fans have come to love, some are really rough versions that never left the studio. All are a must have for any fan of the band!
“To us, these tracks are priceless. Some of them show our earliest efforts in songwriting while others show the process it took to make our records what they are today,” says the band’s guitarist/vocalist Nick Diener. “We never thought some of these strange demos would ever see the light of day, but we had so much fun opening up the vault and seeing what was in there. We included some never-before-heard unreleased songs, acoustic jams, and basement-style early versions of some of our favorite tunes.”
“To us, they're priceless, but we wanted you to have them. 5 bucks gets you 17 tracks, but you have the option to pay more if you want to really help the Swell Dogs out,” Diener adds. “If you got tax money back, this is a great place to spend it, because as a band, we just PAY a buttload of taxes at the end of the year instead of getting anything back. Plane tickets to the UK, paying back our awesome label No Sleep records, compensating for a Brazilian promoter NOT paying us…lots of setbacks. We are currently self-managed, and trying hard to make sure we can keep touring and having fun.”
The Swellers’ fourth studio album and latest release, The Light Under Closed Doors, was produced by the band and recorded by Marc Hudson (Saves the Day, Taking Back Sunday) at Rancho Recordo in Fenton, MI and with Mark Michalik (Into It. Over It., Fireworks) in Chicago, IL. The album features ten massive punk rock anthems including “Got Social,” “Big Hearts,” “High/Low,” “Should” and “Becoming Self-Aware.” The record is available for stream and purchase from No Sleep Records.
