Baggage's (ex-The Swellers) debut EP, Cheaper Than Therapy, is avaialbe for pay-what-you-want on Bandcamp.
Any of the money raised from the first two months will fund the rebuilding of my friend Ron Luczak's house that was destroyed by a fire. His house is also the album artwork for this release. With all of the terrible things going on in Flint, Michigan I feel that it's time to start giving back one project at a time.

Jonathan Diener, interviewed by Safer Scene:
Iíve toured for close to a decade and Iíve definitely seen different types of harassment and discrimination over the years. Sometimes itís a security guard thinking a female member of a band is trying to sneak into the show or is just someoneís girlfriend, which happens often unfortunately. Iíve seen a lot of people get into arguments and physical altercations. Whether itís the venue staff and a band, fans with each other, band members with each other or any variation of the three, Iíve seen it go down.

Our good friend Jonathan Diener (formerly of The Swellers) has announced his new full-time band (and goes from drummer to frontman for the first time). Baggage will be releasing new music in September, but for now a teaser can be found in the replies.

Hit the replies to watch a good quality video of The Swellers' final set at Groezrock.

Jonathan Diener, writing for Nothing Original:
I am the guy standing in the back of the crowd. Iím most likely crossing my arms and not singing along. Even in a situation when thereís a circle pit, stage diving or crowd surfing, Iím most likely not participating. When the singer of the band shouts out to the show-goers for a wall of death or to clap along, I donít indulgethem. If youíre having a good time up front and look back to see me standing there, you probably think Iím trying to be cool. You probably think Iím not enjoying myself. If you assume those things, youíre in the wrong. I couldnít be cool even if I tried and Iím probably having a great time. If thatís the case, then why...
