The Swellers and that "Strangehawk" Business

Posted by - 12:00 PM on 01/05/12
Remember that post about Nick from The Swellers working on a solo project? Yeah. We got punked. POZ reached out to the band and got a statement. Now it's time to plot our revenge.
Message from the BandSome of you may have seen everything getting posted about my brother, Nick’s new band Strange Hawks. Things seem to be getting way out of hand. Why? Because not only is the band NOT REAL, but neither is the drama! Someone found the “band” on Nick’s facebook, got it posted to Absolutepunk so we got our friends involved (fake comments/tweets) in a huge joke. That’s how the internet works, it’s hilarious.

In REAL news, we’re doing our first U.S. co-headlining tour with our friends You Me At Six along with Twin Atlantic and We Are The Ocean. We made tickets only $10 or $12 and we’re playing LONG sets. Some shows are selling out so make sure you get tickets ASAP by heading to http://www.theswellers.com/tour

We have also started writing the next Swellers album! It’s sounding killer so far and we hope to be demoing in the next few months whenever we’re home.

Thank you for playing along. We’re extremely happy. And yes, we just pulled some Nine Inch Nails viral shit on you.

Obviously they did this to promote the tour. (I never got into this band. I've seen them live five times already and I've been unimpressed every time. I'm surprised they're still signed to FBR.)

Hahaha, that's awesome. Revenge sounds even more entertaining. We should brainstorm.

NIN's game was better! Do enjoy a ruse every once and a while though!

Funny dudes, as always. It was really hard to watch everyone freak out on Tumblr and not say it was a joke, haha.

Obviously, I can't wait for the new album.

I hate that so many bands have stopped coming to Utah on their own tours.
