The Swellers have announced the first leg of their final tour.
Jason Tate on 08/25/14 - 10:14 AM
Head to Vice's Noisey to read drummer Jonathan Diener discussing the career and end of The Swellers.
Maybe we missed our big shot by not cashing in at the right time. Maybe we could have set our artistic pride aside and written the same record over and over again. Maybe we released too much music. Maybe we shouldn’t have been so accessible to our fan base. Maybe we could have picked a different record label or a different manager or changed our band name a few years in. You can question yourself forever, but it won’t change a thing. I like the choices we made. I like that we took risks and kept it real.

BraidedVeins (members of The Swellers, Kid Brother Collective, Empty Orchestra) will record their debut LP in late August with Marc Hudson (Taking Back Sunday, Saves The Day, others). The band's first EP can be downloaded for free.

The Swellers are taking a stand against bands having to sell tickets to play shows.
We've been a band for almost twelve years, played on five continents and never had to sell tickets to play a show. You don't either.

The Swellers' drummer Jonathan Diener is starting a new project this summer.
Looking to start some new music projects this summer. One with me playing bass/maybe singing and other drumming. Should be interesting.

Today marks the 11th anniversary of The Swellers being a band. Drummer Jono Diener wrote about the occasion in his blog. He's also our featured guest on this week's upcoming AbsolutePunk Podcast, so stay tuned for that.
We were never a hype band or blew up, but we’ve been slowly climbing up for years. We’re still very much here. If anything it’s time to take another swing at things. 8 months at home was too much for me. I don’t think I can do that again, or at least not for a while. Maybe we’ve been around a long time but it doesn’t mean we’re close to being done. I think we’re better than ever. We just need someone to listen and fight for us.
