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.

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...

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 shouldnít 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 wonít change a thing. I like the choices we made. I like that we took risks and kept it real.

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.

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 weíve been slowly climbing up for years. Weíre still very much here. If anything itís time to take another swing at things. 8 months at home was too much for me. I donít think I can do that again, or at least not for a while. Maybe weíve been around a long time but it doesnít mean weíre close to being done. I think weíre better than ever. We just need someone to listen and fight for us.
