"The Few, the Proud, The Swellers."

Posted by: Drew Beringer (06/24/13)
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.

This band means so much to me. They've definitely had a crazy ride the past 11 years but I feel like they're exactly where they should be right now. They should get to where they're supposed to be soon!

Here's to 11 more years

This band means more to me than anything in the world. I wouldn't be where I am, or who I am, without them. I can't wait to be along for the next however many years of the ride.

Nothing bummed me out more than seeing The Swellers play to like 30 kids in Chicago a year or two. Band should be much bigger than they are.

Keep making good music and I'll keep buying it.

That's insane that they've been around for that long. I guess I just kind of assumed they were newer because I saw them open for Fireworks / Transit / Man Overboard maybe four years ago to about 10 people.

I remember seeing them on Warped Tour 2 years ago and honestly being shocked that they were on the Ernie Ball Stage as opposed to a bigger one. Hands down one of THE BEST live bands I have ever seen.

A band that essentially never grows in size and somehow just holds onto the edge.
