Tip of the Day: Get To Know These Guys.

Posted by - 02:53 AM on 07/20/09
Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall of a van that encapsulates The Swellers while on the road? You're in luck, because the guys just posted a new tour video you need to watch. The band also posted lyrics to "Welcome Back Riders," which will be released on 7" vinyl very soon.

You might be right to a certain extent--unfortunately--but I can definitely see fans of Fall Out Boy or Paramore getting into these guys. It's upbeat and melodic, y'know?

Plus they have the added advantage of sounding like bands kids "used to listen to." The "sound" that people say "wish still existed." Which I'll never understand. It never went anywhere...

They remind me of the type of bands that FBR first started signing, back before even FOB joined the squad.
