In case you've been living under a rock these past few months, The Swellers released a fantastic new EP Running Out Of Places To Go in the fall. The band is also playing the Fusion Show's 5th Anniversary show on Saturday. So in celebration of that, we're collaborating with the band and Born & Bred Clothing to give away a killer prize pack - a handwritten lyric sheet to "Making Waves," the band's new EP Running Out of Places to Go, Born & Bred "B&Beanie," and a Born & Bred "Don't Tread on B&B T-Shirt." Pretty rad, right? So you probably want to know how you can win it. Just post your favorite song from Running Out Of Places To Go and why, and I'll pick a winner by the end of the day....

From The InterviewWe were in Rolling Stone. I thought that was cool for a bunch of dudes who put out a record without a label. That is pretty cool and made my parents real proud.

What happens when a bunch of Michigan punk rockers stay the night in a spooky house while on tour? That's the question Anto Boros (part-time documentarian/full-time bassist for The Swellers) asks when his band and friends spend a night in an unknown place. "Pretty Normal Activity" (featuring members of The Swellers, Into It. Over It. and Broadway Calls) is a film that will have you sleeping with two blankets and wanting to buy the band's latest EP Running Out Of Places To Go (do that here). You can watch the movie in the replies, but - beware! - it'll shake you to your very core!

The Swellers are recording a new EP.
From the InterviewAs far as our sound with the new EP, I’m sure a million bands say, “This is our most mature record to date.” Everybody says that and then they’ll go on to say, “Yeah, everybody says it’s their most mature record to date, but…” and it’s like, “Okay, man.” I’ll be the first to tell you: this is not our most mature record to date. It’s five songs that we wrote in our basement and it’s, like, the first time in a long time that we’ve been free and able to do what we want to do. We’re not thinking about it too hard, and we’re doing it exactly the way we would have 10 years ago when we started the band. [These songs] come from such a...

Today we are streaming the track "Red Lights" from The Swellers recent 7" release Vehicle City Blues. Sure, we know the vinyl was released already, but who doesn't mind a little bit of The Swellers during their day? The band has a couple more weeks left of tour before they head back into the studio to record a new album. Head to the band's AP.net profile and leave your thoughts in the replies.

The Early November recently took off on a new tour with The Wonder Years, The Swellers and Young Statues. A couple days ago, the vocalists of each of these groups - Ace Enders from TEN, Dan Campbell from TWY, Nick Diener from The Swellers, and Carmen Cirignano from Young Statues - took the time to record an acoustic cover of Semisonic's "Closing Time," which you can now watch in the replies. It's a fun cover, with all four vocalists singing to round out the song. A regular barbershop quartet, these guys. The tour continues on until June 9, and you can also see the remaining tour dates in the replies.

The Swellers discuss leaving Fueled by Ramen and the motivations behind it.
From the InterviewDefinitely a few months ago. We all started talking about what was best for us in general. I think a big part of it too was that we kind of realized that they would understand because they have these bands that are doing so well. And then a band from a world like ours. A DIY and I guess punk band being bunched with those other bands doesn’t really make any sense for them because of the way they promote. They have a surefire way of doing promotion for those bands. But when you put a band like us in it, it doesn’t really work. So one thing led to another. The little things added up. Not...

Band StatementRecently, The Swellers decided that it was time to part ways with Fueled By Ramen. We’ve had a good run with them and have a lot of appreciation and respect for everyone at the label. While we wish the staff and their bands the best of luck, we’ve come to the conclusion that being part of a major label just isn’t the right fit for us right now. We’re ready to continue developing who we are as a...

On Monday we're premiering the new video from The Swellers ... you knew that, right? Anyway, we reached out to the band to get a little bit of information about "behind the scenes" and the making of the new video.
Behind the VideoLet's rewind to our last UK headline tour with Broadway Calls and Into It. Over It. We were sitting around in a dressing room thinking about some ideas for a music video. I sat listening to the song "Inside My Head" over and over again until we started grasping some sort of concept we could run with. I told the guys a really rough idea, they kept adding on, and we had ourselves a video idea.

We hit up our friend Mitch Wojcik who did the artwork/layout for our...
