It looks like The Swellers are planning a US headlining tour.

EDIT: Jonathan clears up the confusion below.
InfoWe are not planning a headlining tour. I was just really tired and misread a comment on our band's facebook page. We are sorting a BUNCH of tours little by little and trying to get around the globe in 2011. We'll be in the UK in April and as we get dates for any other tour or event they'll always be on www.theswellers.com. I usually respond to people on our facebook (in the future, with valid info) so add us www.facebook.com/theswellers
