The Swellers announce B-Sides and Rarities

 The Swellers have surprised fans today with the announcement and release of a special collection of unreleased music titled B-Sides and Rarities. The record is currently available for stream and purchase at the band’s Bandcamp page.

“To us, these tracks are priceless. Some of them show our earliest efforts in songwriting while others show the process it took to make our records what they are today,” says the band’s guitarist/vocalist Nick Diener. “We never thought some of these strange demos would ever see the light of day, but we had so much fun opening up the vault and seeing what was in there. We included some never-before-heard unreleased songs, acoustic jams, and basement-style early versions of some of our favorite tunes.”

“To us, they’re priceless, but we wanted you to have them. 5 bucks gets you 17 tracks, but you have the option to pay more if you want to really help the Swell Dogs out,” Diener adds. “If you got tax money back, this is a great place to spend it, because as a band, we just PAY a buttload of taxes at the end of the year instead of getting anything back. Plane tickets to the UK, paying back our awesome label No Sleep records, compensating for a Brazilian promoter NOT paying us…lots of setbacks. We are currently self-managed, and trying hard to make sure we can keep touring and having fun.”
