The Swellers is an American punk band from Flint, Michigan, that stronghold of US deprivation caused by a failing car industry. What better environment for such a band to form into and thrive upon? Since 2002, the band have played as far and wide as possible and have ended up on tour with the likes of Paramore, Less Than Jake, Motion City Soundtrack and on the Vans Warped Tour. Following their last album on Fueled By Ramen - their fourth, entitled Good For Me - the band broke free of label blunders and misunderstandings. Xtra Mile re-released their Running Out of Places To Go EP on vinyl and digitally in the UK in 2013. It's The Swellers at their most relaxed and comfortable, one that allowed them to reset and recharge, but still sound as potent as ever. They released fifth album The Light Under Closed Doors in late 2013.
