This event is all ages
From the perpetually down-on-its-luck, blue collar, rustbelt factory town of Flint, Michigan, comes new Fueled By Ramen signees The Swellers, a punk band that knows a thing or two about making hard, no-nonsense, but infinitely catchy music.
Following in the footsteps of other hard- Flintites who've made their name on the world stage—film provocateur Michael Moore, '70s hard rock pioneers Grand Funk Railroad, '80s grindcore/death-metal pioneers Repulsion, and the late rapper M.C. Breed—The Swellers have forged a hard-edged, yet accessible style of punk over the better part of a decade, the last three of which have been spent touring non-stop with the likes of Less Than Jake, Set Your Goals, Four Year Strong, A Wilhelm Scream and Streetlight Manifesto, among numerous others.
The Moms are a dynamic power trio from New Jersey who pride themselves on a hook-laden sound and an energetic live set. With what started as sporadic shows in New Brunswick basements, The Moms have now committed to a nation-wide touring schedule. Joey Nester (Guitar/vocals) comments, "We play shows coast to coast in bars and basements, yelling satirical lyrics to anybody willing to listen."
The Moms recorded their first four song EP, "Viva!" in December of 2011 at Silent Owl Studios with John Collura of The Ataris. The record was later released on Panic State Records on 7" Vinyl. Jon Stolpe(Bass/Vocals) states, "The tracks are a couple of the original tunes we wrote in Joeys Bedroom during the 2011 year. We were all dying to groove but in a nasty way and Viva! is the product of it."
The much anticipated full length record "Keep Buying American" can be expected in October of 2013 through Paper + Plastick with a full national tour to support it. Donny Saraceno (Drums) on the record, "The record is our platform to help you experience what The Moms are all about. There is nothing else like it, but it IS an American Rock and Roll album."
