Fresh off the Vans Warped tour, Michigan based band, The Swellers, have been working their asses off over the past eight years and proving that hard work does pay off.

Recently signing to Fueled By Ramen, The Swellers are currently on tour throughout the United States with Fireworks, Transit, and Man Overboard. I say you must…. MUST.. check these guys out live. I first witnessed their show in Toronto when they came through with Paramore and then again at Warped Tour. I was blown away. Its been years since I’ve had that much fun at a show. Thank you for making me feel sixteen again. All worries out the window.

For all tour dates and music, check out their myspace:

Now on to the contest.
