THE SWELLERS have announced that they have been dropped from Fueled By Ramen Records, who released the band’s last two albums.
The band explains:
We’ve had a good run with them and have a lot of appreciation and respect for everyone at the label. While we wish the staff and their bands the best of luck, we’ve come to the conclusion that being part of a major label just isn’t the right fit for us right now. On May 29th, we’re releasing a 7″ of two songs that weren’t on [our last album. They’re some of our fastest, most aggressive songs we’ve made to date. The 7″ title came from the song “Vehicle City Blues,” which we wrote about the recent effects of a serial killer in Flint, MI. We’re planning on releasing an EP on our own later this year before signing with a new label for an album sometime in 2013.
