SWOLLEN MEMBERS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM “BRAND NEW DAY” & NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINING TOUR
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
SWOLLEN MEMBERS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM “BRAND NEW DAY” & NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINING TOUR WITH MADCHILD, SLAINE FROM LA COKA NOSTRA, AND SUPREME VILLAIN
Swollen Members have set "Brand New Day" as the title of their upcoming ninth studio album, which is slated for a summer release though the group's newly re-launched label Battleaxe Records. The group will hit the road in support of the album on a North American headlining tour that kicks off on April 23rd in their hometown of Vancouver, BC with support from Madchild, Slaine from La Coka Nostra, and Supreme Villain.
"With 'Brand New Day', Swollen Members have written a powerful new chapter in our history. We have all become forward thinkers and our level of expression has benefited," said Prevail. "This album is a landmark for us in that it doesn't feature any guests. Our belief system has been renewed and we agreed that between the amazing production and the complexity of the lyrical value, we could let 'Brand New Day' speak for itself."
Since re-grouping in 2009 after a four year hiatus, Swollen Members have been creatively revitalized and their profile in the hip-hop scene has skyrocketed. The group’s independent grind is unrelenting as they have released three full length studio albums, a greatest hits collection, and followed up their critically acclaimed 'Monsters In The Closet' album with a sequel. During that same time, Madchild and Prevail have both launched solo efforts while they toured the globe with the likes of Tech N9ne, La Coka Nostra, The Grouch & Eligh, the Vans Warped Tour, and Alchemist and Evidence's new hip-hop group Step Brothers.
Swollen Members continue to gain strength and add to their musical legacy. Their fan base of fanatical Battle Axe Warriors continues to grow and Swollen Members continue to be one the most relevant groups in hip-hop today.
