Having just spent the last month on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour, Fueled By Ramen road warriors The Swellers hit the highway once again. The Flint, MI-based band will join Fireworks alongside Man Overboard and Transit this month on tour. Kicking off August 12th in Traverse City, MI, the tour will crisscross the county including Canada, wrapping on October 1st in Detroit. In addition, The Swellers will be a part of this fall’s Riot Fest on October 9th in Chicago. (Full dates below)

The Swellers joined Fueled By Ramen just over a year ago and have proven themselves to be an aggressive and hard-working live act. The band has been on the road nearly non-stop over the last four years, touring alongside the likes of Less Than Jake, Motion City Soundtrack, and labelmates Paramore. The Swellers also recently visited Europe for a handful of festival shows this past spring, including the Give It A Name Festival in Munich, Milan, and Vienna, as well as the Groezrock Festival in Belgium.

“UPS AND DOWNSIZING,” The Swellers’ Fueled By Ramen debut, was named one of the best albums of 2009 by both Absolute Punk and Punk News. “The Swellers have topped their Everest and written an album that might just be the perfect balance of melodic & pop punk since [Green Day’s] Dookie,” gushed Absolute Punk, while Punk News raved it’s “without a doubt, the best thing FBR has released since the days when the Stereo, Jimmy Eat World and the Impossibles dominated the label’s landscape.”
