The Swellers set from the recent Fueled By Ramen 15 Year Anniversary show with Paramore was featured on, check out the video.


Contact a publicist, arrange an interview, then have a record company suit call to establish a connection with the talent’s phone.

A New York City call from a guy at Atlantic Records connected me to a punk band’s house in Flint.

Flint? It’s where “you can live much cheaper, and still live happy,” said Jonathan Diener, drummer for The Swellers.

Nice picture, must be a pretty recent photo?



“Nothing More To Me” is set during the 1953 tornado that devastated Flint, Michigan. The focus of the song, however, is that of a relationship gone sour and the couple trying to mend things during such a disaster, as if the storm is almost a second nuisance. With times as tough as they are now, it’s just crazy that people have to deal with their houses being torn apart on top of everything else going on. The timing of us releasing/recording this song is very eerie, but hopefully it’s a reminder that things just got a lot tougher for all of us and people need your help.
