Introducing To You: SWMRS

Introducing to you SWMRS, pronounced ‘swimmers’. SWMRS is an American punk rock band formed in Oakland, California. The band started in 2004 by Cole Becker and Joey Armstrong, with Cole’s brother Max joining only a few weeks later on. However, their first EP was released in 2009.

The band is musically influenced by The Ramones and the Beach Boys, creating their own brand of rock. Throughout 2008 and 2010 the band released EP’s, they released their first album Don’t Be A Dick in 2011 and their second Lost At Seventeen in 2013.

The band took the studio last year and recorded their third album Drive North which was released on February 16th 2016. It is the first album to feature bassist Seb Mueller and guitarist Max Becker. Drive North happens to be the bands’ first studio recorded album, as well as their second overall release with the name SWMRS. The prior name of the band was Emily’s Army.

Both albums have been produced by none other than Billie Joe Armstrong, drummer, Joey Armstrong’s father. You may recognise the name from popular pop punk band, Green Day.

The band has been touring with artists such as The Frights and The Aquadolls. Make sure to catch their amazing, music and find them on social media!
