Swearin’ recently signed to Wichita Recordings. The band first grabbed the labels attention with their much acclaimed self-titled debut LP which was released on Salinas Records in the US. Swearin’s self-titled album will get its first official release in Europe on 21 October and will be followed by a brand new album later this year.
The band is fronted by Allison Crutchfield, twin sister of Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield (they previously played together in P.S. Eliot) and also features Waxahatchee’s drummer Keith Spencer on bass along with Keith Gilbride (guitar) and Jeff Bolt (drums). You can listen to album track Kenosha here.
Swearin’ have also announced their first European tour dates supporting Waxahatchee in October. These dates follow a run of shows in the US in September supporting Kathleen Hanna’s new band, The Julie Ruin.
