On the 3rd May 2008, after thirteen years away, all four original members of The Sway, David Casson (Vocals/Guitar), Jim Kook (Guitar), Paul Hogan (Bass) & Sean Kelly (Drums) ventured into the rehearsal studio to plot their return. David Casson, having penned some new tunes, initially to be a solo project, decided, after being approached to play The East Barnet Music Festival, to contact his former bandmates about playing his new songs live and it was agreed and the set would include the new tunes and some old Sway favorites. The band were joined by keyboard player Matt Smith
The gig was on Saturday 5th July 2008. The Sway had returned big time.....................or so it was thought but this time they dropped off the radar, even more quickly than they had shown back up on it!
Having caught the bug of performing together once again, The Sway went off to prepare the songs, for what would finally be their debut album. Due to various serious personal issues that do not need to be dug over in public, the process has taken a lot longer than anticipated but here we are in 2011 and the album is ready for public consumption. It is a testement to a band who have stood the test of time and remained friends through thick and thin.
They are back, older, wiser and ultimately better than ever!
Ladies and gentlemen. Boys and girls.
The Sway's, 'When Worlds Collide......'
