Swil is very proud to announce the additions of two new members, Danny First on Drums and Joshua Dunagan on Bass. This is the most promising group of musicians Swil has ever had. Progress is rapid and Swil will be looking to start booking shows within 4-6 weeks, so please keep us in mind. :) We hope to have some recordings of new material up soon so stay tuned!!!
Swil is in need of a bass player to get the ball rolling again.
We are in our 30's-early 40's, with a kick ass practice studio and good gear. We write a variety of rock styles from punk to pop to hard rock and we are looking for that right bass player who knows how to hold down the groove and fill the void without taking over, yet adding the fluff in short bursts when needed. We are a work hard, play hard band that drinks a few beers and smokes out, but not much else. Though priority one is to have fun, even when it feels like work sometimes, we take our music very serious and are anxious to get together with that right person a few nights a week and get this train back on the tracks. We are day time workers, so practice evenings and weekends, with the exception of Tuesday nights.
You can check out some of our music, though we are anxious to start writing new music once we get a few songs down to get us started.

We are a fairly democratic band, but we do know that there are certain things we are looking for, one being the willingness to perfect the songs we write. This can take some time, as parts are broken down and rehearsed to get cohesion. We love to jam, but when it comes to writing songs, you must be willing to work together to polish parts and sync things up and be able to exert patience in this process.
We have contacts with other good bands can start lining up shows locally as soon as we are ready, as well as a press kit so we can take the next step in festival submissions and opening up for national acts.
There is gear for you to play out of in the studio, but you must also have your own gear and transportation...In other words be stable. :)
If this sounds like something that interests you lets set up a time and jam and see how it goes. Worst case we have a good time for a night and move on. Best case we click and go from there. :) If not, thanks for the read and we wish you the best of luck. It isn't easy finding the right fit. :)
Okay. Demo is up, pics are in the mail to be posted soon. Swil is now actively looking for like bands to put on quality shows with in the metro area to start, then we will branch out further into the nw. If you know of, or are in a band you think would be a good fit, we would love to hear from you!!! Get your azzes ready to rock!!!!
Swil is very proud and excited to announce that Holmes, a referral from our friends SOM (www.reverbnation.com/shotofmercury), will be filling the empty drummer position! Holmes is a great, in the pocket, drummer that should help us take it to the next level!!! Check out his pics and send him a comment! Also be sure to check back soon as we will be looking to book shows this summer.
Unfortunately, Bill has decided to part ways with Swil. We wish Bill the best in his endeavors and he will always be considered family. Swil is on the hunt for a new drummer. We welcome all inquiries regarding the position, so if you are interested or know a drummer that you think might be interested, please contact us and/or pass on the word. :) With the right drummer, we are confident we will be gig ready in 4-8 weeks. As always, thanks for reading and thanks for the support!!!
Okay Folks, Swil is now ready to start booking shows!! We are interested in both clubs and house parties, as we are a very loud and rowdy bunch. ;) We are looking for other bands to play shows with, so if you think we would be a decent fit, contact us with some info and we will go from there. Peace and rock on!!!!
Okay folks, let us know what you think about our tw new originals we have posted. We are still on the hunt for a bass player. If you know any you think would fit, send em over!!!1:) For now, Orion is recording the bass lines. Thanks for the support!!!!
Okay folks, first new song is up. A quick and easy cover of a cover, but we looooove the energy. Let us know what you think of our first rough draft in 7 years!
Okay folks, it is official. Swil has reunited and has new music on the horizon as soon as we can find a replacement for the bassist, Finguz, who has moved on in his life. Finguz will always be thought of as family, being a founding member and a part of the puzzle that made Swil click.
So the hunt is on... ads are out. We are actively seeking a bass player and hope to be playing some new music out and about this coming summer. If you play bass and are interested, contact Orion @ email@example.com
Stay tuned for more news and music coming soon!
