Swingin’ Utters – Poorly Formed out Feb. 19th

As promised, we’ll be releasing the new Swingin’ Utters full length in early 2013! Get ready to redefine just who the Swingin’ Utters are, since they’re not a band who’s ever made the same record twice. And while the tones and arrangements set this record apart from their recent work, there’s still plenty of piss ‘n’ vinegar along with all the other hallmarks of a great Swingin’ Utters record: catchy melodies, diverse instrumentation, and intelligent, heartfelt lyrics. If you haven’t picked up their latest 7”, The Librarians Are Hiding Something, do so now as the title track is the lead song off Poorly Formed, and you can hear it by heading over to our media player. Read below as Darius describes just what went into this new record:

“Our new record was written pretty quickly, more so than anything we’ve done in the past. One of the reasons, I think, was that Jack had several songs in various stages of completeness, but once he decided to give Johnny the music, and have Johnny write the lyrics and vocal melody to his instrumentation, things started to fly… So there are several of these Johnny/Jack songs on the record (which marks the first songs Jack’s written with us). In that way, it was a brand new writing process for us, so it was pretty exciting, and we’re really happy with the way all of these songs came out in the end. Mixing with Chris Dugan was an added bonus, and we really hope we can work with him again! We’ll be on the west coast in March, as well as a few NoCal record release shows in late February. We’re planning on hitting everywhere else in the US (and Canada too!) by the end of the summer. We’re going to Australia with Frank Turner and the Dropkick Murphys for a few days in early April (our first time on that continent!), and heading to Europe in July. Hopefully Japan sometime in the fall.”
