The Swellers Announce “Call It A Night” Tour

Michigan-based punk band The Swellers have released the dates for their “Call It a Night” tour, following the announcement earlier this year that they would be “retiring”. Unlike most hiatus announcements, this news came with more of a feeling of finality, as the band announced via twitter on July 28 “we’re just… retiring. We are just done, and it was good”. The Swellers stated that these will be the last shows they play in these cities, which so far includes Buffalo, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland and Detroit. Check out the band’s music video for “The Best I Ever Had” and kick your week off right with this anthemic, nostalgic look back at the happiest memories the band’s lyricist has experienced. Check out the dates and cities below to see if The Swellers will be making their way to your hometown; the band will be adding more dates in the coming weeks, so no need to fret if your city isn’t listed!
