Swollen Members Revisit Their Early Days In New Video For Almost Famous



written by

Vancouver based Swollen Members continue to roll out new material from their new album “Beautiful Death Machine”, and have released their video for the track “Almost Famous” online

“Beautiful Death Machine” lands in stores on March 19th via Suburban Noize/Battle Axe Records and is available for pre-order.

“Our concept for ‘Almost Famous’ was really quite simple yet very effective. We shot at my favorite local neighborhood pub with each of us playing a role in the restaurant. We show the early days when we were struggling to solidify our music career while still grinding through a 9-5,” said Prevail. “I’m really proud of the concept and the final product looks like a short film.”

To create their latest opus, “Beautiful Death Machine”, Swollen Members regrouped with a revitalized energy and a vision to record an album that strengthens the group’s musical legacy. Armed with their signature brand of dark, sinister, spellbinding hip-hop, Swollen Members emerged with an album that is aggressive, confident and commands listeners attention with its in-your-face attitude.

Swollen Members will embark on a headlining tour across Canada in March and are set to perform at this year’s Paid Dues Independent Hip-Hop Festival 2013 on March 30, 2013 at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA. The Vancouver based trio joins an already stellar line-up that includes headliners Black Hippy, Macklemore, along with Talib Kweli, Tech N9ne, Scarface, Immortal Technique, Hopsin, Joey Badass, Vinnie Paz & Ill Bill, and many others.

Madchild from Swollen Members will be touring this summer in support of his solo album on the Vans Warped Tour along with Goldfinger, Forever the Sickest Kids, Big Chocolate, The Black Dahlia Murder, Mac Lethal, and MC Lars.
