Switches on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight and Announce Summer Tour Dates with Be Your Own Pet, She Wants Revenge and The Virgins

“In light of all the mild-mannered Coldplay knockoffs of the last few years, it’s easy to forget that British rockers used to be cocky young things, happy to bang out shout-along choruses filled with drug references. Switches remember; their debut LP sounds as if it were written with soccer stadiums in mind, complete with chirpy harmonies and hooks…” – BLENDER


Tune into Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, April 10, to watch Switches perform “Drama Queen” off their recently released debut album “Lay Down the Law”. And if you just can’t wait to see a little bit of drama, check out their battle royale of a music video.

“Switches justify their cockiness with talent, excelling in the feisty hooks and high-pitched oo-oo-oos that hark back to the glam era at its best. If you’ve hoped for a missing link between T. Rex and the Killers (and hoped the balance would tilt toward the former), swaggering salvation is at hand.” – Entertainment Weekly, A-

“Tunes like “Drama Queen” and “Lay Down the Law” have enough hooks and sleaze-rock muscle to deserve to find their way to mainstream American rock radio.” – Boston Herald



“Combining foot-stomping drums and bass with tight vocals and sharp guitar riffs, Switches are as cocksure as their pop peers.”- Spin

Switches are lighting up the American music scene and we just can’t get enough of their Switches’ swagger, so due to popular demand the lads are back touring stateside this May and June as part of the Nylon Summer Music Tour with Be Your Own Pet, She Wants Revenge and The Virgins, so don’t miss out on the tour everyone will talking about this summer.

“Focusing on material from their upcoming debut album, there’s one thing Switches proved for sure on Saturday night: their music is entirely and utterly danceable—even the frat boys were movin’. Switches make highly-refined rock music—rock music that makes good use of a thumping disco rhythm section. Their music mobilizes people, and in the end listeners are left with no other choice but to bite their lips, get up and dance!” – Filter

“Switches…dedicated their suddenly ubiquitous…”Drama Queen” to the many loony ladies of La-La Land that allegedly inspired it. And the ladies (and gentlemen) in attendance reacted in a suitably loony manner” – NME

“[Switches] brightest spot came with “Lay Down the Law,” the namesake single to their soon to be released album, which seemed to amplify the energy of the crowd, measured in tween scream decibels.” – BlackBook
