The Swaggerlies release thier new album on Friday, and we are delighted to have their new video “Pretty Good At Being Bad”, right here!
The band tell us: “This is a song about getting the most amount of fun out of your bad decisions. Our filmmaker friend, Lee Fleming at Passionate Apathy Entertainment put this (and all of our videos) together.”
The Swaggerlies play loud, unabashed, punky rock’n’roll! With a sound that has never, and will never, go out of style, They’re are all about having fun on their upcoming album The Last of The One and Onlys.
Formed in 2018 by Earle Thunders (GUNS OF NEVADA) and Ron “Rontrose” Heathman (SUPERSUCKERS), with bass player Jeromy Leonard (BIGTOP) and drummer Rob Olsen added to complete the lineup, the band’s first ever recording was a Christmas track: “All I Want for Christmas (Is To Be Left Alone)”.
In January 2020 the band embarked on a short tour to Portland, Reno and San Francisco and established themselves as a must-see live act. Enter COVID 19 and all shows were shut down and the band, like the rest of the world, sheltered in place and waited for the storm to pass.
Sadly, in August 2020, founding member, friend and legendary guitar player, Rontrose passed away. After digesting this huge loss, THE SWAGGERLIES decided to soldier on and complete the in progress album as he wished and dedicate it to him.
The band welcomed “Captain” Ron Stohr (JILLY RIZZO, SWEDISH LEGAL SYSTEM) to play lead guitar and mastered by the great Jack Endino, The Last of the One and Onlys was complete.
The Last of the One and Onlys will be hitting hard on December 3, 2021. Get ready to slam dance your way through winter with this instant classic!
