SWMRS re-release LP on Fueled By Ramen

SWMRS to re-release LP 'Drive North' on Fueled By Ramen.

SWMRS today announced that Fueled By Ramen will re-release their debut album Drive North. Fueled By Ramen signed the band earlier this Fall. The re-released version of the album includes re-mastered versions of the original release’s 12 tracks and new songs “Palm Trees” and “Lose It”. Produced by FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper, Drive North also features the band’s debut single “Miley” Album opener, “Harry Dean” is an abridged version of a previously 17-minute epic the band originally recorded to soundtrack Saint Laurent Paris’s Spring/Summer 2016 presentation, earning them praise from fashion publications like WWD and Interview Magazine.

This morning, the band shared a music video for their new single “Palm Trees”, directed by singer/guitarist Cole Becker. Describing the video, Becker offered, “‘Palm Trees’ explores the classic narrative of an artist going to Hollywood and having their hopes and dreams crushed by a system that takes advantage of the little guy. Our music videos are typically more fun and colorful, but we wanted to do something a little darker to convey the manipulator/manipulated dynamic in the song. It’s an interesting juxtaposition, given our recent signing to Fueled By Ramen. Fear of being exploited was what drove us to initially self-release our record, but the label is the gold standard for the future of artist-centric business practices. We’re really lucky to have found a home with people who support us understand the importance of our creative vision.”
