“This song is for anyone who’s been told they’re not good enough, or worse yet, those who have been ignored completely,” says singer Nick Diener of the new song.  “Big Hearts” is the singalong on this record.  It was written with the same feeling as “The Best I Ever Had”, but it’s more of an anthem and not so much a specific story. We’re one of those bands that is lucky enough to have our fans grow with us.  If you know, you know.  You could call it our comeback song, but don’t call it a comeback, we’ve been here for years.  And that riff, tho!”


The release of “Big Hearts” comes right on the heels of The Swellers brand new video for “High/Low,” and follows the recent premieres for their songs “Should” and “Becoming Self-Aware,” which are all featured on the band’s long-awaited, highly anticipated fourth studio album, The Light Under Closed Doors.


The Swellers are also gearing up for the kickoff of “The Light Under Closed Doors Tour,” that will start on October 18th in Chicago and culminate on November 29th in Grand Rapids.  The tour will include performances at  clubs, house parties, pizza parlors, skate rinks and other assorted venues across the U.S.; a rare chance to catch the band live in an intimate setting.
