SWMRS have released their second album, ‘Berkeley’s On Fire’.
The follow-up to 2015’s ‘Drive North’ is out today, Friday 15th February, via Fueled By Ramen, and will be accompanied by a UK tour in March.
“When we were writing these songs we were very conscious of our role in creating a space for people to escape from the nonstop negative media cycle,” says co-frontman Cole Becker.
“It’s a strange time to be young; our generation knows the duality of feeling like an unstoppable force for change in one moment and a powerless wreck in the next. We wanted these songs to document that feeling that we’ve observed closely in ourselves and in the people we’ve shared our music with over the past three years.”
