HIGHLAND PARK EBELL CLUB
HIGHLAND PARK, CA
02 AUGUST, 2018a night to remember at the Center For the Arts in Eagle Rock, and since then they put the band to rest, Allison Crutchfield released a solo EP and a full-length album on Merge Records, and suddenly, we're back in business with Swearin', not only touring, but with a brand new LP Fall Into The Sun, due out October 5th.
Swearin' wasn't shy with the new stuff, kicking off with an unheard tune, and peppering the set with others, including the single "Grow Into A Ghost". "Kenosha" appearing early in the set boded well, and from there it moved from high point to higher, including a towering "Here To Hear", and ended with a raucous "Movie Star". The core trio of Allison Crutchfield, Kyle Gilbride, and Jeff Bolt regrouped for a string of East Coast shows in April, borrowing All Dogs bassist Amanda Bartley to fill out the lineup. Combining bittersweet ballads and 'blowing the doors off power', Swearin' keeps you on the hook, and by the end, i was a sweaty, ecstatic mess.
