New Drummer: We have a new drummer in place and we're back in business as usual. Our first gig with the very iinappropriately named Wisey will be at Westgate 23 in Heckmondwike on Friday 25 January.

The Band

The Swindells is a DIY Punk Rock outfit from Leeds.

The band formed in 2008 and has played on the bill with the likes of: The Damned, Angelic Upstarts, UK Subs, Sham 69, Slaugthter & the Dogs, Chelsea & loads of other great bands who should be bigger than they are.

The Swindells debut album, This Is Leeds, was released on their own White Rose label in 2010. The self financed 10-track CD sold out quickly and has not been repressed since - Ebay's your best bet for now (won't cost a lot, that's for sure!)


The Swindells second self-financed album, Oaf Rock, came out in summer 2015 - loaded with 13 tracks of old school UK punk rock, the CD is available to buy from the band at gigs or by mail order from the shop page.
