We're stoked to be opening for Slaughter and the Dogs at the Brudenell Social Club, Leeds on Saturday 18 February 2017. Get your tickets here.

The next gig is at the Packhorse, Woodhouse Lane, Leeds. This a free gig on Saturday 24 September (Chris Jackson's Birthday Bash!) Turn up, get pissed, have a good time, then fuck-off back home in peace and love!

After that, it's back to the Brudenell for the 2016 edition of Leeds Punk Rock Xmas, with Johnny Moped, XSLF, Cyanide Pills, Geoffrey OI!Cott and loads more (thanks to Jase, Paul & the rest of the OI!Cotts!)....Get tickets here.

The studio is booked for album number three; so we'll be experimenting with a few new tunes at these gigs before starting recording in mid-October.

Catch you soon.

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, 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.


Inspired by everything from Stiff Little Fingers and Bad Religion to The Damned and Eric Burdon, Swindells songs rarely break the three minute barrier - it's loud Punk Rock; what more can you say. The Swindells have no big ambition nor agenda & don’t expect to change anyone’s world. We just wanna have fun trying!
