Unfortunately, SWB took a bench seat for the Spring Battle of the bands because not all of us could make the mandatory meeting two days before April Vacation. We were truly sad by this, but at the same time happy that we didn't have to defend our bullshit title and could retire ontop. ha.
-January 9th 2006
We worked..."hard" in between April and January to finally finish of our long awaited first album. Most of the work was done during Christmas break from college. On January 9th we headlined our own CD Release Show at the Living Room in Providence Rhode Island. The album is called "4 Years Running" and is still available by contacting a band member and having them grab you a copy, not sold in stores. Thanks to all who came to the show and support our music. Who knows where SWB is headed now, but keep supporting and check out B-Tru and his solo stuff on his myspace.
Yes we've played 6 shows live. About 4 of which have been held at North Kingstown High School in one way or another. Our most special moment would have to be coming in 1st Place Overall in the NKHS Battle of the Bands on November 19, 2004. We've also had a great time playing in Providence. We played at AS220 in January of '05 and The Living Room in January of '06.
We've been getting big on Aesop Rock and the Wu-Tang Clan lately. Also, Dr. Dre, DZK, Mr.Lif, Sage Francis, The Beastie Boys, 7L and Esoteric.-
