http://swmrs.com SWMRS (formerly "Emily's Army") is an American punk rock band formed in Oakland, California in 2004 by Cole Becker and Joey Armstrong, with Cole's brother Max joining only a few weeks afterwards. They drew on a mix of influences ranging from the Beach Boys to the Ramones to create their own brand of rock and roll. The band added Travis Neumann in 2009, who later left in 2014 due to creative differences. The band released a demo and a string of EPs from 2008 to 2010. They released their first album, Don't Be a Dick, on June 14, 2011. The band's second album, Lost at Seventeen, was released on June 11, 2013. Bassist Sebastian Mueller missed a few shows in 2015 due to college exams and was replaced by drummer Joey Armstrong's brother, Jakob Armstrong, for a few shows. The band's third studio album, and their first under the name SWMRS after dropping their former name, Drive North, was released February 12, 2016, via Uncool Records. Read more on Last.fm.
