From epic road songs to tear-stained tales of heartache, Texas-style rockers to dark-humored murder ballads, the songwriting of frontman Fredd Luongo covers a lot of musical and emotional territory. Reminiscent of their alt-country forefathers Whiskeytown, Dwight Yoakam, and early Steve Earle, The Swearengens have held their own sharing the stage with contemporary alt-country stalwarts Sturgill Simpson, Lydia Loveless, Whitey Morgan and more, winning over appreciative new fans in the process. Whether headlining a Friday night at Seattle's legendary Tractor Tavern, kicking off the final day of the Watershed Country Music Festival at the Gorge, or rocking all-night at your favorite roadside honky-tonk dive bar, The Swearengens and their loyal following of hard-drinking, outlaw swingin' two-steppers are sure to get the dancefloor rolling and the whiskey flowing.

“A great record…we listened to this probably 8 billion times on tour, it really just sounds like walking into a bar at the beginning of the night and closing it at the end of the night. For me, it encompasses the loneliness of touring and that’s why I love it so much. I think it’s beautiful.” - Lydia Loveless, Bloodshot Records artist

    "Heartfelt, commanding vocals, incisive songwriting, and rowdy shows chock full of revelers and dancers...a guaranteed good time." - No Depression

    "A lot of honky-tonkin' twang and whiskey-swilling grit…keeps Seattle's alt-country scene alive and drinking heavily." - Seattle Weekly

    "Saloon-stomping, quintessential alt-country, with all the cognitive dissonance of an upbeat dance tune set to paeans of alcoholism, prescription drugs, domestic homicide and the devil." - City Arts Magazine

    "Top Ten Albums List, 2012 and 2013" - Leigh Bezezekoff, KEXP

    "Rich and energetic...a formidable wall of whiskey-infused alt-country music." - Randomville
