In the future, would you guys like to see more trivia style contests, or should we continue with the submission based contests we’ve had in the past?

Unless otherwise specified (like today), a trivia competition would be posted at a certain time, and everyone would have 24 hours to answer. Then, we would draw a random winner from the pool of people with correct answers. Submission style contests would be like our “tell us your best live experience” or “what is good for you” contests. 

Your feedback on this would be greatly appreciate. We LOVE doing contests, and we’d love to continue them in the way that makes our followers most happy.

Just wanted to let you guys know…

Until further notice, the deadline of the contest is gone. I haven’t heard back from Paper + Plastick about getting the correct 7”, so there’s not point in changing the deadline every week. I’ll let you know when I hear from them.

On the bright side, this means that there’s TONS OF TIME for more people to submit videos! Yayyyy! GET ON IT.

Hey guys!

We just hit 400 followers! Which, if you’ve kept track of our blog over the past few weeks, means we’re gonna do the contest we’d promised to do!

We’ve got a lot of cool prizes to give out:

One extremely lucky grand prize winner will receive a copy of Ups and Downsizing on vinyl (green), a signed copy of Good For Me (which includes the UK bonus track “Never Greener”), and a t-shirt selected from the new merch on this last tour.

The second place winner will receive a copy of the limited edition Welcome Back Riders 7” (red/blue splatter) and the red wave t-shirt.

The third place winner will receive the Welcome Back Riders 7”.

The rules are simple.

Make a video of anything Swellers related. Play a cover, make a video of you lip-syncing to one of their songs, make a lyric video, or even make a stop-motion video like the one Kyle was already featured in yesterday! Be creative, and you might be the winner of one of the prizes!


- The video needs to be at least 45 seconds long, but it can’t be longer that 5.30 minutes.
- The video really needs to be Swellers- related. (So don’t just send in a video of you wearing a swellers shirt and doing a bunch of crazy stuff. Although that’d probably be fun to watch, that’s not what this contest is about) 
- You have to be following this blog (we will check!)

Good luck, and be creative! The contest will end on March 10th! Submit away.

-The FYTS crew

Okay! So! As you guys know, Paper + Plastick sent the wrong 7” when I ordered the prizes for this contest. I still haven’t gotten the replacement, so we’re extending the deadline again, because we can’t really end the contest when we don’t have all the prizes.

However, we also don’t have that many submissions! Guys, it’s not as hard as  you think. You can literally submit a video of yourself talking about why you like the Swellers, or a story about them, or anything. It doesn’t have to be you singing or doing backflips or something.

So our new deadline is going to be April 1st. I expect to see some more awesome submissions. You guys have never failed us in the past, so don’t start now! I’ll keep everyone updated on the situation with P+P.
