Current Swell Release Video For Album Title Track "Long Time Ago"; West Coast Dates Start Dec 7

VIctoria-B.C. roots rock foursome Current Swell have released a new video for the track "Long Time Ago" from their latest album of the same name  The band will continue their headline tour on the west coast starting this Friday, Dec 7 in Portland, OR and wrapping Saturday, Dec 15 in Spokane, WA (all tour dates below).  This marks Current Swell’s first official headline tour in the States; the band recently opened for Dispatch on a small run of west coast dates.

Since forming in 2005, Current Swell’s west coast influenced sound—an infectious combination of blues, roots, pop and rock—have earned the quartet scores of devoted fans from Canada to Brazil, where they recently returned from headlining two major festivals in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. The independent band started with modest expectations, playing shows in settings that ranged from backyards to beaches and using social media to grow their audience. Since then, they have supported artists like Dispatch, Xavier Rudd, K’Naan, K-OS, The Beach Boys, The Tragically Hip and more. Last summer, Current Swell not only headlined a Canada Day concert in front of a crowd of 45,000, but they also earned first place at Vancouver’s Peak Performance Project, a professional development program designed to help emerging artists.
