Swollen Members



For the last five years, Vancouver rap group Swollen Members have played an important role in the evolving face of Canadian music - from their raw beginnings of their 1999 debut Balance, to the critically acclaimed Bad Dreams and the polished sound of 2002's Monsters In the Closet. Along with scoring a Juno Award for each of these groundbreaking albums and scooping up six MuchMusic Video Awards, Swollen Members have sold hundreds of thousands of albums while blazing new trails with their rare and rugged brand of hip hop.

Their latest album, Heavy, weighs in as their most sonically evolved to date. Featuring 14 powerhouse tracks - including the smash single "Watch This" which is already heating up the Canadian airwaves - Heavy concocts an intoxicating blend of concise rhymes and bass-heavy beats. Complete with eye-catching cover art designed by Todd McFarlane (creator of the renown comic book Spawn), Heavy also includes a bonus DVD featuring six music videos - including the award-winning video "Breath" featuring Nelly Furtado and directed by Todd McFarlane - exclusive interviews and backstage footage.
