As their explosive singles ‘Adrenaline’, ‘Controlled Emotions’ and ‘Sleepwalker’ already on over 50 rock and metal internet stations, SWIRL is hitting the road supporting BRITNY FOX and STEPHEN PEARCY on a winter tour.

Says the band, “We are thrilled to be included on the Metal In America XXX-Mas tour December 2008. We never imagined this opportunity would come our way . Going across North America with such an established and celebrated headliner as RATT front man Stephen Pearcy, he alone would have been enough. But to find out that will be with Britny Fox as well, just guarantees many, many hours nightly of hard rockin`, headbangin good times for every one in attendance! We are looking forward to reconnecting with the our fans as we begin to promote the upcoming ‘Timeline’ release!”
Timeline the upcoming album to be released later this year, features the singles ‘Adrenaline’ and ‘Sleepwalker’, played, mixed and produced by Fred Coury (CINDERELLA). ROUGH CUTT bassist Matt Thorr and Carlos Cavazo (QUIET RIOT, Ratt), also have producer credits on the album. Legendary music producer Beau Hill (ALICE COOPER, Ratt, WARRANT, CHAKA KHAN) will produce tracks as well.
Swirl is guitarist Duane “DT ” Jones, drummer Brian “Bam Bam ” Jones, and new members Al Ramirez on lead vocals and Shane Carlson on bass.
Formed by brothers Duane “DT ” and Brian “Bam Bam” Jones, and having gained fresh inspiration from new members Al Ramirez and Shane Carlson , Swirl is electric, re-tooled and ready to tour. With two new tracks ‘Adrenaline’ and ‘Sleepwalker’ produced by Fred Coury, and other great songs produced by Quiet Riot/ Ratt’s Carlos Cavazo and Rough Cutt’s Matt Thorr, Swirl’s blend of classic metal gives high energy to this exciting band.
