ARTIST PROFILE: SWOLLEN MEMBERS
The Canadian hip-hop group from Vancouver - consisting of artists Mad Child, Prevail, and producer Rob The Viking - is prominently known for putting their city on the map as well as its underground style. Since the group formed in 1992, the Swollen Members sound has swept through Canada and gained the following of fans all over the globe.
With noted albums such as Bad Dreams, Black Magic, and Armed To the Teeth, Swollen Members has perfected the gritty, street-style rap and has taken it to a whole new level. What started out as an album has quickly become its own genre listened to by tons of dedicated fans waiting for Swollen Members to come perform live in their city.
After years of building up a following, the group realized that their fans were a dedicated family fully supporting the “Battle-Axe movement” and with this, Swollen Members was able to create the “Battle-Axe Warriors," a clan of loving Swollen supporters all around the world. This type of extended family that they have created brings the music community closer together and is one of the only of its kind.
The legendary group continues to impact the Canadian hip-hop scene and always will. The powerful movement they have created has built up a high demand to see them perform live, and their global tours are consistently anticipated. Swollen Members has always showed love to the fans, and we are happy to announce that they will be joining us for the Electric Love Music Festival in Chilliwack, BC on August 1st!
