The Swear is an Atlanta-based rock band led by award-winning songwriter Elizabeth Elkins. Driven by a punk work ethic, the band has played hundreds of shows across the United States since its beginnings in 2005, and has released two records. The band's songs have been on many television shows, including Smallville, Rescue Me and Jersey Shore.
In 2013, the band is releasing "Gold and Hymns and Hell", three maxi-singles. The self-produced set of songs is raw and aggressive - and recorded mostly live - tying the group even closer to its punk roots. With titles like "Pornography on Avenue A" and "Sex and the Drugs", the songs make no attempt at pop perfection. Elkins is at her sneering best with a nothing-to-lose bravado from the boys behind her.
