"Having formed late in 2017, Redditch four piece Swan Prince can already boast an impressive resume of live shows, from playing Polite Riot Festival in 2018, to supporting Teenage Bottlerocket and The Bombpops. Now, looking to build on the premise and excitement of last year’s debut EP, they are back with another EP, “Enjoy The Rain”, which was released on 15th March via Hell Hath No Fury Records.
By taking a pinch of pop-punk, skate-punk and emo Swan Prince have crafted their own unique sound and path which, with a little more development of their sound, is sure to make for an exciting debut album." - Colin's Punk Rock World (UK)
"Swan Prince is a Birmingham band who’s been making all the right moves touring through the UK. They’ve only been around for two years and already have amassed quite the following and show portfolio, having shared the stage with such acts as Bad Cop/Bad Cop, MEST, The Murderburgers, The Bombpops, and Teenage Bottlerocket." - Dying Scene (USA)
“More times than not, when you come across a festival lineup you discover new acts, though it’s not all that often you go “hang on, these guys are pretty good”. Introducing Redditch punks, Swan Prince, who grabbed my attention when checking out the bill for Polite Riot Festival 2018. Just a year following their formation, this four-piece will be sharing the stage with skate punk icons, Teenage Bottlerocket, and after hearing their recently released EP, ‘Never Look Back’, I’m not surprised that such an opportunity has landed on them.” - Broken Arrow Magazine (UK)
“Swan Prince are a four piece pop punk band from Redditch. The band only formed in September of 2017 but are quickly making a name for themselves throughout the UK's underground punk rock scene. In June they released their debut EP Never Look Back. Knowing that Swan Prince are influenced by some CPRW favourites in the form of Bad Cop Bad Cop and The Bombpops, I was keen to check out Never Look Back.
Never Look Back is an EP that showcases a band with a huge upside. Swan Prince have written four great pop punk tracks that are not only great fun but lyrically very important. They help you to see that you're not alone and there are many people going through the same thing as you. The more bands that do this the better! Are Swan Prince on their way to becoming the next big thing in the UK punk scene? Perhaps it's too soon to say but I wouldn't bet against it.” - Colin’s Punk Rock World (UK)
“Hailing from the West Midlands, Swan Prince have been making a bit of a splash within the UK scene, seemingly finding themselves on every good punk rock bill within a significant radius of their hometown. After working hard playing everything (and with everyone) from 2018’s Polite Riot Festival to Teenage Bottlerocket, Mest & The Bombpops, the band self-released their EP, ‘Never Look Back’.
All of the above is even more impressive when you consider that the band has been in existence for less than one year.” - Three Discordant Chords (UK)
"With their debut 4 Track EP, Swan Prince encapsulate a refreshing Poppy, 90’s Skate Punk vibe. It’s hard not to feel like a pre-teen listening to a Revelation or Fat Wreck compilation with this nostalgia-fest." - Hell Hath No Fury Records (UK)
"We discovered melodic skate punk act, Swan Prince, from Birmingham, earlier this year when doing our previews for Polite Riot Fest, and we instantly fell in love with the raw pop-punk skate punk mix that reminded us of Tilt and Tsunami Bomb." - Broken Arrow Magazine (UK)
"If you want to make your dusty Tony Hawks pro skater playlist shine again, you should put Swan Prince's debut EP in the right MP3 folder. The Brits are in the tradition of big skatepunk names like Face To Face and No Use For A Name : they mix catchy sing-along melodies with equally catchy guitar lines, and then the quartet jumps into raging fast Drum roll like Rodney Mullen in the halfpipe. The "Never Look Back" EP still sounds like scarred knees, but with schooners it would only be half as exciting." - Visions Magazin (Germany)
"Swan Prince skate punk band led by Rachel Blewett, released the video of their new single "Running On Empty"
Originally from Birmingham, England and just a year after being formed Swan Prince has had a great impact within the UK punk rock scene, which has led them to share the stage with bands like Teenage Bottlerocket, A Wilhem Scream, Badcop Badcop, Mest and The Bombpops." - Punkeando (Mexico)
