Swollen Members hits the 519 with shows in Windsor and London

Swollen-membersAfter reuniting earlier this year for two new singles, Swollen Members — Madchild, Prevail and Rob The Viking — have announced their first-ever live album titled Live At The Fox Theatre. The Canadian rappers will be appearing at Rockstar Music Hall tonight (Sept. 27, 2018) as part of their Family Reunion Tour which began earlier this month in Alberta. The group then heads to London tomorrow for a show at Old East 765 Bar and Grill.

We spoke to founding member Prevail about the new 14-track album that captures the Canadian Hip Hop group’s explosive live show on record during a sold-out concert at The Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado.
