Personified by the dynamic and intense MC duo Prevail and Madchild, SWOLLEN MEMBERS have returned with the long-awaited sixth studio album Armed To The Teeth (Battleaxe/ Suburban Noize) which dropped on October 27th featuring guest appearances by Tech N9ne, Everlast and Slaine from La Coka Nostra, Glasses Malone and Talib Kweli. `Warrior,` the first single and video from Armed To The Teeth (featuring Tre Nyce and Young Kazh) has just been released to radio and television. SWOLLEN MEMBERS, Canada’s undisputed kings of underground hip hop, have enjoyed a successful career, and have worked with some of the most respected MC’s around, but when it came time to record their sixth studio album, they were forced to confront the skeletons that had been hiding in their closet. Madchild was struggling with drug addiction, he was embroiled in legal battles, and his association with outlaw motorcycle clubs provoked the police to swarm his house in full riot gear. Also at this time, Swollen Members’ record label Battleaxe Records had collapsed leaving them homeless. They have kicked out the garbage and are back on track.  With five MuchMusic video awards, four Juno Awards for Best Rap Recording of the Year, highly acclaimed tours from Los Angeles to Japan, and the respect of some of the heaviest hitters in the business all under their belt, SWOLLEN MEMBERS returns with a hot North American tour and a new CD that is their strongest statement to date.
