Baggage (ex-the Swellers) teases new music

Today, we’re bringing you news of a brand new band called Baggage. Baggage features Jonathan Diener, former drummer of the Swellers. However, unlike the Swellers, Diener will be stepping out from behind the kit and in front of the microphone for the first time in his career. (Hopefully, it’ll be more like Dave Grohl and less like Don Henley.) While Baggage has yet to release a full song, the band has put out a quick snippet of new music sans vocals via YouTube, and it sounds appropriately grungy, far from the pop-punk Diener cut his teeth in with the Swellers. In the meantime, you can add them on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.
