ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Eric Nelson - Vocals/Guitar
Max Kenkel - Bass/Vocals
David Dempster - Drums

Thank you, Meatloaf. Had you not recorded a double live CD, a customer at Sam Goody would have never called for it, no one would have asked for a name to put with the CD while it was on hold, and the customer would have never said, "just hold for Swank." Also, thank you, Iowa. If it weren't for your funny smells, thinly-spread entertainment and dwindling number of places to hang out (let's change all of that!), we wouldn't have picked up our instruments and began the journey down the road of rock.

From Des Moines Cityview: Remember when you were young and breaking up with your significant other and having a fling was a rite of summer? Maybe you're trying to forget. Local rockers Hold For Swank hasn't, which is why the timing of their new album, "This is Why We Can't Have Nice Things," rife with breezy tunes of young love (and lust) sugar-coated with digestible pop melodies might be the perfect soundtrack for adventurous young lovers this summer. Vocalist-guitarist Eric Nelson, bassist Max Kenkel and drummer David Dempster seem to revel in the roller-coaster emotions of heartbreak in a surprisingly uplifting way on songs like "The Woes of Love," "Does She Realize," "Sleeping With the Enemy" and "My Promise (Another Fucking Love Song)." Ah, youth. -Michael Swanger
