For more than a year, the Swayback have shuttled back and forth to Los Angeles to work with revered knob turner Andy Johns. While this news is not exactly new to us, it has managed to garner the notice of Music Connection Magazine, who included a photo of the outfit in the studio with Johns in the December issue of the magazine. The songs from those sessions are reportedly expected to surface early next year, and needless to say, we're eagerly awaiting to hear how the band has progressed, particularly with the lineup shifts, from Long Gone Lads, which was released almost two years ago.
