Swollen Members/Madchild LIVE in Canberra.

KP Records presents Award winning Canadian hip-hop outfit Swollen Members live in Canberra this September as part of their upcoming headline tour of Australia in support of their recently released new album “Brand New Day”. 

Supported in the Capital by local artists Troy Flawlezz (KP), Nix, KG and introducing Kawpicturless (KP).

Formed in 1992 the golden era of hip-hop Swollen Members released countless successful albums and collaborated with the likes of Jurassic 5, Nelly Furtardo, Everlast and Dilated Peoples.
In 1996 Swollen Members where initiated into the Rock Steady Crew.
Swollen Members is one of only three rap groups affiliated with Rock Steady, others include Dilated peoples and The Arsonists.

The mid 2000’s saw Swollen Members song ‘Heavy’ feature in SSX3, WWE Day of reckoning & WWE Smackdown! Vs RAW.
Several more albums followed with collaborations with Tech N9ne, Talib Kweli & La Coka Nostra.

Flash forward to 2014 where social media dominates and many rap groups from the Golden Era have struggled to maintain popularity.
Swollen Members have rejuvenated a stellar career amassing over 50million plays worldwide on youtube and hundreds of thousands of facebook likes.

On top of the groups success Madchild has taken his solo career to new heights with countless viral hit singles, several impressive album releases and an impressive outing in the KOTD rap battle league which saw him take a memorable win.
No stranger to touring Swollen Members have taken to the road for over 50 dates across the USA and have now announce a much anticipated headline tour of Australia.

With the release of their new album “Brand New Day”, Swollen Members have taken back control and re-launched their label Battleaxe Records.
The label was one of the hip-hop’s premiere independent record labels, now re-launched by artists that have a desire to return hip-hop culture to its rawest form.
The reason why countless fans have the Battleaxe skull logo emblazoned on their body is that it represents a common bond for like-minded individuals who live their life with a passion for art, music, and culture.
They are all part of a growing movement that is taking over.

Fans from the Golden Era, dedicated fans enthusiastically titled warriors and fans from the new generation do not miss what promises to be the live hip-hop tour of the year!
