“Gamechanger” track listing:
Prepare For Payback

Fragments of a Broken Life
The Fall of Modern Man

SWORN ENEMY will celebrate the release of “Gamechanger” with three record release shows in late April. (See below for details.) Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
SWORN ENEMY was first signed by Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta, who released the group's first two EPs on his Stillborn Recordings label in 2001 and 2002. He also produced the band's full-length debut, “As Real As It Gets,” memorably praised by Lambgoat as “music that inspires you to want to beat the living piss out of the next unsuspecting person who walks in the room.” The album was released by Elektra Records in 2003, a year that saw the band deliver memorable performances on tour with Ozzfest.
In the 15 years since, SWORN ENEMY released four additional albums of punishing metallic hardcore and toured with a number of notable acts, including Anthrax, Mastodon, Fear Factory, Sepultura, Suicide Silence, Dying Fetus, Earth Crisis, Madball, Biohazard and Hatebreed. The band expects to spend much of 2019 touring in support of “Gamechanger.”
