Swiss Army are an Alternative/Punk band hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who are currently signed to A-F Records—yes, Swiss Army are signed to Anti-Flag's independent record label! Swiss Army's current roster includes frontman Brandon Lehman, guitarist Dave Yarkovsky, drummer Chris Hawthorne, and bassist Jeff Morgan. Last year, they released their critically-acclaimed full-length debut, PARIS MOUNTAIN, on A-F Records, which was preceded by a 2016 self-titled EP. Now, Swiss Army have returned with their first official musical offering of 2019, "On Top of The World" featuring Garrett Dale of Red City Radio. It tackles topics of "both the excitement and pressure of achieving success," as ALTPRESS explains within a recent "On Top of The World" premiere feature. It seems like Swiss Army's new guitar-heavy single is being told from the perspective of someone who has definitely seen their fair share of great successes and even greater failures.
"'On Top of The World" is a walk that I've taken through the challenges of both excitement and dread that accompany any level of success. As we create and progress, with those come pressure, doubt, and the feeling that, at any point, the universe can swing its pendulum in the opposite direction, pulling everything back with it. Through that, I've learned that "success" isn't final. It's a battle won in embracing the victories to overcome the defeats," Swiss Army told The Witzard, via email. It was, also, revealed to us that Swiss Army are currently prepping their next A-F Records single, "Host." It will see a release on Friday, October 11, 2019 with two commemorative shows: first, at 4:00pm at Dancing Gnome Beer for an FREE in-brewery acoustic "warm-up" show and later, at The Funhouse at Mr. Small's for a proper full-band performance/release show to be held from 7-10:00pm. Dancing Gnome's in-brewery show will, also, include the release of a limited edition beer, called "Host," as well, which will be available in both cans and on draught at the brewery starting on Oct. 11. Swiss Army's "On Top of The World" is currently available on digital streaming platforms and their "Host" single/beer will become available starting Friday, October, 11, 2019.
