Swans return to the UK for an evening at London's Roundhouse on May 27 with very special guest Thurston Moore, marking Swans' final London performance in the band’s current incarnation.
On 28 May Swans perform at the debut Transformer festival in Manchester on a bill that includes The Fall, Royal Trux’s first UK show in over 15 years, This Is Not This Heat and Loop. An ideal line up for a band that play songs like ‘Raping A Slave’, ’Public Castration Is A Good Idea’ and ‘You People Make Me Fucking Sick’. Their recent show at the Islington Assembly Hall was chronicled here by our own Robert Freeman.
Following the announcement of May 2017 dates in London and Manchester, Swans have confirmed details of European tour in spring 2017 in support of their latest album, The Glowing Man.
Little Annie will join Swans on the European dates from Oslo through to Amsterdam, and further guests will be announced over the coming months.
