Swans are an American experimental band from New York, consisting of frontman Michael Gira, guitarists Norman Westberg and Christoph Hahn, drummer Phil Puleo, Christopher Pravdica on bass and Thor Harris on drums.
Formed in 1982, the band released their debut album, ‘Filth’, in 1983, and released a further nine albums, before they split in 1997. The band returned in 2010 and released 'My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky’. Since then they have released 'The Seer' in 2012 and 'To Be Kind' in 2014. The band released their latest album ‘The Glowing Man’, in June 2016 via Young God and Mute.
The band has headlined their own tours and shows across the USA and UK and has a fearsome reputation as a live act, playing at ferocious volume and with a rare intensity that has, at times, boiled over.
Swans are set to play UK shows in May, including London’s Roundhouse and Transformer at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse. There are also a number of North American shows later in the year. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information below on Stereoboard.

Swans have never shied away from the fact that their songs are punishing. Many of them last as long as your average punk LP, and very few offer straightforward sonic hits. But tedious and tiresome they are not. Investing in Swans’ music requires patience, but the process is rewarding.
