Headed my Michael Gira, the infamous SWANS, have confirmed they will be making a rare live appearance at this year’s Supersonic Festival at Birmigham’s Custard Factory (22-24th October).
The recent reactivation of the band - with the line up of: Michael Gira; guitar, voice, mendicant friar act (original Swans), Norman Westberg: guitar (original Swans), Christoph Hahn: guitar (mid-period Swans and most Angels of Light ), Phil Puleo; drums, percussion, dulcimer etc etc (final Swans tour and most of Angels of Light), Chris Pravdica: bass and gadgets (Flux Information Sciences / Services/ Gunga Din) and Thor Harris: drums, percussion, vibes, dulcimer, curios, keys, etc... (Angels of Light, now also with Shearwater) - promises to be as formidable as the early, brutal and growling noise albums they made their mark with.
The band are currently in the studio recording their brand new full-length to be released via Young God later in the year. More details to follow.
