"THE BOTTOM LINE: Swans fill Koko with friends, and your tender ears with noise. GIG OF THE WEEK" Time Out

"The Seer proves that Michael Gira's band spent their 13 years off brewing up an immense glowering turmoil: bagpipes, bells, guitar noise, even members of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Low all being swept along by their tempest" The Guardian Guide

Says Gira, “This is the first installment in what we hope to be a yearly festival, focused on disparate music and genres. Artists are chosen based on their ability to resuscitate, set fire to the air, or to mesmerize. All of the performers chosen for this year’s festival I find personally to be compelling in this regard. The goal: joy!”

Praise For The Seer:
"Epic darkness...." Uncut

"this is Swans at their most user-unfriendly and trouser soiling. Mega!" Mojo

"All hail SWANS!" The Quietus

"great tidal waves of noise crash and collide; beauty and chaos meet, showing us heaven and hell, the perfect chord, the divine inspiration. Dark...loud…and utterly fucking awesome." Clash
"The Seer is the sound of Gira travelling beyond the role of Hellfire preacher to otherworldly lightning conductor of sound and fury, and the sound of his band as a cataclysmic force of natre in extremis" Terrorizer

"the one band that makes the best case for extreme music as a profound experience, and one that transcends mimesis or expression. That’s to say: they don’t sing about emotions; they obliterate them; they are the sensation they seek to create." Drowned in Sound
