Final Tour In Band’s Current Incarnation





“Swans wring out the beauty from each available moment” – The Skinny May 2017 

“…as the audience tonight surely know, right now is the best – and possibly the last – time to experience this astonishing ensemble in all their living intensity.” – The Wee Review May 2017

“Swans live is performance art of the highest order” – LA Music Sep 2016

“…a mighty devotional racket” – The Scotsman Oct 2016


SWANS – currently on tour in the UK and across Europe – have announced the final dates in the band’s current incarnation.

Do not miss your chance to see this most powerful and transcendent iteration of the band as it draws to a close. The tour includes a very special show at London’s historic Roundhouse on Saturday 27 May, with very special guests the Thurston Moore Band and Little Annie.

Michael Gira, talking about the Roundhouse show has said: “This one is especially meaningful to me personally – first time sharing a stage with Thurston and a band (we did play solo together last year) in something like 34 years. Really happy he’s doing this!” 

Watch a video teaser featuring the band’s incredible live performance here.

Swans recently joined Marc Riley in the studio for a session, listen back to that here.

2017’s exhaustive final dates include Manchester’s Transformer festival on 28 May on a bill that includes The Fall, Royal Trux’s first UK show in over 15 years, This Is Not This Heat, Sex Swing and Loop and the final Brooklyn date in November this year features ADULT. (full details below). Michael Gira collaborated with the band on their latest album, Detroit House Guests, out now on Mute.



 “The past seven years of my life have been the most productive and fulfilling of my career. It’s not my place to draw qualitative distinctions between the previous and current periods, and I wouldn’t presume any expertise in doing so, but from a personal perspective, this time period has been the most consistently engaging and even enthralling in my recollection. I thank here Norman Westberg, Christoph Hahn, Thor Harris, Phil Puleo, Christopher Pravdica and our most recent convert, Paul Wallfisch, for their commitment to ecstasy and their sheer stamina in this marathon adventure. Much love to these intrepid explorers of sonic truth! May God snatch us all by his teeth and fling us out over his shoulder into the great black beyond, where we will spin slowly and infinitely through space with an ever-nascent smile emerging on our face. 

… and what’s next? Musically, I have no clear idea, and don’t really want one at this juncture. I seem to have the sound of a sustained chord in my mind – not the striking of the chord, but what hangs in the air after as it dissipates,  and what surrounds it, and I look forward to filling that out, traveling there. I will continue to use the name Swans, but will revert to a cast of revolving contributors, drawing on a pool of men and women I’ve worked with along the way (and new ones too)… In addition to new music, I’ll be working on making sure the Swans catalog is all reissued properly and stays in print in the best possible form and packaging (which is just as important to me as the music itself)”.
