# 1 in The Quietus’ Albums of the Year So Far

The Guardian – “More than 30 years after they started, Swans are still flying boldly against the prevailing winds of our age.”

Drowned In Sound 10/10 “We’re on a ladder to God, and Swans are leading the way”

NME 9/10 “An insane and challenging, ambitious and exceptional work of art.”

 

 

Swans have announced their biggest UK headline show yet, at London’s legendary Roundhouse, on 21 May 2015. Tickets for the show go onsale from Friday 12 September here, special guests will be announced shortly.

 

Swans infamous and mighty live performance has been described by the Guardian as “a magnificent achievement”, by The Quietus as “a revelation” and by NME as “colossal” and in the surroundings of London’s historic Roundhouse, the event promises to show it at its most intense.

 

The band’s extensive live schedule sees them return to Europe in September, and a recently announced festival curated by Swans / Michael Gira will see three days of music (20-23 November) culminating in a Swans performance. The Mouth To Mouth festival, part of Le Guess Who? in Utrecht, features a stunning line up that includes labelmate Ben Frost alongside Wire, Silver Apples, Savages & Bo Ningen’s epic sonic poem ‘Words to the Blind’, Xiu Xiu plus many more, full details at: http://leguesswho.nl/

 

In addition, they round off an incredible year which has seen the release of their critically acclaimed album, To Be Kind, with a remastered edition of their debut studio album, ‘Filth’, out vinyl, CD and digitally on 27 October 2014.

 

‘Filth’ was released in 1983, the album was recently described by Clash magazine as “a brutally exhaustive work swimming in a thematic pool of audacious abjection” and by The Village Voice as “no wave with five years of practice, too messy for mysticism and too funny for suicide.” The vinyl edition of ‘Filth’ will come with two reproduction live posters and is the first in a series of remastered catalogue reissues.

 

Swans, led by Michael Gira, formed in 1982 and, after disbanding in 1997, returned with the critically acclaimed albums ‘My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky’ (2010), ‘The Seer’ (2012) and this year’sTo Be Kind– which was awarded the #1 slot in The Quietus’ Albums of the Year So Far and featured in MOJO, Drowned In Sound, The 405, Rolling Stone and many more mid-year lists.

 

Swans are Michael Gira, Norman Westberg, Christoph Hahn, Phil Puleo, Thor Harris and Christopher Pravdica.
