DHP CONCERTS PRESENTS
29th October - Leeds Uni Stylus
30th October - Manchester Academy
New York no wave group Swans were formed by Michael Gira in 1982, and
quickly became renowned for their punishing onslaughts of sound, extreme
volume levels, and the brutal growls and shouts of Gira's vocals. From the
much heralded Children of God album in 1987 to their ultimate statement,
Soundtracks For The Blind in 1997, they managed to range from mechanical
proto-industrial rock, to atmospheric folk, to gentle acoustic tracks,
before disbanding in 1997.
Michael Gira began working on new Swans material in January 2010. A new
album will be released in August on Gira's own label, Young God Records.
This show will see Michael Gira, Norman Westerberg, Christoph Hahn, Phil
Puelo, Thor Harris and Chris Pravdica playing a mixture of new tracks and
the heavier Swans material, such as Your Property, Raping A Slave, Power For
Power and New Mind.
