News: SWANS Add Tour Dates, Unveil New Track

SWANS, the experimental rock group fronted by prominent musician Michael Gira, has announced an addition of new shows to their ongoing world tour. Through October and November, the band will be touring at 23 additional locations across Europe. Specific information regarding tour dates can be found below, and tickets can be purchased here.

The band have also released a new track titled “Los Angeles: City Of Death.” The track is one of two recently released singles set to be a part of The Beggar, SWANS’ upcoming record. Releasing on June 23, The Beggar has a track list of eleven songs and can be preordered here.

The group’s frontman, Michael Gira, describes: “…I decided it was time to write songs for a new Swans album and forget about everything else. They came relatively easily, always informed by the suspicion that these could be my last. When I finally was able to travel, songs in hand, to Berlin to work with my friends recording this record, the feeling was akin to the moment in The Wizard of Oz when the film changes from black and white to color. Now I’m feeling quite optimistic. My favorite color is pink.”
