Swans ATP Sideshow

One of the most influential bands to emerge from New York’s ‘No Wave’ movement of the early 1980s, Swans have announced a sideshow to their All Tomorrow's Parties appearance next February.

Since front man and driving force Michael Gira decided to reconvene the group in 2010 after over a decade hiatus, Swans have released two studio albums and one live recording, the latest of which, The Seer, has been described by Gira as “the culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I’ve ever made, been involved in or imagined.”

Swans will be playing Melbourne at the Corner Hotel on Friday February 15. Tickets on sale Monday September 17. Swans will also be appearing at All Tomorrow's Parties on Saturday February 16, which is sold out.
