Although the charismatic Swans leader Michael Gira has already laid his band to rest a number of times in the past – the last occasion being in 2017 - Swans is now alive and kicking harder than ever. In yet another form. Gira: ‘Swans is now comprised of a revolving cast of musicians, selected for both their musical and personal character.’  And that 'revolving cast of musicians' looks impressive on their soon to be released album ‘Leaving Meaning'. Think: Anna von Hausswolff, Ben Frost (also present in AB), Baby Dee and The Necks.

Kurt Overbergh: ‘Together with contemporaries Einstürzende Neubauten, Swans sounds just as urgent as when they started out in the early ‘80s. Bravo!’

For fans of Einstürzende Neubauten, Wolf Eyes, Sunn 0))), Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Nick Cave, …
AB fun fact Michael Gira’s musical taste remains impeccable. He has already previously taken Pan Sonic, Devendra Banhart, Akron/Family, and also noise lady Pharmakon along on tour.
