Even if you can’t make it to Swans’ forthcoming Mouth To Mouth mini-festival, there’s still a chance to see Michael Gira and his merry band of apostates on UK shores.
The band have announced a handful of dates across England in April. Birmingham, Brighton, Leeds and Bristol will play host to the band, and support will come from Xiu Xiu. Mouth To Mouth – which boasts appearances from Mercury Rev Tettix Experiment and Ben Frost (once responsible for a track called ‘We Love You Michael Gira’, the sycophant) – falls slap bang in the middle of the tour.
April 1 – Birmingham – HMV Institute
April 2 – Brighton – Concorde 2
April 4 – London – KOKO (Mouth To Mouth)
April 5 – Leeds – Stylus
April 6 – Bristol – Arnolfini
