Michael Gira’s Swans to tour Europe and North America this summer

By , May 20 2013

Get your earplugs ready.

Last year’s full-length The Seer was a brilliant and succinct culmination of the Swans catalogue to date, and stood as one of the finest albums of 2013. It’s only right then that the album should get a proper tour, and Michael Gira’s boys are due to traipse through the US and Europe from now until the end of the summer.

For those Swans fans who want to see something a little different, Sacred Bones’ Pharmakon will be supporting the band on their Iowa, Kentucky, Ohio and Buffalo, New York dates bringing her particular brand of gruesome, overdriven noise to the party. [via Pitchfork]
