Swans add UK and Ireland dates to European tour

Michael Gira’s merry band of bastards have announced a series of UK and Ireland dates for May.

Swans’ albums are monolithic enough – their most recent effort, To Be Kind, was two hours long – but the band’s live shows are where they truly ascend, sometimes lasting up to three hours. The group have now added a selection of British dates to their May European tour, including shows in London (21 May, The Roundhouse) and Glasgow (May 23, Art School).

Full list of dates below. Revist Maya Kalev’s interview with Michael Gira.
