Experimental noise rock icons!
Swans haven't mellowed with age, the band's new lineup is as pummeling and ferocious as ever, and frontman Michael Gira remains committed to delivering a savage wall of sound that pulls no punches. Gira cuts a shamanistic figure on stage, ritualistically leading the band through a sonic maelstrom that verges on the spiritual for acolytes of Swans' philosophy of transcendence through sheer decibel destruction.
Known for rewriting their own material live on stage, Swans never fail to floor ticket buyers with their creativity and intensity on their unforgettable tours. Photo credit : Susan Moss Photography
