Swans At Supersonic

Michael Gira's Swans are set to perform at the forthcoming Supersonic Festival in Birmingham. The latest incarnation of the post-punk, New York No Wave group consists of original members Norman Westberg and Cristoph Hahn along with Phil Puleo, Chris Pravdica and Thor Harris (though original and long-running member, Jarboe, will not be appearing). The group are currently recording a new full length album to be released on Gira's Young God label later this year.

Supersonic Festival takes place at Birmingham's Custard Factory, 22-24 October. Tickets are on sale now, click here for more information.
