Swans come to The Lemon Tree, Aberdeen on Friday May 19th 2017. Their infamous and mighty live performance has been described by the Guardian as ‘a magnificent achievement’, ‘a revelation’ by The
Quietus and by NME as ‘colossal’, and this event promises to show it at its most intense. They round off an incredible year which has seen the release of their critically acclaimed album, To Be Kind, with a remastered edition of their debut studio album, Filth, out 27 October. Filth, released in 1983, was recently described by Clash magazine as ‘a brutally exhaustive work swimming in a thematic pool of audacious abjection’ and by The Village Voice as ‘no wave with five years of practice, too messy for mysticism and too funny for suicide.’

Swans, led by Michael Gira, formed in 1982 and, after disbanding in 1997, returned with the critically acclaimed albums My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky (2010), The Seer (2012) and this year’s To Be Kind – which was awarded the number one slot in The Quietus’ Albums of the Year So Far and featured in MOJO, Drowned In Sound, The 405, Rolling Stone and many more mid-year lists.

Swans are Michael Gira, Norman Westberg, Christoph Hahn, Phil Puleo, Thor Harris and Christopher Pravdica.
