Swans to headline Supersonic Festival 2010

Headed by Michael Gira, the infamous SWANS, have confirmed they will be making a rare live appearance at this year’s Supersonic Festival at Birmigham’s Custard Factory (22-24th October).

Swans are the first band to be announced for this year’s festival and weekend tickets are now available via(The Ticket Sellers - http://www.theticketsellers.co.uk/ and SeeTickets - http://www.seetickets.com/

The recent reactivation of the band - with the line up of: Michael Gira; guitar, voice, mendicant friar act (original Swans), Norman Westberg: guitar (original Swans), Christoph Hahn: guitar (mid-period Swans and most Angels of Light ), Phil Puleo; drums, percussion, dulcimer etc etc (final Swans tour and most of Angels of Light), Chris Pravdica: bass and gadgets (Flux Information Sciences / Services/ Gunga Din) and Thor Harris: drums, percussion, vibes, dulcimer, curios, keys, etc... (Angels of Light, now also with Shearwater) - promises to be as formidable as the early, brutal and growling noise albums they made their mark with.

The band are currently in the studio recording their brand new full-length to be released via Young God later in the year.
