Swans European Dates Announced For 2017

Swans return to the UK for an evening at London's Roundhouse on May 27 with very special guest Thurston Moore, marking Swans' final London performance in the band’s current incarnation.

On 28 May Swans perform at the debut Transformer festival in Manchester on a bill that includes The Fall, Royal Trux’s first UK show in over 15 years, This Is Not This Heat and Loop. An ideal line up for a band that play songs like ‘Raping A Slave’, ’Public Castration Is A Good Idea’ and ‘You People Make Me Fucking Sick’. Their recent show at the Islington Assembly Hall was chronicled here by our own Robert Freeman.

Following the announcement of May 2017 dates in London and Manchester, Swans have confirmed details of European tour in spring 2017 in support of their latest album, The Glowing Man.

Little Annie will join Swans on the European dates from Oslo through to Amsterdam, and further guests will be announced over the coming months.

King Kong Company Line Up Academy Show For April

Waterford dance act King Kong Company return to Dublin in April. Renowned as one of the most entertaining live acts in the country, the six-piece won the Pure M Best Live Act 2016 and were regarded by many as the highlight of this year’s Electric Picnic.

A week later they signed a European record deal with Caroline International, a subsidiary of Universal Music and played a sold out gig at the Dublin Academy.

KKC originally formed in college in the late ‘90s playing with Underworld, Orbital and Paul Oakenfold. They reformed in 2011 and re-established themselves as a live force. Their debut album came out in September and they have promised some new material for their first major show of 2017.

“The band will be premiering some raucous and raw tunes, bringing the stage antics up a notch or two and inviting a couple of guests along to swing through the rafters with them. This will be a gig not to be missed.”

Tickets on sale Friday November 18 from Ticketmaster
