Swans Biography - 30 Years of Radical Behaviour
Often heralded as loudest and heaviest band in the world by critics, this highly esteemed alt-rock troupe was formed in New York in the early '80s, the brainchild of multitalented artist and songwriter Michael Gira. A reaction to the city's punk-rock scene, they were part of the no-wave movement playing underground gigs on the city's Lower East Side. In 1983 their powerful debut album Filth was released, making them a bigger name in Europe than their homeland. After moving to Universal Records in 1989, the band adopted a more straightforward sound on their sixth LP The Burning World, their only major label release. In 1996 the group released their tenth album Soundtracks for the Blind, before taking a 14-year hiatus to explore other musical avenues.
Returning in 2010 with a semi-new line-up, the band received rave reviews for the LP My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky, and even more rapturous praise for 2010's The Seer. Proving a huge draw when playing at esteemed alternative festivals such as All Tomorrow's Parties and Green Man, their reputation as a must-see live act continues to grow more than 30 years into their career.
