Living legends Swans are kicking off their U.S. tour on Thursday, September 1st, in order to promote their latest album ‘The Glowing Man‘. Baby Dee will support Swans on their North American tour, while in Europe they will be headlining solo.

Micheal Gira, the brain behind the band, and instrumental co-workers Norman Westberg, Christophj Hahn, Phil Puleo, Chris Pravdica & Thor Harris are one of those unique acts that would be almost impossible to forget.
