Swans expand North American tour, share new live video

    Swans have extended their upcoming world tour with a new string of U.S. dates for this fall. The iconic post-rockers will trek down the West Coast in early September, starting in Seattle on the 2nd and ending in Hollywood on the 11th. They already have a hefty number of stops mapped out from May to July, and you can find their entire docket ahead.

    The band’s year-long tour comes in support of their forthcoming record To Be Kind, due out May 13th via Young Gods/Mute Records. Featuring the guest talents of St. Vincent’s Annie Clark, Cold Specks, Little Annie, and Bill Rieflin, the album was partially funded by a live album culled from Swans’ 2012-2013 world tour. It’s fitting, then, that they’ve also released a concert video to coincide with the new dates. Below, watch the band deliver a truly forceful rendition of “Just A Boy” during last year’s Hellfest in Clisson, France.
