Quintessential US post-punk act Swans are to play the Limelight 2 on August 14, following last year's triumphant The Seer.
Formed in 1982 by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Michael Gira, Swans emerged from New York's No Wave scene and had a revolving-doors policy with regard to their lineup until they dissolved in 1997. Their twelfth album - a double on CD, a triple on vinyl - The Seer was released in 2012 to almost universal acclaim
Tickets, priced at £20, are available from Ticketmaster. Doors open at 8pm.
