Swans Extend Reunion Tour, Add Vancouver Date

Swans Extend Reunion Tour, Add Vancouver Date
Now that we have all been thoroughly spooked by Swans' My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky, the beloved band are extending their tour in support of the new record. They now have shows booked all the way up until May 2011, with one new Canadian date in Vancouver confirmed.

The massive string of dates will take the band across Europe for the remainder of 2010. In 2011, they will return to North America for a run of shows before heading to Australia and then back to Europe. See the dates for the epic jaunt below, and more dates are to be announced.

This isn't the first time Swans have played Canada since reforming earlier this year. They previously performed at Pop Montreal and in Toronto. If you're looking for a reason to check out the band live, read our rave review of the Montreal show here.
