Swans are set to curate a special Mouth to Mouth Curator Event at London’s Koko in April and have confirmed Grouper as a recent addition to the bill.

Taking place on 4 April 2013 at the Camden venue, Swans will also be joined by the likes of Xiu Xiu, Ben Frost and Mercury Rev’s Cinematic Silent Sound Tettix Wave Experiment.

Frontman Michael Gira said of the show:

“This is the first installment in what we hope to be a yearly festival, focused on disparate music and genres. Artists are chosen based on their ability to resuscitate, set fire to the air, or to mesmerize. All of the performers chosen for this year’s festival I find personally to be compelling in this regard. The goal: joy!”


Tickets are priced at £30 for the event and are on sale now.
