Punching Swans Album Launch Gig – Fri 29th Jan

January 18, 2016

Punching Swans will be playing a gig on Friday 29th January at Poco Loco to celebrate the launch of their new album ‘Nesting’ (out 22nd January), released on Skingasm Records.
They’ll be joined by Girl Power, a super noise hardcore trio from and those sexy riffmongers Bear Vs Manero, also from the stable of Skingasm.
Formed in 2011, Punching Swans are a noised/math/art rock trio from London and Kent. What began as a side project soon became a regular in the Medway DIY scene and they have released 2 albums and a split EP to date. ‘Nesting’ was mostly written shortly after the last album, 2014’s ‘Mollusc’, and honed on tour. Keen spotters out there might notice a not-so-subtle bird theme running throughout, with tracks such as ‘Beak Throat’, ‘Pigeon Street’ and ‘Ostrituals’. Partly inspired by the online Owl-man pranks, as well as The Wickerman and The Birds, ‘Nesting’ follows the story of a man ostracised by his local village and taking up residence in the local woods. His method of escape from the gloom comes via an obsession with transforming himself in to a bird man. As well as the usual CD and download formats, the band are also handcrafting a limited number of ‘Nesting’ books, which display his various sketches and thoughts in a half-journal, half-magical format.

Some of these limited edition hand crafted books will be available at the launch gig, so get them while you can!

Tracks from the forthcoming album have already been played on BBC 6 Music, Kerrang Radio and the Phil Taggart show on BBC Radio 1.

We’d love to see you at the gig, come along and say hi 🙂

Venue: Poco Loco, Chatham, Kent ME4 4DS.

Fri 29th Jan, 8.30pm. FREE ENTRY!
