The Black Swans Support WHY? • October 19-November 5  

Posted at 10:34 am

The Black Swans will support WHY? from October 19-November 5. Opening for a seminal independent hip-hop rock band will surely be an experience for our existential folk rockers.

It will be a phenomenal and eclectic tour.

The Black Swans have received phenomenal praise for their most recent long-player from Pitchfork, MOJO, MAGNET, AllMusic, Paste, Dusted, PopMatters, Prefix, Blurt!, Consequence of Sound, Coke Machine Glow, No Depression, Uprooted Music Revue, and many more. Full album download is below.
