Just two days ago we got a taste of Swans new album To Be Kind with 'A Little God In My Hands' and now they've announced a North American tour in support of that album. The tour kicks off in Quebec City, Quebec on June 17 and treks all around the US and Canada before ending a few weeks later in New Haven, CT. Before that, though, they have a run of UK shows as well, so it's gearing up to be a busy couple of months for the band. To Be Kind is out on 13th May through Young God/Mute Records.
