It's with very glad (and duly earbud-donning) ears that we receive the news that the mighty Swans are returning to the UK this year as part of yet another globe-traversing tour. Last year's To Be Kind placed at number three in our end of year chart for 2014, and you can remind yourself of its greatness with the record's 'A Little God In My Hands' below the UK dates (including their biggest ever UK headline show at London's Roundhouse):

Wed 20 - Marble Factory, Bristol
Thu 21 - Roundhouse, London
Sat 23 - Art School, Glasgow
Sun 24 - Mandela Hall, Belfast
Mon 25 - Button Factory, Dublin
