The Swan King Sign To Seventh Rule

Posted Oct. 19, 2010, 11:56 a.m. in Labels by Jon E.

Official press release:

Seventh Rule Recordings proudly welcomes The Swan King to its eccentric family.

The Swan King formed in 2009 by guitarist/vocalist Dallas Thomas (ex-Asschapel), bassist Jamie Drier (ex-Planes Mistaken For Stars) and Chicago native Zafar Musharraf on drums. When the band began, the trio started writing songs in the Robert Fripp Guitar Craft tuning to help them break out of the old rock comfort zone. They have often been compared to the songwriting of the Wipers mixed with the noisyness of bands on the Amphetamine Reptile label. The Swan King's debut release, "Eyes Like Knives" was recorded with Sanford Parker and is due out this spring on Seventh Rule.

The Swan King's current dates are as follows:

10/23 Chicago, IL @ Bottom Lounge w/ Pelican, The Life And Times
10/28 Chicago, IL @ Subterranean w/ Planes Mistaken For Stars, Big Science
10/29 Peoria, IL @ The Brass Rail
10/30 Nashville, TN @ Springwater w/ Stallion, Symptoms, Superbowl Rocketship
11/9 Chicago, IL @ Empty Bottle w/ Wolvhammer, Hunters
