“To celebrate 25 years since the release of Swervedriver’s classic second album Mezcal Head, the band will be performing the record live for the first time throughout Europe and the UK in May 2018. But more than that, the band – comprising Adam Franklin, Jimmy Hartridge, Mikey Jones and Ben Ellis from Iggy Pop’s band (standing in for the on-sabbatical Mick Quinn) – will also be performing the band’s first album, the seminal Raise. The show will comprise of two sets with psychedelic interlude.

Swervedriver’s sixth album Remembering Forward is set to be released later in 2018.”

In 2013, Swervedriver performed their debut album, Raise, in its entirety in Australia and the UK and then went on to record the band’s highly acclaimed fifth album, I Wasn’t Born To Lose You, released in March 2015. This September, Adam Franklin, Jimmy Hartridge, Mikey Jones and Mick Quinn will be reprising the performance of Raise shows – for the first time in the USA – but with one large difference: they will also be performing their much loved second album, Mezcal Head, from front-to-back. The show will comprise of two sets.  A new (sixth) album has been penciled in for a 2018 release – stay tuned for more details.
