It's happening!

"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."

Anyone know the details? Are they performing either or on each date, a mix of tracks from both, etc?

That's a lotta swerve-therapy!

After looking at the tour, gonna try for 50%. I like that number, it reminds me of the expression "happy medium" which I think is a good approach to anything!

I'm thinking if encore includes autodidact & english subtitles (wish it was IWBTLY in its entirety) these shows are already a can't miss but damn, that's a lotta ...[fill in the blank]

I have my tickets to the Union Transfer show. I'm debating about going the night before to the Brooklyn show, but I need to find someone to go with me. I'm beyond excited about this. I think I've heard all of the songs off of Raise and Mezcal live before, but definitely not in order and back to back. Plus, Sandblasted is one of my favorites along with Duress. Since they have been out of the set list recently, it will be nice to hear them again.

EDIT: Also, just because it reminded me mentioned Union Transfer in Philly, Brian Jonestown Massacre is playing there the week before Swervedriver if anyone is interested,

This is a massive move. Was expecting a Mezcal tour following their previous Raise tour, but Raise+Mezcal? Outstanding!

I don't want to sound greedy, but being as Year of the Girl is one of my favorite songs, I will lose my mind if they play this song.

I wonder if they will actually play an encore after treating us to ALL. THOSE. SONGS? I'd be surprised. I'll be going gaga over it all at the Casbah either way.

Someone please put a camera up at one of the shows and record it end to end (if that's ok w Swerves)
Pales to being there, but at least I'd get an idea of 2 of my favorite albums beginning to end & back to back live.

Still hoping for this show in the EU

Hoping that Hurricane Irma skips all of the east coast and veers off into the Atlantic so lives, and this tour, aren't disrupted in any way.

Chris, were you just having a laugh by posting the setlist? LOLZ. The only unknown would be an encore. Amazing they played one at all.

Adam laughed at Jimmy for checking the setlist during the Raise portion, but then both of them kept peeking at it during the Mezcal Head set.

I was there - encore no joke. I was halfway expecting some energy lag towards the end, considering the two full sets - but they were on the ball all night.

Mikey Jones is a perfect fit for the band.

I only got "Duress" due to my inebriation and position in the room: https://youtu.be/WpQs2Ta1Jbc

Was at the Carrboro concert at Cat's Cradle last night (Sept. 14), and in spite of a shamefully small turnout (only about 200 people showed up), the Swervies absolutely crushed it.

As others have posted about this tour, Mikey is just a devastating force on the drums: nothing fancy, just always in the pocket and pushing the songs forward with crushing power. Adam and Jimmy were great at laying down layers of guitar textures and squalling fills and leads, and Mick was solid on his fat-sounding Thunderbird bass. But,as always with SWD, it is the songs that make the difference.

Encore: Husker Du's "Green Eyes" as a tribute to the recently departed Grant Hart. In fact, the Swervie's dedicated the entire set to Grant.
