????HAILING FROM CHICAGO, The Swan King FORMED IN 2009 BY GUITARIST / VOCALIST DALLAS THOMAS (ALSO OF CIRCLE OF ANIMALS AND FORMERLY OF ASSCHAPEL), BASSIST JAMIE DRIER (FORMERLY OF 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 RIFFAGE OF HIGH ON FIRE. The Swan King'S DEBUT ALBUM, EYES LIKE KNIVES CONTINUES WHERE THE BAND'S 2009 GOOD DEEDS DEMO LEFT OFF. AN ALBUM OF FINELY CRAFTED SONGS, EYES LIKE KNIVES SHOWCASES The Swan King'S HEAVY RIFFING WITH AMBIGIOUS LYRICAL THEMES OF SEARCHING REALITY, HONEST CONFUSION, AND DECADENT HOPE. EYES LIKE KNIVES WAS RECORDED BY SANFORD PARKER (YOB, ZOROASTER, NACHTMYSTIUM) AT SEMAPHORE RECORDING AND MASTERED BY COLLIN JORDAN (MINISTRY, YAKUZA) AT THE BOILER ROOM.
