Angels of Light
Angels of Light are a rock group formed in 1997 by singer Michael Gira after he disbanded Swans, the group he'd founded in 1980. Angels of Light has marked a distinctly different style for Gira since he left Swans, most noticeably being musically more melodic and less brutal than his previous efforts, though no less emotionally draining.
Angels of Light include many New York City collaborators, including Dana Schechter of Bee and Flower , Kid Congo Powers of The Cramps, Larry Mullins of Toby Dammit , Bliss Blood of The Moonlighters, Thor Harris of Shearwater, and most recently the Brooklyn band Akron/Family .
All Angels of Light albums have been released on Michael Gira's label Young God Records.
