· ‘The Seer’: “The Seer took 30 years to make. It’s the culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music I’ve ever made, been involved in or imagined. But it’s unfinished, like the songs themselves. It’s one frame in a reel. The frames blur, blend and will eventually fade. The songs began on an acoustic guitar, then were fleshed out with (invaluable) help from my friends, then were further tortured and seduced in rehearsals, live and in the studio, and now they await further cannibalism and force-feeding as we prepare to perform some of them live, at which point they’ll mutate further, endlessly, or perhaps be discarded for a while.” - Michael Gira.
· Special guests on ‘The Seer’ include Al and Mimi (Low) Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Jarboe.
· Swans have announced details of a UK tour in May and June, following the release of the new album ‘To Be Kind’. Support comes from Jenny Hval on all the May dates.
