Swans Announce Live Record ‘The Gate’ To Fund New Album | Music News

 

American experimental rock band Swans has announced that a live record entitled The Gate will be released later this year. Michael Gira, Swans’ head honcho, stated that The Gate is essentially a money-machine to fund a new record, which will be recorded in September. Gira stated that it would be the final Swans record for “this version… of swans”. Gira followed that he was “not really sure what the next step will be after that, but that’s perhaps a good thing”. Swans’ reissue of their 1983 record Filth was released in May, and is available for purchase now.

 

Read Gira’s full statement here: “Just got home comatose after finishing up the final leg of our 14 month tour for Swans To Be Kind album. We have come to your town, though it’s doubtful we have partied down. It has been a privilege to be inside the sound that on some nights seems to create itself of its own accord, and it’s gratifying that many of you have conveyed to us that it’s been a positive experience for you too… Next step: Sept 1 we commence a new Swans album. This will be the final Swans album (and subsequent tour) for this version / iteration of Swans. Not really sure what the next step will be after that, but that’s perhaps a good thing… We’ll be making a live album/fundraiser (called The Gate) soon, in order to raise the necessary – somewhat daunting – capital for the studio album, which is bound to be an insatiable beast… more soon, Thanks and Love! – Michael Gira“.

I am a recent Ancient History graduate and am now slowly making my way into the music industry. Right now I’m stretching my journalistic muscles and learning my way around the business. Musically speaking I’m all over the place, with a heavy upbringing of dad-rock, branching into heavy metal in my teens and all things electronic in my early twenties. In my free time I love creating and playing music, reading and trying (and failing) to sculpt myself into an Adonis at the gym.
