Swans announce some details on a new live album, plan to record studio LP in October, and more!

Former ugly ducklings and now beautiful band, Swans, have announced, well, a ton of shit. According to Michael Gira, a new handmade live CD and DVD is set for release in August or September to be titled Not Here/Not Now. Gira will be mixing and editing the compilation taken from “seemingly hundreds” of live recordings.

Similarly to how previous live albums I Am Not Insane and We Rose… funded the production of studio albums, Not Here/Not Now is planned to do the same for a new record that Gira plans to begin recording in October. This record is to likely be released in 2014, though Gira commented, “God knows how long it will take.”

On top of all that good news, Gira will also be touring solo next March! And below we’ve listed all the shows happening NOW.
