Swans are old, but not dead yet; add more tourdates

This fall has seen a lot of awesome old dudes getting back together and touring — Pavement, Guided by Voices, and The Vaselines, to name a few. I, personally, was sorely disappointed to miss Swans’ date in Chicago this fall, as they joined the illustrious lineup of 2010 reunions (or the “reconstitution,” as Michael Gira stubbornly preferred to call it) sweeping across the country. Now that Swans fans have been given more time to obtain and memorize all songs from the new album on Young God, My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky (TMT Review), Gira has made the wise decision of adding more dates into 2011.
