Swans’ next album to be the last for current iteration, future uncertain

Swans' next album to be the last for current iteration, future uncertain

“WELCOME TO MISERY, MY LITTLE CHICKPEAS.”

Having just completed the last leg of a 14-month tour supporting their epic To Be Kind, Swans can be certain about one thing: no more Burger King on the road! What’s not certain, however, is where Swans will go from here. Michael Gira took to Facebook to announce that the next Swans album and supporting tour will be the final for the group’s current iteration. “Not really sure what the next step will be after that, but that’s perhaps a good thing,” writes Gira.

Swans will soon be releasing a live album called The Gate in order to fund the next release, which Gira describes as “bound to be an insatiable beast.” More details as they arrive.
