New York art-rock legends Swans confirm details for their first album in 13 years….
In January of this year the myspace named ‘swansaredead’ announced “Swans are not dead!” as Gira and Jarboe restarted the machine to release their twelfth studio album.:
Their latest effort to test listeners’ patience will be an eight track opus called My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky, released on September 21 on the band’s Young God Records.
After achieving their cult status, it seems Swans can now command more famous collaborators. This album will feature guests spots from Devendra Banhart and Mercury Rev’s Grasshopper.
My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky will be released on September 20. Gira said: “THIS IS NOT A REUNION. It’s not some dumb-ass nostalgia act. It is not repeating the past. After 5 Angels Of Light albums, I needed a way to move FORWARD, in a new direction, and it just so happens that reviving the idea of Swans is allowing me to do that.”
The tracklisting for the album is as follows:
‘No Words/ No Thoughts’
‘Reeling The Liars In’
‘You Fucking People Make Me Sick’
