Looking forward to this! They opened with the title track when I saw them live in Edinburgh in August, Swans definitely seem to be on a creative roll….

I adore The Seer. I must confess to not knowing Swans pre-Seer. Embarrassing I know. I wonder if the studio versions of tour songs will be radical departures from what we have heard.

Man, you really need to spend the time between now and the new album catching up on all the old Swans albums. Start with My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky and go back from there. It's my current #1 Swans record actually.

This is big news.

And yes, the songs will be very different than their early live versions. I can pretty much guarantee it.

Yes, indeed, it's ridiculous that I don't know Swans pre-Seer. So much music out there to digest, so little time. But if To Be Kind does to me what The Seer did, I'll quit my life and devote my remaining years to some kind of Swans cult.

Just to warn you, it's probably going to be a pretty fucked up cult. Swans fans span all ages, cultures, and genres of freak. I'll bet the cult chicks are quite hot, though.

Two muthafuckin hours again though.....I can't wait. After The Seer, 2hrs seems so appropriate for Swans. They need this amount of time to properly express themselves. I hope there is a 40min track in there somewhere.

They have been making the best music of their lives since the Swans reboot. Amazing work, incredible performances. I have always loved them, but they truly are working on another plane now.

"Recorded in late 2013, the new album was put together at El Paso, Texas with John Congleton, produced by Gira himself."

If a band is going to record an album in Texas, is it too much to ask that they play a few shows in Texas? Of course, they may end up playing SXSW.

Musically speaking, all sorts things have been taking place out in El Paso. Some tours are playing El Paso and choosing to skip Houston, Austin and Dallas all together.

I'm really waiting for this album! The Seer was excellent from the beginning to the end. It was The Swans at its best. I hope this new album is even greater.

I will agree they are a different spirit without, Jarboe, but I'm with Savage, their recent trajectory is something to behold.

As a listener, I'm not sure if it's fair, but I believe a good deal of pressure is on the band with this newest release......can't wait to see where it all ends.
