Swans Reuniting For Tour, New Album

    Seminal New York noise rockers Swans have announced via their MySpace that they are reforming, planning a tour and new album. Leader Michael Gira notes that sales of a new largely acoustic set, which will include two live DVDs and a CD and will be limited to 1000 copies, will be used to raise money for a new album and a new tour. If sales of said DVD/CD combo go well enough, the new Swans album should be out in late 2010, prefaced by a tour this summer.  According to Gira it will be out very soon, and he should know, since he’s hand-packaging them. So people, get buying. We need more Swans in our lives. [Stereogum]
