New album by Swans with a ridiculously awesome title (as pointed out by  Pitchfork) of “My Father Will Guide Me Up a Rope to the Sky” is set for release on September 21st via Michael Gira’s label Young God Records.
Gira commented on the album:
“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 revivifying the idea of Swans is allowing me to do that.”
The album will feature contributions from Norman Westberg, Bill Rieflin, Christoph Hahn, and Phil Puleo (all of whom were playing with Swans in the past), as well as Chris Pravdica (Flux Information Sciences/Services) and Thor Harris (Shearwater). Gira’s three year old daughter Saoirse is also going to make an appearance on the record.
