We’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of Swans‘ next dose of beautiful insanity ever since 2012, when The Seer left our ears literally blown away. Two snippets have been released so far but now we can fully dive into the troubling and enticing audio chaos that is Swans.

What can be said about such diverse and unexpected artists? Mainly that this album is no different from their already impressive track record, delivering an intoxicating mix of sounds that is impossible to pin point. The album even features a 34 minute long track, titled ‘Bring the Sun/Toussaint L’Ouverture’, which will challenge your very emotional makeup.
