Swans’ Michael Gira On Dissolving His Band’s Current Lineup

Vanity Fair: When you announced The Glowing Man’s release and touring schedule, you said it would be the final offering from this particular lineup of Swans. What went into that decision?
Michael Gira: Um, seven years of being in the same place with the same people all the time. [laughs] It’s been a very fruitful relationship, at least from my point of view. And it has produced some of the best music in which I’ve ever been involved. I just feel like as a band -as a classic formation “band” where it’s the same members all the time -it’s kind of running its course. And I think we all agree
Here's Glowing Man from the new album's accompanying DVD via Dangerous Minds. NB Ron that the film is just under two hours of which this is just one track

The rehearsals have just started for the world tour and I look forward to the Swans machine rolling down to Australia early next year
