Self-funded album planned

Michael Gira has ended months of speculation among the dour of heart and confirmed that his seminal noise/post punk/malevolent gothic troupe are back together, though without core member Jarboe.

According to the band's mySpace, Swans will release a CD of acoustic demos of new material and live Michael Gira DVD in a limited run of 1000 hand-made copies "in order to raise money for the swans recordings/offset the huge costs involved".

You can hear a new track called 'Jim' over at over at the Swans mySpace. Looking forward to the addition of infernal machines, it must be said.
