Swans is celebrating their thirtieth anniversary in style. This year has seen the release of a 2xCD, The Seer, and a world tour, currently in progress. Even though Swans’s leader Michael Gira has reached sexagenarian status, the band still plays in a ferociously physical and thunderously intense fashion. Witness a sampling in the live video embedded below, an edited version of “The Apostate.”
