Info


The Seer is the twelfth studio album by American experimental rock band Swans and was released on August 28, 2012 by Gira's own record label Young God Records. Producer and frontman Michael Gira funded the recording of the album with the sales of We Rose from Your Bed with the Sun in Our Head. While the previous studio album My Father Will Guide Me up a Rope to the Sky was seen as a cross between Gira's solo project Angels of Light and late Swans, The Seer strayed away from Angels of Light's more.

Avatar 10. A Piece of the Sky 11. Apostate A NOTE FROM MICHAEL GIRA The Seer took 30 years to make. Its the culmination of every previous Swans album as well as any other music Ive ever made, been involved in or imagined. But its unfinished, like the songs themselves. Its one frame in a reel. The frames blur, blend and will eventually fade. The Seer - Swans.

Their second studio album since re-forming is among the group's longest and it manages to expand on their sound while simultaneously summarizing everything they've recorded before. Swans are a band that conjure primal forms of power. Swans are a band that conjure primal forms of power: thunder and lightning, fire and brimstone, master over slave, predator over prey.

The Seer is the twelfth studio album by American post-punk band Swans, released on August 28, 2012. The album features vocals from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalist Karen O, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker of Low, members of AkronFamily, Ben Frost, Grasshopper from Mercury Rev and former Swans member Jarboe. Frontman Michael Gira described the album as taking 30 years to. Two years after My Father Will Lead Me Up to a Rope to the Sky, The Seer is the most sprawling, ambitious, thoughtfully conceived and tightly performed recording in the band's catalog - also not hyperbole - over two discs, two hours, and 11 tracks. And it is not an endurance test, but an argument for compulsive listening. The Seer. Released August 28, 2012. The Seer Tracklist. The Seer Q&A. Band Name Swans. Album Name The Seer.
