In 2012, Swans gave us a well needed punch with their excellent LP, The Seer. It seems Michael Gira has no plans on slowing down.

Gira revealed that, in addition to touring, Swans begins recording their follow up to The Seer in October. Prior to heading into the studio, Gira is also putting together a Swans live CD/DVD, titled Not Here/Not Now. He's currently digging through live recordings, editing and mixing and then "physically making by hand these things in august/september" according to the press release. All this and a solo tour in March.

The Seer is available now. [via Pitchfork]
