With the flourishing love of Swans rekindled thanks to 2012 LP The Seer and this year's To Be Kind, the experimental pioneers have confirmed the upcoming vinyl reissue of their 1983 debut Filth.

The project was remastered by Doug Henderson, who worked with the band on the two aforementioned LPs and helped re-master the group's 1988 album Feel Good Now. Henderson's previous credits include mastering efforts for Devendra Banhart, Antony and The Johnsons, and System Of A Down.

Speaking on the re-issue, which will be the first time Filth has been pressed in a remarkable 24 years, band figurehead Michael Gira issued a statement. He says: "This is all slabs of sound, rhythm and screaming/testifying. What more do you need? In a way, it was a reaction against Punk (and just about any other music you can think of), and the conservative notion that 3 chords were somehow necessary. I used to deny it vehemently at the time, but No Wave (I "hated" that scene too, for some reason I can't remember now) played a big role as the germ from which this music grew, along with The Stooges and Throbbing Gristle, of course. I wanted Swans to be "heavier" though - I wanted the music to obliterate - why, I don't remember! I think it just felt good."

Filth will be re-released October 27th and 28th, with pre-orders available now.

Earlier this month, Swans announced what will be the band's biggest headline show ever in the UK, being held May 21st, 2015 at London's Roundhouse. The group is currently touring throughout Europe, with dates listed here.
