Although the charismatic Swans leader Michael Gira has already laid his band to rest a number of times in the past – the last occasion being in 2017 - Swans is now alive and kicking harder than ever. In yet another form. Gira: ‘Swans is now comprised of a revolving cast of musicians, selected for both their musical and personal character.’ And that 'revolving cast of musicians' looks impressive on their soon to be released album ‘Leaving Meaning'. Think: Anna von Hausswolff, Ben Frost (also present in AB), Baby Dee and The Necks.
