Liturgy at Pitchfork Fest 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
Liturgy

As discussed, Swans have upcoming dates including a hometown show in NYC at Warsaw on December 12. Since we last spoke, it's been announced that NYC black metal band Liturgy will open that show, which is a great double bill. Previously, both bands' drummers contributed to this year's Ben Frost album. Tickets for that show are still available. Swans have also added several more tour dates, including many in North America such as the Big Ears Festival. Updated dates are listed below.

Swans are also releasing the "Oxygen" EP next week (11/25) via Young God/Mute which features four alternate versions of that track which appeared on this year's To Be Kind. It includes an edit by Mute founder Daniel Miller, which you can stream below, as well as a live recording from Primavera, an early version recorded by Michael Gira at his house, and an acoustic version.

That song stream and the list of dates below...
