Swans is hands down one of our favorite bands, primarily because there's something really admirable about a musical outfit known for performing live shows so loud that it's a normal, regular thing, for people in the audience to vomit. They're releasing a new album, The Seer, next month on Young God Records, and the special edition package contains a DVD of live performance videos, one of which we were given to premiere right here and now.
