Swans's Filth to be pressed to vinyl again

Along with announcing a show at London's Roundhouse next year, Swans's Michael Gira has also let it be known that Filth, the group's first album from 1983, will be remastered for a vinyl reissue. It will be available via Young God Records in the US, and on Mute everywhere else.

The Roundhouse show is scheduled for 15 May next year, and tickets are on sale here. Gira writes: "For me, this is a special show. Upon learning that both Pink Floyd and Soft Machine graced this stage, my intestines definitely broiled with a secret pleasure."

More details on the show here, and info on the repress of Filth incoming here.
