"The new record is sweeter, too, shifting its focus from raging catharsis to eye-widening beauty." - Pitchfork

"... simmering and meditative rather than pulverising and explosive" - MOJO 4*

"...legendary art-noise eviscerators return in another new guise" - Metal Hammer 4*

"... maintaining a power they never lost ... a seismic force in experimental rock" - Best Fit

The new album, leaving meaning., was written and produced by Michael Gira and features contributions from recent and former Swans, members of Angels of Light, as well as Guest Artists Anna and Maria von Hausswolff, Ben Frost, The Necks, Baby Dee, and a Hawk and a Hacksaw.

Michael Gira explains, "leaving meaning. is the first Swans album to be released since I dissolved the lineup of musicians that constituted Swans from 2010 - 2017. Swans is now comprised of a revolving cast of musicians, selected for both their musical and personal character, chosen according to what I intuit best suits the atmosphere in which I'd like to see the songs I've written presented. In collaboration with me, the musicians, through their personality, skill and taste, contribute greatly to the arrangement of the material. They're all people whose work I admire and whose company I personally enjoy."
