SWANS have announced a remastered reissue of their ninth studio album, The Great Annihilator on Mute.

Both the vinyl (in the form of a download code) and CD will feature Drainland, Michael Gira’s debut solo album recorded at the same time as The Great Annihilator.

The album was entirely remastered by Doug Henderson, but only after Bill Rieflin (“honorary Swan“a revelation of great sonic effect”.

Band members and Jarboe and Bill Rieflin etc came and went, and somehow we crafted this thing into what it became.”
