Band Practice With Swans

Last month, before FADER Issue 70 hit stands, we had the privilege of meeting one of America's greatest bands at its rehearsal space in Brooklyn, just before going on tour. Michael Gira of Swans, along with his band including a multi-talented instrumentalist named Thor and a "token German" named Christophj (Gira's words, not ours), opened his rehearsal space doors wearing a cowboy hat. "You can film a whole song if you want, but I have to warn you, it's going to be seventeen minutes long." We ended up chopping it down a bit, hope that's okay. But we also hope that you take this as an awesomely loud, claustrophobic, insane opportunity to witness what band practice is like for legends.
