Obscure 1996 extended play from Michael Gira's experimental noise rock outfit Swans issued on vinyl for Record Store Day 2018! The previously CD-only Die Tür Ist Zu was originally released in Germany in 1996 by Rough Trade and included early German-language versions of songs that would end up on Soundtracks For The Blind later that year, plus radio sessions and live recordings from 1994-1995. This first-ever vinyl pressing comes courtesy of Gira's own Young God imprint and spreads the EP's 7 tracks onto 3 sides of vinyl, with a custom etching designed by Gira on the fourth side.
