We Rose from Your Bed with the Sun in Our Head is a double live album by American post-punk band Swans.[1] Only 1000 copies of the album were sold, and each was numbered and signed personally by frontman Michael Gira.[3] The album was released to help support the upcoming Swans album, The Seer. Seven bonus tracks, demos to be featured on the upcoming album, The Seer were also released. It was re-released in 2012 as a 2-CD deluxe digipack without the bonus tracks.


The album was sold through the website of Young God Records, with a number of unique purchasing options. The purchasing options included an "executive producer" credit on The Seer, an original drawing by Michael Gira dedicated to the customer, the recording of a short, acoustic song praising the customer by Gira, and a "secret gift".[3]
