The Sword - new album and UK tour

The Sword’s legacy in the metal world has been rapidly growing since they formed in 2003. Their recent stints opening for legends such as Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, and Motorhead has helped garner them praise from fans both young and old. Now on the heels of the release of 'Tres Brujas', the first single from their forthcoming new album, The Sword have set their sights on their next move – a headlining world tour in support of Warp Riders released on August 23rd through Kemado Records.

The band has amped up their sound on what is truly a behemoth of a new album. Produced by Matt Bayles (Pearl Jam, Mastodon, Isis), The Sword stretched themselves with the new material to touch on other forms of heavy rock in addition to the pure metal that they’re known for. Warp Riders is also the band’s first concept album, and consists of an epic sci-fi narrative loaded with dazzling imagery. Stay tuned for a video trilogy that will shine more light on the storyline.
