Austin, Texas. That’s where everyone is this week at SxSW festival. We mean EVERYONE. Even Metallica are there doing a “secret show” that’s about as secret as the secret that beer makes you drunk.
The Sword are from Austin. The Sword have been touring with Metallica and now they’re re-releasing Gods Of The Earth and Age Of Winters in a fancy boxset package thing on April 6th. There’s a sticker in there too.
That sounds so cold and calculating, doesn’t it. In all fairness, they are just trying to squeeze some cash out of some new fans but fucking rightfully so. EVERYONE SHOULD ALREADY KNOW WHO THE SWORD ARE. You should all have at least bought a tshirt by now.
If you haven’t done this, you should watch this video at least and then go see them play live. Dates are underneath the video.
Watch the video to ‘Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians’ by The Sword
