The Sword announces tour

Dynamic, Austin, TX based quartet The Sword has announced a U.S. headlining tour, its first in nearly a year. The scheduled 17 city trek will launch this December and will see the critically acclaimed metal band perform many of the brand new songs that will comprise the bulk of its highly anticipated new album, due in early-2008 via NYC's Kemado Records. Unquestionably one of heavy music's most talked about new bands, The Sword deliver explosive songs, gripping live performances and a unique vision that combines metal's beloved past with the forward-thinking enthusiasm of today's hard music elite. The band will enter a Texas studio shortly to record its as-yet-untitled sophomore album and plans to up the ante with its new material, which is being described as "more ambitious, more accomplished and simply bigger." The tour dates will be announced in the coming days. Support on The Sword tour will be provided by Valient Thorr and San Francisco's Black Cobra. The first-announced dates are as follows: 12/6 New York, NY @ Bowery Ballroom 12/7 Philadelphia, PA @ First Unitarian Church 12/8 Cambridge, MA @ Middle East (downstairs)
