Scene News: The SWORD set to slash and sludge down under this September!

Pre-sales start Thursday 3rd May @ 10am – ticket link provided below

Basking in the glow of the outstanding 5 star reviews for their latest album Used Future, The Sword bring their sonic journey in from the outer reaches of the galaxy to a city near you.[pullquote]“If you get the chance to catch The Sword on tour, definitely do it” Hysteria 9/4/2018[/pullquote] Inspired by classic rock originators such as Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, ZZ Top and classic era Metallica, the Sword have forged their own identity melding buzzsaw guitars, 60’s garage, 70’s psychedelia and a decent dollop of sludge with lyrics exploring mythology, science fiction literature and introspective philosophy. The result is a spellbinding concoction of gut wrenching bliss.

The Sword bring beauty and brutality evocative of rock’s golden age, but with a consciousness and bravura devastatingly shaped by these hammers of the gods for the 21st century and beyond.

They wanted their fervor and they got it.” Live Music Review 12/04/2018[/pullquote]
