The Sword Announce New Album + Tour, Release First Single


Dark stormy sky as a distant thunderstorm approaches on the horizon over a dirt road and farm field.

Get ready to party like it’s 1969: The Sword have announced that they’ll release their next album, Used Future, on March 23. They’ve also released the first single from that album, “Deadly Nightshade,” which — SHOCKER! — sounds like old Sabbath. You can check it out below, or get it as an instant download when you pre-order the album on iTunes. If you’re iTunes-averse and patiently wait to own the song, you can also pre-order the album from the band or their label.

If you need new socks, you can get those from The Sword as well.
