The Sword know no boundaries. JD Cronise [vocals, guitar], Kyle Shutt[guitar], Bryan Richie [bass], andSantiago Vela III [drums] take their own conception of heavy psychedelic rock beyond the realms of perception. You feel the pounding in your ears and you feel that vibration in your diaphragm, but this is an attack that is wholly joyous and uplifting.

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.

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 21stcentury and beyond.
