The Sword

Article By: Leanne Ridgeway

The Sword has officially announced the release of their new live album ‘Greetings From…‘ on Razor & Tie. We have details on pre-orders, the new official video for “Maiden, Mother & Crone“, as well as updated tour info.

The Sword is set to release their first-ever live album, ‘Greetings From…‘, on May 5th. The band recorded all the shows on their Fall 2016 support tour with Opeth, then chose nine songs from these recordings to make up the full tracklist for the new live album. The cover artwork and details are below, along with various links to order your preferred format.

There are several options and each one is a bit different. Those ordering on The Sword’s webstore can choose from multiple bundles, including a custom laminate, turntable slipmat, an exclusive t-shirt, and a limited edition signed lithograph of the album’s cover art. The Razor & Tie label’s webstore features bundles with an exclusive t-shirt and hoodie.

To support the release of the new live album, The Sword will do two legs of touring in May and July. All current dates are listed below. The May tour focuses mainly on the eastern half of the U.S.; eight shows supporting Clutch and Lucero, and eleven headline dates with support by Croy & The Boys, Mount Carmel, and Pontiak on various dates. The July dates focus on the West Coast and support on all these shows is provided by Big Jesus.

Wait, There’s More! There’s also a teaser that the band will begin recording their sixth studio album in September, and a planned release scheduled in early 2018.
