U.S. heavy stoner rock band The Sword will release their sixth studio album, ‘Used Future‘, via Razor & Tie Records on March 23rd.
Two days prior to the release, The Sword will launch their latest tour in support of the album. The first date of the upcoming trek, taking place at Mohawk in the band’s hometown of Austin, Texas, will be live-streamed for fans.
The entire performance will be streamed live worldwide on YouTube, beginning at 9:40 PM ET / 8:40 PM CT. For those unable to watch live, the show will be archived. The show can be streamed here.
