THE SWORD To Kick Off U.S. Headlining Tour Tonight

Critically acclaimed, Austin, TX-based quartet THE SWORD has announced a U.S. headlining tour, its first in nearly a year. The scheduled 17-city trek will launch tonight in Shreveport, LA and will see the dynamic metal band perform many of the brand new songs that will comprise the bulk of its highly anticipated new album, due in early 2008 via New York City's Kemado Records. Support on the trek will come from VALIENT THORR and San Francisco's BLACK COBRA.

Commented THE SWORD in a statement: "We urge the Eastern seaboard and areas lying between there and Austin, TX to take cover, secure provisions and prepare for battle. We come as a scythe taking down all in our path with fail proof deadly riffery. No prisoners."
