Following a successful two-year period that saw Austin, Texas metal luminaries THE SWORD release their fifth studio album, “High Country”, followed by the acoustic album “Low Country” and the live album “Greetings From…” , along with extensive worldwide touring, the band has commenced recording its new studio album titled “Used Future”. The disc is being produced by Tucker Martine (MY MORNING JACKET, THE DECEMBERISTS, MODEST MOUSE) at Flora Recording And Playback in Portland, Oregon. Recording will be completed in early November for an early 2018 release via Razor & Tie. As always, the band will support the release with a worldwide tour. Tour plans will be announced shortly.
“Greetings From…” was released on May 5 via Razor & Tie. The band recorded all of the shows on its fall 2016 tour with OPETH and chose nine songs to make up the track listing on the disc.
