The Sword at SXSW 2013 (more by Sara Linder)
The Sword

Apocryphon was released last fall, and ever since then The Sword have kept moving. The Austin quartet will spend a month on the road this summer, kicking off a string of North American dates in their native Texas and heading westward with Castle and American Sharks. Dates include both coasts, a hefty chunk of Canada, and very little to no love for the Midwest. Look for the tour to hit Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 18, tickets go on AmEx presale at noon and regular sale on Friday (6/14) at noon.

After the summer dates, look for The Sword to hit the road with Clutch. All tour dates and some video is below.

This is a hard one. The Cult play the same night as my closest local show. Then the next night neighboring state, 500 miles round trip..

This band sounds like Black Sabbath, but don't get me wrong, it is not like they copied them, it is just that they sound like early Sabbath. And, well, it is awesome!

TRUE to the core heavy metal. It's like listening to a modern Black Sabbath.
