The Sword – 2008/09 tour dates (some Metallica, some not)

by Black Bubblegum

Do you think he got it done after St. Anger?
Metallica tat

In between the dates at Nassau Coliseum (1/29) and Prudential Center (1/31, 2/1), The Sword will opt to NOT go shopping around Soho (like Metallica might) in lieu of another date in the NYC area. Tickets go on AMEX presale 11/19 and regular sale on 11/21 at noon for a January 30th show by The Sword at Bowery Ballroom. It’s one of a few shows the band added to fill in the holes between Metallica dates. Some of the added dates are also with Lamb Of God who is also on tour with Metallica. Others are with Year Long Disaster.

Lamb of God recently announced details of their new album, due in 2009. The Sword recently released a video for “How Heavy This Axe”. That video, and all tour dates, below…
