The Sword releasing ‘Used Future,’ touring

The Sword Used Future

Austin rockers The Sword will release their sixth album, Used Future, on March 23 via Razor & Tie. It was produced by Tucker Martine, (whose recent credits include The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, and Modest Mouse), and the first single is “Deadly Nightshade,” which is another dose of The Sword’s riffy, ’70s-inspired rock. Listen below.

The Sword will begin a tour in their hometown on 3/21 at Mohawk, and they’ll land in NYC on May 3 at Music Hall of Williamsburg with The Shelter People. Tickets for the MHOW show go on sale Friday (2/23) at noon. All dates are listed below.

UPDATE (2/23): The Sword released another single, “Twilight Sunrise,” and revealed the full second leg of tour dates:
