The Sword at Terminal 5, 2011 (more by Greg Cristman)

Austin's The Sword will spend Halloween on the road as part of a US tour that extends to Thanksgiving and on until right before the holidays. The band is celebrating the release of their new baby Apocryphon, their fourth LP due on 10/22 which was produced by the great J.Robbins (Jawbox, etc). Join the celebration in NYC at Webster Hall on November 14Tickets go on AMEX presale at noon today (9/5) with regular sale hitting on Friday (9/7). All tour dates, which include a stop at Fun Fun Fun Fest, are below.

Austin favorites Eagle Claw will join the band on multiple dates of the US tour (including NYC), alongside Cali hard-rock crew Gypsyhawk who released their latest LP Revelry & Resilience last week via Metal Blade. Stream a track from that below.

While we're on the subject of The Sword, did you catch them on Sunday's episode of No Reservations along with Sleigh Bells and Ume? If so, you might have caught a flash of Ume ripping out solos at the BV HotelVegan party during SXSW. Check out some clips from that episode, including Ume eating chicken testes (no shit), alongside all tour dates below.
