Rock band The Sword has released a music video for “The Veil Of Isis”, which comes off their latest album Apocryphon (iTunes). The video was directed by Simon Chan (Mars Volta, Coheed and Cambria), who has done two previous The Sword music videos.
The Sword are also currently on tour. You can watch the video and check out tour dates below. READ MORE
I’m going to have to label this as awesome. When fans purchase a copy of Texas metal band The Sword‘s new album Apocryphon, they will also get a free, limited-edition, hand-numbered version of the new album on cassette tape (while supplies last). This promotion is only being offered through independent record stores and is part of Record Store Day. You can see if your local record shop is participating by checking here.
This is just such a cool little thing to do, in my opinion. Cassettes are basically never used these days, so the novelty of this is pretty much sky high. You can see a picture of the cassette below. You can also pre-order the album in multiple bundles here.
The Sword will be hitting the road for a 37-date US tour with support coming from Gypsyhawk. Check out the tour dates below. READ MORE
