The Sword Unveil Video for “Tres Brujas” And Release Warp Riders

It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for! Warp Riders, the highly anticipated 3rd album by Austin, TX’s THE SWORD hits stores today via Kemado Records.

MySpace Music has the exclusive video premiere of the album’s first single, “Tres Brujas.” To make the video, THE SWORD headed into the hot California desert with Artificial Army (www.artificialarmy.com) and filmed the first video of their Post-Apocalyptic Western Trilogy that ties in themes of Warp Riders over the course of three videos – “Tres Brujas,” “Lawless Lands,” and “Night City.” It’s Seven Samurai crossed with The Magnificent Seven meets Mad Max filtered through the imagination of THE SWORD.

Watch the video HERE.

Warp Riders is amassing fantastic acclaim from fans and critics alike. Rolling Stone raves, “The Sword make metal so pure – so precise, so shredding, so full of doom – there’s something almost hyper-real about it.” Hard Rock magazine Revolver added, “doom, chugging thrash, and ruminating psychedelia… The intriguing sci-fi storyline that unites these 10 tracks is an added bonus.” And AltSounds.com said of the album’s first single, “’Tres Brujas’ is an instant, head banging retro metal classic.”

THE SWORD will hit the road, touring the US, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Europe this fall, including an opening spot for metal gods Metallica during the Australia, New Zealand, and Japanese legs. Visit the band’s website (www.swordofdoom.com) for more ticket information.
