The Sword Reveal New Album’s Art


And there it is. I think it’s rather glorious, man. Mystical, sensual…inviting. Yet keeping with the band’s usual aesthete.

I quite dig it.

The Sword’s new album, Apocryphon, will be release October 22 on Razor & Tie.

And yes, there will be a deluxe version of the album available…with bonus tracks. Those songs include four live tracks and one cover…of ZZ Top’s “Cheap Sunglasses.”

The deluxe edition’s also part of a special limited edition pre-order bundle for the new album.

Only 500 of that set will be produced, and feature a glow in the dark 12-inch vinyl copy of the disc; three autographed lithographs; a T-shirt; and a digital download code.

Go here for that goodness.
