Great news about Strange Stones’ fav-o-rite metal band (and fellow Austinites) The Sword:
The Sword has signed a new, multi-album worldwide deal with New York City based label, Razor & Tie. After releasing three critically acclaimed albums on Kemado Records, the Austin TX based quartet featuring guitarist/vocalist J.D. Cronise, guitarist Kyle Shutt, bassist Bryan Richie, and new drummer Santiago “Jimmy” Vela III will commence recording their fourth album in late June with a projected release date of fall 2012.
The new studio album will be supported by extensive global touring that will stretch well into 2013.

Here’s to hoping the next album is at least as awesome as the three that have come before it! And once this drops, be sure to catch ’em on tour when they come through your town. They put on one hell of a show.
Now here’s some vintage Sword to keep your axe sharp…
