October 22nd will see the release of the Sword’s forth album, Apocryphon, the band’s first on Razor and Tie Records. Spin Magazine premiered the first single from the album, “Veil of Isis,” and I understand that the band is putting the final touches on it. In the meantime, this trippy lyric video was created for “Apocryphon,” and it kind of continues with the same themes that came up on on Warp Riders – but with an increasingly prog rock feel. It should give you a good taste of what to expect from the new album.
The band will be touring to support the album on October 29th, starting in Corpus Christi, TX.
