The Sword to release live album

Posted by on April 7, 2017

Since The Sword released High Country about a year and a half ago, it seems like they’ve decided to fill the time before their sixth album to release some stuff to hold over fans. Low Country, an acoustic version of most of that album, was released last year, for those that like their stoner rock unplugged. And in May, they’ll be releasing the first live album in their career. 

Greetings From… will be released on May 5th on Razor & Tie. Pre-order for the album begins today for the nine-track album, which was recorded last year when they were on tour with Opeth. The release of the live album coincides with several headlining dates with Croy & the Boys, then will be followed by shows with Clutch and Lucero. They’ll also have some headlining dates with Pontiak, then in July will have some headlining dates with Big Jesus. You can seee those dates below, and preorder Greetings From… on iTunes and get an instant grat download of “Maiden Mother & Crone” here. You can also pre-order it in a variety of bundles that include shirts, vinyl and more here.
