THE SWORD Strips Down For 'Low Country' Album

THE SWORD Strips Down For 'Low Country' Album

Following nine months of touring in support of their critically acclaimed album "High Country", Austin, Texas metal luminaries THE SWORD returned to the studio to experiment with a stripped-down acoustic presentation of the LP's songs. The result, produced by bassist Bryan Richie and mixed by J. Robbins, is "Low Country", which will see a worldwide release on September 23. The album features cover art by Richey Beckett.

To support "Low Country", THE SWORD will be heading out as direct support for OPETH from September 29 to October 26. Bracketing the OPETH tour will be ten headline shows. The first leg, set to take place between September 23 and September 28, will feature RUBY THE HATCHET as support. The second leg, October 28 through November 1, will feature C AVERAGE as support.

"High Country" debuted at #14 upon release in August 2015. The band hit the road immediately following the release, doing an extensive tour of Europe, followed by two full American/Canadian tours and a tour of Australia.
