The Sword Announce European Tour For January 2013, European Album Deal

It's that time of year when we start getting the first pieces of metal album and tour news for 2013 and true to form, we have an update of that nature from no less than one of Metallica's favourite bands. Texan metallers The Sword have announced not only plans for a tour across the UK & Europe right at the start of 2013 but also news of a European release for their new album. The Sword & their US label Razor & Tie have come to an agreement with the very well known Napalm Records to release "Apocryphon", the brand new release from The Sword across Europe. To promote Apocryphon, the band will be heading across the Atlantic for a three week European trek, starting in the UK and taking in all of Northern Europe, including a healthy length stay in Scandanavia. Full details of the tour dates can be found just below:

Nik works in music PR, he wanted to be famous but genetics determined a managerial route instead. He put his energy into working out how to design stuff, build web stuff and string a decent series of words together. He is a big fan of original and unique sounding bands, loving a good melody and anthem - although he has been known to listen to 90s glam rock in private.
