The Sword Release ‘Children Of The Revolution’; First Live Performance Since 2018

Austin, TX heavy riff masters, The Sword have released footage from their first live performance together since the band went on hiatus in 2018. The first track, taken from their virtual, lockdown jam session shows the band putting their own awesome, riff-heavy spin on the classic T-Rex classic, “Children of the Revolution”, which premiered with Consequence Of Sound this morning and can be found here

The Sword’s triumphant live return from hiatus was scheduled to be with Primus this summer as part of their mammoth A Tribute To Kings US trek. But the pandemic had other plans. Not wishing to deprive fans of the live performances they’ve been waiting so long to see, The Sword got creative and so was birthed the Conquest Of Quarantine lockdown session.

Explains bassist Bryan Richie, “It was a lot of fun getting together with Kyle and Jimmy to record these tracks, and thanks to the miracles of modern technology we were able to lay down a wicked session with JD all the way from North Carolina. Crank this from the comforts of your couch, Conquest of Quarantine brought to you with minimal overdubs and maximum rocking.”

Today’s release of “Children Of the Revolution” will be followed by two further clips, each released a week apart, so be sure to keep it locked to their socials so you don’t miss the full epic session or subscribe at YouTube.

Thankfully, fans will still be able to catch the The Sword in person with Primus on the rescheduled A Tribute To Kings tour in 2021, appearing for the dates listed below.
