The Sword return with new album Used Future: Stream

on March 23, 2018, 12:15am

Austin metal outfit The Sword return today with their new album, Used Future. Apple Music and Spotify users can now stream it in full.

The 13-track collection follows 2015’s High Country and was recorded in Portland, Oregon alongside producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, First Aid Kit). In an interview with Billboard, lead singer and guitarist J.D. Cronise revealed the band’s sound has evolved away from doom metal and now incorporates elements of Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, and Blackfoot.

“We have to do something that we find interesting and enjoyable,” Cronise stated. “And for me, the same old thing all the time just gets boring after a while. Our tastes have changed and evolved and matured over the years, and to me, everything we’ve done feels totally natural.”

He added, “I think what’s weird is people’s reactions of not really knowing what to make of [the new sound]. Which, in a way, I get, because it’s just not a thing that’s done very commonly these days. But for me, I can’t imagine it having gone any other way.”
