In a quick announcement on their official Facebook page, The Sword told their fans they’d be going on hiatus once they finish their US-based shows in October, cancelling their Australian tour later that month. According to the statement, the band “feel it is time for a breather.”
One can only speculate on the reasons for this quick announcement, especially so soon after an album release and smack dab in the middle of a tour. Hopefully it’s only temporary, and the band can go back to their signature sci-fi concept albums with nary a feathered hairdo ruffled.
