The Sword Unleash "Lawless Lands" Video

Texas metal titans The Sword have just unleashed their outer space video for "Lawless Lands," directed by Artificial Army. It is the second part of the video trilogy they've filmed for their new album, "Warp Riders" (out now on Kemado Records). The clip is a '70s sci-fi inspired trip that provides a visual companion to the album's epic storyline, though it's just as fun to watch without following the plot. If you didn't catch the first part in the series, watch the video for "Tres Brujas."

Having opened for legends like Metallica, Ozzy, and Motorhead, and with songs featured in multiple editions of Guitar Hero, The Sword have cemented their reputation as one of the most significant metal bands of their generation. The guys are currently on a headlining US tour in support of "Warp Riders," which debuted at #49 on the Billboard Top 200. The album was produced by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Pearl Jam, Isis) and finds the band expanding beyond pure metal to incorporate hard rock a la Thin Lizzy and ZZ Top into their scorching sound.
