On October 22nd, the Sword will release their fourth studio album, Apocryphon (Razor & Tie). To celebrate, the band is partnering with independent record stores nationwide for a special promotion: when fans buy the new album Apocryphon (on CD or vinyl), they will receive a free, limited-edition, hand-numbered version of the new Sword album on cassette tape (while supplies last).

This promotion is a partnership with Record Store Day’s ongoing collaboration with participating independent retailers. To find the nearest store, please visit: www.mymetalclub.com or www.recordstoreday.com.

Apocryphon is also now available for pre-order in multiple formats at Swordofdoom.com.
