Austin’s very own metalheads The Sword are set to open for metal legends Motorhead on March 16 at Stubb’s, as part of the South by Southwest conference’s kick-off festivities. And if that isn’t enough metal on metal news for you, the acclaimed four-piece has also been in the studio with producer Matt Bayles working on tracks for the follow-up to their 2008 breakthrough album, Gods of the Earth.

Look for the new Sword album later this year on Kemado Records. Songs inspired by drinking with Lemmy TBD.
