The Sword continue their Conquest of Quarantine with a charged performance of their title track, 'The Warp Riders"

The latest installment of the Conquest of Quarantine series from The Sword delivers a searing performance of the title track from the band's 2010 LP, Warp RIders.

During the summer of 2020, the band converged remotely for the first time since their 2018 hiatus to debut a series of streaming performances that has since produced dynamic renditions of "Winter's Wolves," "Working Man," and the band's soaring take on the T-Rex classic, "Children of the Revolution."

The series was the result of a pivot, as the pandemic forced the band to postpone their highly anticipated Tribute to Kings Tour. Drummer Jimmy Vela explained,This was a new approach for us; the “Tribute to Kings” tour postponement led to us finding a different way to connect with our fans. It was fun and something we hadn’t tried yet…”

As for the landmark release, the track serves as an important turning point for The Sword, signifying the stylistic shift that saw the band transition from skilled stoner shred, to a timeless rock sound.
