The Sword will appear Monday, September 3rd at 9 PM ET/PT on Travel Channel's highly rated show Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations-The Final Tour. The show was shot in March in Austin, Texas at the SXSW music festival. Check out a clip from the show below.
In the episode, the band takes the opportunity to introduce Bourdain to their branded hot sauce "Tears of Fire." As of Tuesday September 4th, the sauce will be available for purchase HERE.
Creator of the sauce, Brian Rush, says the following, "They wanted something hot, but with a good flavor. I already make a really hot red habanero sauce (August in Austin), so it was just a matter of taking that over the top. I added the infamous Ghost Chile, the hottest pepper in the world along with some extra spice to give it another dimension of zing. This is an other-worldly sauce with both flavor and heat, named after a killer song for one of the best bands Austin has to offer."
Apocryphon, the band's fourth album and first for new label Razor & Tie will be released October 23rd and followed by a U.S tour. Apocryphon was produced and engineered by J. Robbins (Clutch, Jawbox) and recorded at Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, MD. The album will feature cover art by famed comic book artist J.H. Williams III (Batwoman, Promethea). Tour details will be announced soon.
