The Sword have officially cancelled their 2018 Australian tour. The band were set to perform in October, after initially pushing the tour back from September.
Announcing the cancellation via Facebook, they said:
“After 15 years of nonstop recording and touring, The Sword will take a hiatus following their U.S shows at the beginning of October. The Australian tour scheduled for the end of October has been cancelled. The band apologizes to their Australian fans, but feel it is time for a breather.”
So it seems the band are also going on an extended hiatus.
I can honestly say, I am sufficiently disappointed. The new album Used Future was great (our review here). So we can only hope the band will get back together soon, to make it up to their Australian fans.
I will assume details of refunds will be coming shortly via David Roy Williams and we will update as soon as they those details are made available.
