    Austin, Texas-based hipster metal darlings The Sword are gearing up for the release of their third album, Warped Riders, which is due out August 24 through longtime label Kemado Records. The single, "Tres Brujas," is due to be released online on July 6 so check your local web listings if you want to check out some leaden, low end riffs. But wait, there's more. The track is the first part of a video trilogy helmed by former Sword collaborators Artificial Army, which will launch in August. The second and third chapters of the saga will be for "Lawless Lands" and "Night City." Okay, sounds interesting, to say the least.

    In other The Sword news, the band will be the only opening band for Ozzy when he plays the iTunes Roundhouse Festival in London on July 3. Their performance will be recorded and then available for purchase through iTunes in early July. So big ups to the band for snagging an opening gig for the Prince of Darkness and for having a show sold on iTunes. Bring it.

    Have you heard of The Sword before? If not, what the eff are you waiting for?
