The Sword’s Kyle Shutt To Release Pink Floyd Tribute Album In August, “Money” Cover Posted


The Sword guitarist Kyle Shutt will be releasing an upcoming tribute album to Pink Floyd‘s legendary 1973 opus “The Dark Side Of The Moon” on August 04th. He will release it under the moniker of Doom Side Of The Moon with numerous guests joining him throughout it, including his The Sword bandmates Bryan Richie (bass) and Santiago Vela III (drums).

Vocalist Alex Marrero (Brownout/Brown Sabbath), saxophonist Jason Grey (Black Joe Lewis) and keyboardist Joe Cornetti (Croy & The Boys) also took part in the sessions. The eponymous album can now be pre-ordered here. It was engineered and mixed by Stuart Sikes (The White Stripes, Rocket From The Crypt). Shutt said of the inspiration for the project:

“The idea came to me after getting baked and wanting to hear a heavy version of ‘Time‘. I thought, why not just cover the whole album? After sitting down and working out some loose concepts, the arrangement for ‘Money‘ materialized and I realized that I could totally do this if I assembled the right band. It felt a little strange messing with someone’s legacy, but I’m treating it as a celebration of one of the greatest bands to ever rock, a party that everyone is invited to.”

The band will take to the stage at Emo’s in Austin, TX on August 05th to perform the effort in full. For now, you can hear their take on “Money” from the effort below:
