The Sword’s Kyle Shutt Launches Kickstarter For New Solo Album


With The Sword soon to be going on hiatus, the band’s guitarist Kyle Shutt will be shifting his focus to an upcoming solo release. He has launched this Kickstarter campaign with the hopes of raising $30,000 for the album, which should arrive in May of next year. Shutt plans to perform all the instruments on the album, as well as handle the vocal duties himself. He spoke of the project:

“I love producing albums and rolling up my sleeves to tackle big challenges. While wondering what to do with a mountain of material not necessarily fit for any band that I am in, I heard a tiny, very loud voice telling me to make a solo album in that very sense, solo! I’ll be hitting those drums, slapping that bass, singing those lyrics, and absolutely shredding that guitar.

If there’s something that makes a noise I like, I’m playing it. Now, while making albums is a load of fun, it’s also a load of work that, in 2018 doesn’t come cheap. That’s why I thought I’d ask you all be a part of the launching of this wacky solo career, which isn’t just stopping with this initial album. I’m starting with this record and will go wherever my inspiration takes me.

It‘s not easy being an artist these days, and I truly couldn’t do this without your support. So if you have the faith in me to do my part in saving rock ’n’ roll, pick up a record and a shirt and LET’S DO THIS THING!”

Later this year Shutt will be out with his Pink Floyd tribute project, Doom Side Of The Moon, on this mini-tour.
