The Sword Begin ‘Conquest Of Quarantine’ Live Series With T-Rex Cover


The Sword have begun a three-part quarantined weekly live session series with footage for their cover of T-Rex‘s “Children Of The Revolution” kicking it off. The band have dubbed the series ‘Conquest Of Quarantine‘ and will be releasing a quarantined performance weekly for the immediate future. The band’s bassist Bryan Richie commented:

“It was a lot of fun getting together with Kyle and Jimmy to record these tracks, and thanks to the miracles of modern technology we were able to lay down a wicked session with JD all the way from North Carolina. Crank this from the comforts of your couch, Conquest of Quarantine brought to you with minimal overdubs and maximum rocking.”
