Updated: The Official Press Release follows the post.
It's pretty appropriate that the first ''new'' post here on The Rock Father™'s own site relates to one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. While their ''big announcement'' scheduled for 1pm CST is running late, I can confirm that METALLICA will headline their own ORION MUSIC + MORE Festival on June 23 & 24, 2012 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
THE SWORD is back, and goddamn if they aren't mighty as hell.
On the Austin bands latest effort, WARP RIDERS, The Sword presents a concept album brooding with science-fiction from front to back, wrapped in a tasty nugget of hardcore stoner metal. From the moment the artwork hit the web looking like a long forgotten cover for an early 1980's ATARI 2600 game cartridge, my interest was piqued. Would there be a let down? Not hardly.
