VIDEO NEWS: The Sword Reveal ‘Winter’s Wolves’ From ‘Conquest Of Quarantine’ Lockdown Session Series
The Sword have revealed the next instalment of their Conquest Of Quarantine lockdown session series. This week the band have released a session for Winter’s Wolves.
“The original demo title of this song was A Druid’s Curse, and the lyrics are in fact intended to be a literal curse,” explains frontman JD Cronise. “Although it was written in the early 2000’s, I find it to be even more relevant today.”
“Envision large plumes of cannabis smoke or get DIY on it and create your own as you listen to this quarantine rendition of our classic track Winter’s Wolves,” adds bassist Bryan Richie. “It was just as fun and lively as the original version we cranked out in my bedroom some fifteen years ago now! Hope y’all enjoy!”
The Sword have recently released two compilations: Conquest of Kingdoms and Chronology: 2006-2018.
