Austin, Texas metal luminaries The Sword are kicking it into high gear as the release of their highly anticipated third full-length, "Warp Riders" (August 24; Kemado Records) rapidly approaches. The band has finally revealed the album's artwork and will be releasing additional visual companions in the form of an upcoming picture disc and an epic video trilogy.
C.C.R. performed at Woodstock at three in the morning, following the Grateful Dead. They were so unhappy with their performance that they forbade the use of it in the Woodstock motion picture and anything promoting the movie. They didn't want their performance on the album, either, but Fantasy Records sealed the deal by not agreeing on royalties, which made sure they were not included on the album.
