Stereogum has premiered the viral version of The Sword's new video for "Fire Lances Of The Ancient Hyperzephyrians." The video is set in a post-apocalyptic world, thousands of years after the end of human civilization. A new race is born - one that has no idea that man had once ruled. The directors, Mike Colao and Josh Litwhiler, used a technique called "rotoscoping", where they traced over live-action film movement, frame by frame. The result is a visually captivating look into what could be the future of the human race as we know it.
Yesterday also marked the release of the band's two-song, 10" picture disc. Although already sold out through Kemado, you can purchase the songs on iTunes.
