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.

You can watch the video here and download an MP3 of "Fire Lances Of The Ancient Hyperzephyrians" here.

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.
