     The Sword did a very cool thing with the release of WARP RIDERS. They filmed a trilogy of very cool videos for the songs “Tres Brujas”, “Lawless Lands” , and “Nigth City” . Directed by Artificial Army, these videos have a cool vintage sci-fi look to them and I enjoy the hell out of them and thought you might as well. Check them out and tell me what you think!

Part one: “Tres Brujas”

Part two: “Lawless Lands”

Part three: “Night City”

Enjoy!

That’s right folks, they’re back! On November 12th The Stones will release GRRR! A compilation album that will include two NEW songs! “Doom And Gloom”, and “One More Shot”. There will be two formats: the regular version will include 50 tracks, and the super-deluxe version that has 80 (YES I SAID 80!) tracks.

“Doom And Gloom” is a welcome track to me as it breathes some of the old swagger back into the Stones music. It feels like they are back to playing dirty, nasty, sleazy ROCK N’ ROLL again. Thanks guys! Check out the lyric video right here:
