Dublin group Swords will release a new live E.P. this Tuesday (October 21st) entitled Swords – Live at Smalltown America.
The result of a one-off special live set the three-piece performed at Smalltown America studios in Derry last month, the extended play will feature four new tracks from Swords including ‘Betty Machete’ a song that impressed during the band’s recent headline show at the Button Factory (read T.L.M.T’s review here) and a performance of ‘Wicklow’ taken from their debut album Lions & Gold.
Indeed the E.P. itself sounds and feels like a natural off shoot of the trio’s seminal set at the Dublin venue this summer. Imbued with the group’s powerful live performance and a clear evolution sonically, new songs such as ‘Glock’ and ‘Who Took Your Soul’ are shining examples of the trio’s continued growth in the build up to album number two.
Swords – Live at Smalltown America is due for a limited two-week release from Tuesday, October 21st at noon via independentmusic.com. See full track listing below.
