The band have issued a statement.
US metal band The Sword have cancelled their Australian tour dates scheduled for next month, announcing they’ll be taking a hiatus.
After initially pushing dates this month back to October, the “warlock rock” outfit from Texas said they “feel it is time for a breather” after “15 years of nonstop recording and touring”.
The band will complete their current US run in support of new album Used Future before taking time off.
