The Sword Announces New Drummer

The Sword

Meet The Sword's new drummer, Santiago "Jimmy" Vela III.

After its successful first leg of the Kyuss Lives! tour, The Sword is proud to announce Vela as a permanent member of the group. The Sword jammed with drummer Kevin Fender of Employer, Employee for this past year, following the departure of original drummer, Trivett Wingo. Unfortunately, the band was forced to cancel its appearance at this past July's Heavy T.O. festival in Toronto, Ontario because Fender was denied entry to Canada.

The Sword will wrap up the touring cycle for its third album, Warp Riders, with 18 U.S. and Canadian shows November 19 through December 10, once again supporting Kyuss Lives!
