Long Sword Spectacular formed in Dallas in 2010, and we spent a solid year crafting songs. Our music is total rock and roll – some throwback, over-the-top rock and some progressive. Most of it is highly aggressive. Each of us brings a slew of influences, including: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Muse, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, KISS, Deep Purple, Burning Brides, Faith No More, QOTSA, White Stripes, Pulp, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin.
We finished recording our debut, self-titled album in September 2011, recorded with Bart Rose at Fort Worth Sound in Fort Worth, Texas. We've been playing shows since August 2011 and are looking forward to more rock shows and the upcoming release of some kick-ass songs.
