Watch Texan Heavy Metal stoners THE SWORD new video "Used Future" below. The video was created by videogame makers Rooster Teeth in the spirit of old Nintendogames. "Used Future" is the title track of THE SWORD's sixth studio album, which is out now. The disc was recorded in Portland, Oregon with producer Tucker Martine (MY MORNING JACKETTHE DECEMBERISTSFIRST AID KIT).

In an interview with BillboardTHE SWORD lead singer and guitarist J.D. Cronise revealed the band's sound has evolved away from doom metal and now incorporates elements of LED ZEPPELINTHIN LIZZY and BLACKFOOT.

"We have to do something that we find interesting and enjoyable," Cronise said. "And, for me, the same old thing all the time just gets boring after a while. Our tastes have changed and evolved and matured over the years, and to me, everything we've done feels totally natural. I think what's weird is people's reactions of not really knowing what to make of [the new sound]. Which, in a way, I get, because it's just not a thing that's done very commonly these days. But, for me, I can't imagine it having gone any other way."
