The Swords — Discography-Download

Quite a while before we started RITUAL back in 2005, some of us played in a band called THE SWORDS. It was pretty hectic, chaotic and fast hardcore with outspoken, yet ironic and provocative lyrics.

I recently uploaded our complete recorded work for our singer and I just thought we could share this with everyone who's interested. So feel free to download this: »click!«

It's over

Last Saturday we played our last show. For sure it was a weird night for us, but it was definitely enjoyable. Thanks to everyone involved. We really do like Patsy O'Hara and The Bearer and we think the AKZ Recklinghausen is one of the coolest venues we've ever played in. And thanks to everyone for taking part, especially those who travelled a whole lot of kilometres to see the show. Ritual is over. Now it's all about doing new things.

Presale for our last show

Hi everyone,

we would like you to get a ticket for our last show. The procedure is pretty easy: Send a mail to ritualfarewell@web.de, transfer the money and you'll be added to the guest list.
This show might sell out in advance, so you better use this opportunity.

See you at our farewell party!

Waving goodbye

After seven years, several tours and records this is finally our last show ever. It takes place in our favourite venue, the AKZ Recklinghausen on September 29th, 2012 and to make it a sweet evening we've invited our friends in PATSY O'HARA. There is going to be more info up soon such as presale details and everything else. Feel free to share this event and let everyone know! Thanks.

Two new interviews

Here are two new interviews already discussing the break-up. The first one is in Portuguese, the second one in German. Sorry to our English speaking followers. Maybe you can try Google Translator. Sometimes it does a quite good job.

All Things Must Pass

Dear friends,

seven years is a long time. After giving it a good thought we have decided to break up. Let's do without these cheesy last words. We don't think we need to explain how much this meant to us and why we were doing it. When we started this band, we were still teenagers. Now we feel this band is coming to a natural end and that's pretty much it, although it may sound too simple.

It goes without saying that all of us are continuing to play music. Julian started a new hardcore band as a guitarist and they already have the studio booked for this summer. Pascal's and Philipp's punk band Messer already puts out its first album »Im Schwindel« this May. And Deni jams around in Berlin with various people and drinks lots of whiskey. However, we are still friends and are following each other's musical activities with huge interest.

That being said, our summer tour with Verse and Soul Control is now our farewell tour. After the tour we're going to play one last show in Recklinghausen in September and then it's done. It'd be great to see many of you at these shows! We'd like to make it a cautious farewell.

Thank you for everything! It's been a joyful ride.

Julian, Deni, Pascal & Philipp (Spring 2012)
