The Vorpal Sword is taking alternative story rock on a whole new journey. Guitarist JOSHUA ABEL, Bass and Synth player JAMES MCCAULEY, Percussionist RANDY QUILLEN, (each of whom have made greatly respected contributions to local music both together and in other projects), have teamed up with Songwriter/Vocalist/Rhythm Guitarist JOSEPH HIGGINS, whose punk and metal band Evil Eye was the driving force of many house parties and club shows since the early-2000s. The Vorpal Sword has already gained attention with their exciting new sound at regional venues such as The Nick Rocks (Birmingham), Workplay Theater (Birmingham), Mathews Bar & Grill (Birmingham), Maggie Meyers Irish Pub (Huntsville), and Warehouse 319 (Jasper, AL). The Vorpal Sword begins their second year with a full-length EP in the works. Combining experimental and classic elements of songwriting and musical storytelling, THE VORPAL SWORD is quickly becoming local music's most-coveted weapon!
