The Cardboard Swords Announce Split 7" with Dowsing, Long Knives, Sinai Vessel

Count Your Lucky Stars is excited to announce the addition of Grand Rapids, MI’s The Cardboard Swords to the roster. The label is also pleased to announce CYLS Split 4 which will feature the label’s two new additions, The Cardboard Swords and Long Knives plus emo veterans, Dowsing, along with Sinai Vessel, who recently signed to Tiny Engines, rounding the foursome out. The split 7″ is officially out June 12, 2015. The vinyl is now available for pre-order.

The band is heading out on tour in late May into June including shows with Del Paxton (Topshelf) and Sinai Vessel (Tiny Engines).

The Cardboard Swords is an indie-pop band from Grand Rapids, Michigan who you will soon know like the back of your hand. They sing with their heart on their sleeve, they ooze passion. So much so that every song almost feels like a confession or a conversation, like we’ve been best friends forever and we are just sharing stories and we have each other’s back while hanging out late night in between video games and movies. The Cardboard Swords make you feel alive, and what a time it is to be alive!
