Welcome The Cardboard Swords!

The Cardboard Swords Bio

Very excited to announce we have signed The Cardboard Swords! 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 you’ve been best friends forever and you are just sharing stories and you 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!

Their first release on CYLS is a song from the new Count Your Lucky Stars Split series. The split also features new tracks from Dowsing, Long Knives, and Sinai Vessel. We will be streaming each band’s song over the next few weeks, and you can hear The Cardboard Swords song right now at BrooklynVegan:
