Sparta (At The Drive In) To Release Self-Titled Album In October, Debut Two New Tracks


Sparta, the Texan outfit led by former At The Drive In guitarist Jim Ward, have announced an October 14th release date for their new self-titled album. Dine Alone Records will be dropping that effort, which finds Thursday, etc. drummer Tucker Rule handling the percussion duties throughout.

Two songs from that 12-song outing have just gone up online, including “Mind Over Matter“, which features a guest spot from Kayleigh Goldsworthy, and “Spiders“, which finds Angelica Garcia lending her talents.

Ward commented of “Mind Over Matter“, stating it was “a spitfire of a riff that screamed hope and possibilities. The music directed the lyrics, and I wrote about anybody being able to do anything, hope grown from love — a direct call to myself to write about and sing about the good things in life. The extremely talented Kayleigh Goldsworthy added harmonies and sealed the vibe — one of my favorites from this album.”
