Sparta announce summer tour dates; debut new song “Cat Scream”

Texas rockers Sparta have announced new summer tour dates via social media, having linked to a fresh post on BrooklynVegan that says the following:

While Jim Ward is no longer in At The Drive In, he recently re-activated his band Sparta who released their first song [“Graveyard Luck”] in five years this past fall. More music is likely on the way, as Sparta are now set to tour this summer, with dates on both coasts and a few cities in between.

The tour is set to cruise through the Tri-state area for a gig in New York City at the Bowery Ballroom on August 17 [TIX – presale password = SPARTABV]. The run also hits New Jersey at Asbury Lanes on August 16. Check out all dates below.
