Regarding the gigs, frontman Jim Ward had the following to say:

I’m excited to play these songs in this format for everyone. We’ve been trying to find a way to connect and celebrate and thank everyone for their overwhelming support on the release of this record while staying safe, and this seems like the ideal space and moment.

Me and at least one guitar, playing three shows to cover as many time zones as I can in one day. In my mind I’ll be picturing all these cities I miss being in and all those faces I look forward to seeing again.

We’ll record these shows and send a link to each ticket buyer to get a mixed/mastered version of the songs I play- grab a drink, come hang out and sing along. I miss you all!

Sparta’s first album in fourteen years, ‘Trust The River,’ is out now. Stream new single “Believe” below.
