SPARTA perform ‘Wiretap Scars’ in Full
Sparta Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their seminal and legendary debut album ‘Wiretap Scars’ by performing the album in Full
Sparta formed from the ashes of At The Drive-In. ‘Wiretap Scars’ bears all the traces of classic At The Drive-In — razor-sharp guitar slashes, aggressively churning punk grooves and emotional lung shredding vocals — along with darker textures, quieter passages, smoother performances and slower tempos. The album features the single “Cut Your Ribbon” and epic live fan favourites “Air” and “Collapse”.
“We made the decision early on in the tour to just play the album all the way through without any talking – and I like to talk! – because we know what the album means to you all and we wanted you to be able to live in those memories” (Jim Ward)
