Sparta To Tour US, Try Not To Act Like A War State

At The Drive In wreckage survivors Sparta are hitting the road starting the first week of September and will support their brand new album, Wiretap Scars, for the following month in the US. The band will hit the stage with a myriad artists, including opening spots for Jimmy Eat World, as well as headlining spots on bills featuring Loudermilk, Cave-In and Planes Mistaken For Stars. The tour kicks off September 5 in Seattle and the US bit wraps in New York on October 6. The band will continue on to play three gigs in Japan before returning to the UK (they just played the Reading Festival), for a tour with up-and-coming UK emo-rockers Hundred Reasons.
