Sparta, one of the groups to have emerged from the ashes of At The Drive-In, will release a new album this summer.
The album has a title of 'Porcelain' and is set for a June release inthe US. It's the follow-up to their DiS-approved debut, 'Wiretap Scars', which managed to score an impressive 4.5/5 review here way back in August 2002.
For those who aren't aware, Jim Ward, Paul Hinojos and Tony Hajjar from ATD-I went on on to form Sparta. The other two (not the same 'other two' as New Order, mind you) formed The Mars Volta. The latter have a new single called ’Televators’ out this week, which you'd already know if you'd read the DiS Guide To March.
Information on a UK release for the Sparta album is not available at present.
