2&2 Q&A: Sparta

This week we speak to the one and only Jim Ward of Sparta about their brand new album ('Threes'), their new record deal and all other things new for the group. 

2&2: One thing that your fans love about you is that with every album you seem to evolve musically. Is that intentional on your part or is it just the natural progression for you?

Jim Ward: we try to grow as we go on, it is really my mission in life to be a good song writer, I enjoy the process so much, each record is a reflection of the years in between the last one

2&2:What are some of your favorite tracks from the new album?

Jim Ward:I love most vicious crime, and weather the storm a lot, probably because I am on tour right now and they are fun to play

2&2:You guys have made some big changes since your last album, so we have a couple questions about that. Keeley Davis had some pretty big shoes to fill, how did hook up with the group? And what has he brought to the mix?

Jim Ward:we knew Keeley from his old band, Engine Down, he came in and totally gave a new brightness to the band, he is a great guy and an amazing writer, he has really helped me grow as a writer as well, he has brought a new layer to the sound for sure

2&2:How has the transition from Geffen to Hollywood Records been?

Jim Ward:Hollywood has been great, they're totally supportive of us and let us be who we are without trying to mold us or turn us into something else, I love the staff the there

2&2:You guys kicked off your extensive tour a few weeks back at the Glasshouse (you're fans will recognize the name) how has the tour been going so far and what do you have coming up?

Jim Ward:the tour has been great, so far the new stuff is going over really well, we will be on the road for a long time, that is the plan

2&2:Speak of tours; we'll leave the interview on this note. If you could tour with any artists, who would it be?

Jim Ward:Radiohead
