Exclusive: Sparrows Premiere New Album, Cold Ground
Cold Ground, the debut eight-song LP from Canada’s Sparrows, is the follow-up to 2011’s Goliath EP that found the band channeling their North-of-the-border contemporaries and friends Moneen, as well as like-minded acts such as Hot Water Music, Thrice, and others.
Of the new album, which was recorded at Getaway Studios by Jay Maas (Defeater, Polar Bear Club, Title Fight, etc.), guitarist and vocalist Dan Thomson says, “Cold Ground was a long time coming for us. We spent a good amount of time on the road over the last year and a half, and that really colored the way we approached writing this record. It was really important to try and capture the intensity of a live show in Cold Ground in each song. Of course, having Jay Maas in your corner is definitely going to help that.”
