It seemed with At The Drive In’s reunion (minus Jim Ward) last year, talks and speculation of a hopeful Sparta reunion would also take place.

Anddddd, lucky us, that’s exactly what happened.

The art-punk, post-hardcore band made up of At The Drive In members formed in 2001 after a combination of excessive hype, relentless touring, artistic differences, contributed to the demise of ATDI.

With Jim Ward at the helm, the band released a few albums over the years and inevitably went on hiatus in 2008. Releasing a track in 2012 and then again in 2017, fans were stoked to find out in November 2017 that a new lineup would be announced, consisting of returning members Jim Ward, Matt Miller and Gabriel Gonzalez, along with a new member – Cully Symington on drums. A new song, "Graveyard Luck," was released on the same day.



Another song, "Cat Scream," was released in April along with a together with a tour announcement including a San Antonio date on Saturday, November 17 at Paper Tiger.

If you dig that early 2000s post-hardcore sound, you’ll probably want to be at this show.

Tickets ($17-$19) are on sale now and can be purchased at papertigersatx.com.
