Red Sparowes to release third album, tour

on March 24, 2010, 4:44pm

Red Sparowes, the Los Angeles post-rock group featuring members of Isis, Angel Hair and others, is soon to release its third album. It has the best title of the month (at least): The Fear is Excruciating, But Therein Lies the Answer, and is due out April 6th on Sargent House.

According to a press release, the album is going to be more song-based–anyone who’s heard 2006’s Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun will tell you it was the opposite, an eight-track wall of sound featuring song titles long enough to likely not care what they were. The album will also take the band’s sound in a new direction, perhaps in part due to this being the first full-length release featuring new member Emma Ruth Rundle of The Nocturnes.

The band will begin a North American tour supporting the album March 29th, ending it in San Diego May 9th.

The Fear is Excruciating, but Therein Lies the Answer Tracklist:
01. Truths Arise
02. In Illusions of Order
03. A Hail of Bombs
04. Giving Birth to Imagined Saviors
05. A Swarm
06. In Every Mind
07. A Mutiny
08. As Each End Looms and Subsides
