Sparta (Ex-At The Drive In) Premiere “Believe” Video

Sparta (ex-At The Drive In) have premiered a new video for their new song “Believe.” This track is from the band’s new album “Trust The River,” which will be released on April 10. Jim Ward commented:

“‘Believe” is a song that’s been on my desk for 10 years, I’ve recorded numerous versions but couldn’t quite get it where I thought it was ready until now. Once we had the basic track I sent it to my friend Carlos Arevalo from Chicano Batman for some guitar touches and was over the moon with his contribution. I couldn’t think of a better song from ‘Trust The River‘ to kick this new chapter off.”
