Canada's Sparrows will release their debut LP Cold Ground on July 30 via Broken Heart Records. We have a first listen to the album, which was produced by Jay Maas (Defeater, Polar Bear Club, Title Fight), with its first track, “Coffin Fever.”

“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,” the band said. “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. “

Listen to “Coffin Fever” below and tell us what you think.
