Check out this premiere of "Chemical Feel" from Sparta. It's the band's first new song in six years, and you can download it for free here. Frontman Jim Ward had this to say about the track:

"I felt incredibly good to get back into the studio and record some new Sparta material. It is always a good feeling to come out of a break with something you really believe in and something you are proud of."

They'll be playing a handful of shows later this month. Dates can be found below. We're giving away tickets to each stop on the tour; enter here.
