Adobe and Teardrops podcast

Big shout out to our pals, Rachel and Von over at the ADOBE AND TEARDROPS podcast for playing our song, "My Ghosts Sing", on their latest episode! They do a really great job and we never miss an episode. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

Our disappearing act and triumphant return?

Every now and then life will creep up on you and give you a swift kick in the pants. It was for this unfortunate reason that The Sparklers had to shut things down for a little while, and contemplate the universe.
With our attention elsewhere, we found little to no time to properly promote our latest release, “All the Prettiest Girls Go Straight to Hell”. So, after some discussion, we decided to dust ourselves off, raise a glass to the past, and promote it as an official “re-release”; a do-over if you will. If you haven’t heard it yet… What are you waiting for? Get on over there a give it a spin!

OTHER NEWS:

  • Keep your eyes and ears open; we are currently working on adding some new live shows to our schedule.
  • We have redesigned our website. Check it out when you get a chance.
  • And last, but certainly not least. We would like to welcome drummer Steve Kirsch to The Sparklers. Dude beats the skins like they owe him money, and we are super siked!
  • Feels great to be back! Thank you for your patience and understanding.
