Jim Ward, vocalist/guitarist for post-hardcore outfit Sparta (and ex At the Drive-In), will release his debut 5-song acoustic-friendly solo EP, jimward.quiet, via his label Civil Defense League, in conjunction with Doghouse Records, on November 6. To preview some of the tracks, visit here.
Ward writes on his MySpace of the album:
“After coming home from a long tour with my band, Sparta, I wanted to sit in my house and play acoustic guitar quietly. The tour had been loud and chaotic and I was simply trying to level out. I liked how things were sounding, so I began recording them in my studio.
These 5 songs are the beginning of what I hope will be an on going series of recordings, hopefully adding more and more friends to the fold. This volume has a few friends of mine adding some goodness.”
