Sparrows, the Toronto-based post-hardcore band have announced their third album, ‘Failed Gods,’ on August 9 via Sound Anxiety.

Along with the LP announcement, the band shared a video for A Little Crowded Death, which singer/guitar player Dan Thomson described as “a push off point for the record,” while saying the song made them readdress the entire release. “Failed Gods is an exercise in anxiety and anger,” he adds. “The past few years have been a learning experience about who and what we can trust, and that really coloured our writing this time around. It’s almost like we took off the rose coloured glasses and saw the truth of our surroundings, and decided to torch it to the ground.” Check out the video via YouTube below.
