NORTH CAROLINA PUNK ROCK BAND SPARING TURNS BACK THE CLOCK TO 2003 WITH THEIR NEW SINGLE “I COULDN’T AGREE LESS”
A post hardcore-pop punk anthem, that feels like it could be sandwiched in an MTV rock block between Hawthorne Heights and Taking Back Sunday.
Sparing is set to release their new single, “I Couldn’t Agree Less” on Aug. 23rd, 2022 via Sunday Drive Records. Following up their 2021 EP, “Old Dreams”, which landed the band on the Spotify “All New Rock” Playlist, and coverage in Brooklyn Vegan, No Echo, and New Noise Magazine, songwriter Zach Godwin has re-focused Sparing to be a full solo project. Whereas “Old Dreams” combined 90’s alt-rock and pop punk, Sparing leans heavy on the early 00’s pop-punk/post-hardcore sound, taking influence from bands like Thursday, Allister, The Movielife, Senses Fail, etc. with their new EP, “No Room Left To Grow”.
Feeling stuck with little direction, and a weight of emotions encapsulates the new EP from Sparing. Tracked over a few weekends in the Spring of 2022 in North Carolina, Zach painstakingly performed nearly all instruments and vocals, with the help of Jonathan Owens (Dull Mourning) on drums and Brooke Nicole who is featured on the title track. “No Room Left to Grow” is full of guitar melodies, breakdowns, sing-along choruses and more, making this a perfect album to get stuck on repeat in the car all summer.
“It’s a record about loss, growth and finding yourself again.” – Zach Godwin (about “No Room Left To Grow” out Oct. 7th)
Vocalist Zach Godwin tackles personal topics like breaking free from anxieties and self harm on the opener “I Couldn’t Agree Less”. Cutting the dead of fairweather friends, and finally finding your breaking point on the song “Call Me Out”. Learning to cope with growing old, and aging out of the music you love and identify with on “Slip Away”. The title track featuring Brooke Nicole finds a couple fighting over their failed relationship, and the struggle with letting go.
