SPARKS Release First Ever Live Album

Sparks announce first ever live album - Two Hands One Mouth Live In Europe will be released on March 18th 2013.

Pre-order now at the Sparks Mart - advanced orders will be shipped before the album is in other stores.

Ron and Russell explain:
“This is the first ever official live recording of Sparks. The ‘Two Hands One Mouth’ tour in Europe, from which these recordings were taken (the tour continued in Japan and soon America), has been an exceptional experience for us and, judging by the reaction and feedback, also a memorable and emotional event for Sparks' fans. As a result, we want to celebrate the event with a souvenir for all Sparks' fans that captures this tour and the unique format of the performance. While we began the tour with certain fears of not having the safety net of a band or computers, we soon realized that the format was wildly successful (for us and for the audience) in highlighting in the purest form the core elements of what Sparks has always been--our musical world conveyed through our songs and our vocals and performed in a most aggressive way. What seemed to always set us apart was, we think, made emphatic in this format.

We don't consider this album as a substitute for Sparks' next studio recording, but rather as a special souvenir of an event that, as most Sparks fans will know, will most likely be followed by our moving in some different and, we hope, puzzling new direction. Until then, here is/are Two Hands One Mouth.”
