Red Sparowes is a Los Angeles based instrumental group known for its epic, heavy and sprawling sounds heard over the course of three full length albums -- At The Soundless Dawn (2005) and Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun (2006) both on Neurot Recordings and the forthcoming Sargent House release The Fear Is Excruciating, But Therein Lies The Answer (2010). The band has also issued three split discs and the Aphorisms EP (digital-only 2008, 12" 2009). Red Sparowes consists of current and former members of Isis, Halifax Pier, Pleasure Forever, Angel Hair and The VSS.
In August 2009, the band returned to the studio with engineer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Big Business, Tool) to record its third album, The Fear Is Excruciating, But Therein Lies The Answer. The resulting 8-song disc is the first to feature guitarist Emma Ruth Rundle and finds the band's sound progressing ever onward in its balance of heft and melody.
