Sparks The Rescue, a five-piece band from Portland, Maine, joins the Fearless Records team today and anxiously awaits the release of their debut full-length album.
“We’re really excited to be a part of the Fearless family,” says vocalist Alex Roy. “It will be nice to have a West Coast support system. We’ve grown up listening to a lot of the Fearless Records artists and are stoked to have such awesome label mates.”
Sparks The Rescue, whose name is derived from Nicholas Sparks’ novel The Rescue, formed from the merger of three local bands from Portland in 2005. Since forming, the band has played over 200 shows and attracted the attention of WCYY, Maine’s number one alternative rock radio station with their hit track, “Autumn.”
The band is also no stranger to the stage, having performed with great acts that include Hawthorne Heights, Chiodos, Forever The Sickest Kids and All Time Low. The band is eager to perform their new songs for fans nationwide. “We want the fans to relate to the album and feel like they’re a part of everything, because they are,” says bassist Ben Briggs.
Check out the band on their spring tour with Racing Kites, The Dangerous Summer, and This Time Next Year, which kicks off this weekend in Virginia and includes stops at Bamboozle and the PureVolume showcase at SXSW.
Sparks The Rescue is Alex Roy, Patrick O’Connell, Toby McAllister, Ben Briggs, and Nathan Spencer.
