Band member Dan Thomson comments on the EP:
“‘Dragging Hell’ has been a long time coming for us. And it’s almost a relief to have these songs coming out, in the best way possible. The time that surrounded the writing of these songs was one of the darkest times in my life, and it definitely comes out in the songs, both lyrically and musically.”

Sparrows is a post hardcore band currently residing in Toronto, Canada. Their sound has just as much to do with sheer volume as is does with delay and dynamics. Consistently obsessed with outdoing themselves, Sparrows have continued to push the boundaries of their sound and their pedal boards.
Since their inception, Sparrows’ focus has always been on the live show. Getting out on the road was a top priority, and it shows with how relentless their touring schedule has been. Through four years, and two vans, Sparrows has been able to criss-cross North America, destroying any stage that was allowed to them. They’ve also grabbed coveted spots on many festivals, including SXSW, NXNE, CMW and Ottawa Bluesfest. It was through all that touring, that Sparrows was noticed by Alternative Press, who named them one of the “100 bands you need to know” for this year. The band’s third time in the print giant, Alternative Press also coined Sparrows as “If Moneen sounded evil”.
