Having only graced our shores for Splendour In The Grass last year, At The Drive-In return Down Under with their new album in tow.

The Mars Volta are pulling their touring socks up again soon and landing in Australia for Splendour In The Grass (and select sideshows), before releasing their sixth album later this year.

Front man of Sparta and former member of At The Drive-In, Jim Ward, is returning to Melbourne to treat fans to an intimate performance showcasing tracks from his debut solo album.

 

Jim Ward last visited Australian shores for the 2008 Soundwave tour, which saw him as somewhat of a dark horse on the line up, performing his earlier solo works acoustically amongst the predominately...
