Hailing from Greenbrier, TN – a small town just north of Nashville – I AM SPARTACUS has all the elements of pop/rock sensibility with the added depth and intensity that comes from unbridled passion and pursuit of truth. The three-piece has harmonies reminiscent of The Beach Boys with pulsating drums that fire like cannons laying the foundation for epic guitar riffs and driving bass lines that pound you into the wall, all underneath the intense souring melodies that dance off the tongue like raindrops on rooftops. Their lyrics are just as hard hitting, melding the band’s faith with topics relevant to current times that connect on a deeper level.
No strangers to the music industry, Ben Peeples [guitar & lead vocals], Michael Segarra [bass guitar & backing vocals] and Brady Ridings [drums & backing vocals] have played venues and festivals of all sizes across the country and shared the stage with the likes of Jeremy Camp, Pillar, Building 429, Superchick, Stellar Kart, Seventh Day Slumber, Group 1 Crew, and Everyday Sunday, to name a few.
I AM SPARTACUS is gearing up to release a new EP this summer and currently adding dates to their touring schedule. To catch up on the latest about the band, check out www.iamspartacusband.com or follow them on social media at Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
