PSALM ZERO: New Noise Magazine Streams Entire Sparta LP; Album Sees Release Next Week As Eastern US Tour With Kayo Dot Begins
New Noise Magazine is now streaming Sparta, the new LP from NYC art metal outfit PSALM ZERO. The exclusive stream hits just days ahead of the album’s official release this Monday, February 24th. Just days after the album is released, PSALM ZERO will take the new album to fans live on tour across the Eastern US with their allies in Kayo Dot.
Having garnered respect in the metal underground over the past seven years for their intense blend of disparate styles and genres, NYC-borne art metal outfit PSALM ZERO is led by Charlie Looker. After nearly four years of writing, rehearsing, and solo project excursions, the outfit now returns with its most expressionist album yet; Sparta.
Sparta was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets (The Body, Daughters, Marissa Nadler), and features art and design by video artist Zev Deans (Ghost, Behemoth, Chelsea Wolfe).
Charlie Looker offers, “PSALM ZERO isn’t even exactly ‘metal’ anymore. Call it the next chapter, or call it a whole new thing. It’s basically what it always was: riffs, melodies, and the Sacred.”

As Sparta sees release, PSALM ZERO will embark on an Eastern US tour in support of the album. Beginning February 29th, the trek sees the band supporting Kayo Dot on a winding route through Detroit, Columbus, Indianapolis, Chicago, Madison, St. Louis, Nashville, Little Rock, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, Columbia, Charlotte, Falls Church, Philadelphia, ending in New York City on March 22nd.
Sparta is PSALM ZERO‘s first album with Looker handling all vocals, guitars, synth, and programming, with Keith Abrams (Kayo Dot) on drums and additional synth, and Ron Varod (Kayo Dot, Zvi) on bass. Additionally, the record features guest lead vocals on “Return To Stone” by Kristin Hayter (Lingua Ignota) and backing vocals on “Open Wound” and “A Pill” by Daisy Press. While the band’s first two albums were released via Profound Lore, Sparta will be issued through Looker’s own Last Things Records.
