Musical mavericks Sparks – Californian brothers Ron and Russell Mael – have returned.

Described as “the smartest, most consistently evolving band in the history of rock” and internationally acclaimed as pop pioneers, Sparks’ music has always been innovative and instantly identifiable.

In September, Sparks will release their 23rd album – “Hippopotamus.” Recorded in Los Angeles, “Hippopotamus” sees them take the pop form, shake it up, and create an album that is adventurous, fresh and idiosyncratically ‘Sparks’.

“Hippopotamus” (like all Sparks albums) often functions like a short story, with each song reaching a narrative or thematic conclusion that often leaves the listener amused and/or befuddled, but always the wiser of some little overlooked absurdity in life.”  — Under The Radar

“Like all great Sparks songs, the brothers deliver their sermon standing atop a mountain of grandiose orchestration, investing its un-depleted energy with a joyousness that has come to define its work across 45 years.” LA Times

“Welcome back you lovely disco oddballs”  — Music Week

Sparks will play a special event, 3-day series at the El Rey Theatre starting Oct. 14.
