The sophomore release from Young Sparrows "Retour À La Case Départ" finds the Sparrows at a crossroads. 2012 found them on the road to big tour plans and big future goals after the release of their full length debut "We're All On The Same Team Here", and it all abruptly ended when key members quit the band directly after the debut was released.
Faced with their late 20's and wondering if there was even a point in continuing the band, the members shook off the rubble and started writing what would become "Retour À La Case Départ", which is french for "Back To Square One". These 6 songs recount the past year as a broken band reassembles. Touching on subjects like self-doubt, anger, loneliness, abandonment, and the strength of relationships.
Where most current pop punk bands sing about their friends and the joys of friendship, Young Sparrows wonder if the ones they had were ever really there at all. "Retour À La Case Départ" is a 25 minute long journey inside the minds of 4 conflicted young men, with wide eyes, open hearts, and only want to be heard.
