Agent Sparks was a band formed in early 2005 when two former band mates from Audiovent decided they wanted to continue making music. Members include Benjamin Einziger (lead vocals, guitar), Stephanie Eitel (lead vocals, keyboard, percussion), Paul Fried (bass, vocals), and George Purviance (drums, vocals). They released their first EP entitled Not So Merry in September 2005. This EP included, "It's Not My Time," "Choke," and "So Long Darlings." On June 20, 2006 they released their first full length album Red Rover. Both their EP and full length were produced by Ben's brother and Paul's stepbrother, Incubus guitarist Michael Einziger. The band later went on to tour with bands 30 Seconds to Mars and Veruca Salt (band).[when?] Following a cross-country tour to support their full length album "Red Rover" with Hoobastank,[when?] the band decided to go their separate ways, although no specific reason was cited, although the impending marriage of Stephanie Eitel was suspected to be part of the reason.[citation needed]
