Jim Ward of Sparta, Sleepercar and At the Drive-In responded to his former bandmates talk of reconciliation earlier this week. According to a Buzzgrinder report, Ward is not interested in commenting on the news (or really anything at all) saying:
I don't think that I'll be answering any questions or doing any interviews anymore, thank you very much. I haven't got much to say about anything except with songs which I will continue to make and release - cheers.

Ward released his solo album, Quiet, last year.
