Spartan Fidelity is a Tennessee based Alternative rock duo, made up of brothers Cinjun Tate (Vocals, Guitar) and Shelby Tate (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboard). Each are former members of Remy Zero. The name Spartan Fidelity is derived from rearranging the name of an Alabama insurance company, Fidelity Spartan.


Thus far they have produced one album, Excava-11, which is ostensibly the first in a three part series. As of December 2009, a release date for any second album has still not been set. To bridge the wait in between, the band has released a set of singles and EPs, available only by online download through their website. The EPs are songs which were originally composed to be included in the second album ("Excava-22"), but which have been removed therefrom prior to its release.

In the past, the band has also made available songs for free download, three of which were released around the time of Excava-11. These include "Another Sad Face," "Broken Drum," and the lyrics version of "The Hollows." A fourth, "By This River," was released in 2005 as part of a side project with the Yoshida Brothers. A twenty-nine second demo of an untitled song, still associated with the second album, has also been previewed.
