SEVEN SPIRES is pleased to announce their new studio album A Fortress Called Home to be released June 21st via Frontiers Music. To celebrate the announcement, the band has shared a music video for the first single, "Almosttown".

Bassist Peter de Reyna on A Fortress Called Home:

"This album will build you up and tear you down in true SEVEN SPIRES fashion. I couldn't be prouder of the life that's been created in this, our fourth record. Revel in the anguish, bask in the glory, and we will see you on the other side."

About the single "Almosttown", frontwoman Adrienne Cowan comments:

"It's a song about questioning yourself, your choices, the road behind and ahead, and the lonely bed you habitually make and lie in. It's yearning for the impossible; the elusive, the intangible."

Guitarist Jack Kosto follows up: "We knew pretty early on that this would be a perfect first single, as it's a really fun and somewhat gentle introduction into the subject matter of this album. It's got all of the fun stuff: riffs, hooks, musical chops, and a gorgeous castle we were lucky enough to film the music video in!"

A Fortress Called Home, SEVEN SPIRES' fourth studio album is the follow-up to Gods of Debauchery (2021) and takes their signature blend of symphonic power and extreme metal to new heights, dragging the listener to the deepest abysses in the process.

Adrienne Cowan comments:

"I visited the void twice while writing this album. I don't know which begat the other. It's ugly. I love it and I hate it, and I think it's our best work yet."

A Fortress Called Home was produced, mixed, and mastered by Jack Kosto who had this to say about it:

"If our previous albums have intended to take you on an emotional journey of our design, this album forces you to confront the one of your own making. Good luck and enjoy!"

SEVEN SPIRES' 2024 touring schedule includes a European tour with SKALMOLD and ATAVISTIA in March, four North American shows as direct support for KAMELOT with AD INFINITUM in April, a headline set at Mile High Power Fest in Denver, CO, in August, and their first-ever headlining Japanese tour with LORDS OF THE TRIDENT in December.

  • "A Fortress Called Home"
  • "Songs Upon Wine-Stained Tongues"
  • "Almosttown"
  • "Impossible Tower"
  • "Love's Souvenir"
  • "Architect of Creation"
  • "Portrait of Us"

SEVEN SPIRES is an American symphonic metal band from Boston, MA. Since their inception in 2013 at Berklee College of Music, these best friends have forged their home in the darker corners of the melodic metal world with strikingly emotional filigree and relentless technical prowess. Known as much for their melancholic concept albums as their penchant for pushing genre limits, they draw influence from across the spectrum of metal and beyond, reaching ravenously into jazz, late Romantic-era orchestral music, cinematic soundscapes, and more.

SEVEN SPIRES' touring history includes North America with ELUVEITIE and OMNIUM GATHERUM in 2023, Europe with TWILIGHT FORCE and SILVER BULLET in 2023, as well as North America with DRAGONFORCE, FIREWIND, and VISIONS OF ATLANTIS in 2022. They have also performed at prestigious metal festivals, such as 70000 Tons of Metal, Metaldays, ProgPower USA, and Mad With Power Fest, where they played a sold-out, nearly two-hour headline show in 2023.

Outside of SEVEN SPIRES, Adrienne Cowan tours the world singing with AVANTASIA and SONIC SYMPHONY. Jack Kosto specializes in audio engineering, production, mixing, and mastering. Peter de Reyna works as an artist manager at his own De Reyna Management agency and also plays bass in prog outfit OK GOODNIGHT. A Fortress Called Home features former drummer Chris Dovas' final musical performance with SEVEN SPIRES.
