    Spires are a four piece Progressive Metal band, based in Manchester, UK. Initially the brainchild of vocalist, guitarist and producer Paul Sadler, he was later joined by Paul Cuthbert on guitar, Alex Jolley on bass, and Chris Barnard on drums. Musically, comparisons are often made to Opeth, Emperor, Mastodon and Cynic; however this barely touches on the kaleidoscope of influences, both metal and otherwise, that combine to deliver a truly original, mesmerising and often transcendental sound. Spires released their critically acclaimed debut full length album, 'Spiral of Ascension' in November 2010, followed by 2012’s equally praised acoustic mini-album, ‘Lucid Abstractions’. Unfortunately in March 2014 original guitarist Paul Cuthbert left to focus on family life. However a replacement was very quickly found in previously unknown Richard Corrie, who successfully and quickly settled into the material, adding his own distinctive stamp. In October 1014 they announced their signing to Eulogy media, and successfully funded a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for the pressing and mastering of their full length second album, entitled ‘The Whisperer’. This was released on 10th November 2014, and has very quickly garnered huge amounts of praise, from such sources as Zero Tolerance Magazine and The Guardian. . The band completed a short UK mini tour in support of the album, and are now planning further touring in the UK and abroad for 2015. www.spiresband.co.uk www.facebook.com/spiresofficial www.spiresband.bandcamp.com Special guests: AGONYST and AWAKER
