About the material found on the new album, bassist Tim Smolens commented: "The new album by Estradasphere distills the elements in the group that are clearly the strongest, while trimming the fat of our previous efforts."
Guitarist Jason Schimmel adds, "'Palace of Mirrors' took us several years to complete and it is a musical representation of our new directions in composition. This album will exceed our current fans' expectations, while appealing to a wider audience".
Following the release of their debut, Estradasphere are scheduled to embark on a full North American tour starting in October. The band plans to perform the entire album "Palace of Mirrors" live with a full multi-media presentation.
