Rancho Santa Margarita, CA – 9 July 2007 -- ProgRock Records is proud to announce the signing of Persephone’s Dream to release their fourth album “Pyre of Dreams”.

Persephone’s Dream began as an idea late in the 1980’s; an idea for a prog-rock band fronted by a dynamic female singer. While not an entirely original concept, it was clearly something that was rare and was definitely something that was not to be found anywhere on the music radar of time. By late 1993 this idea had begun to actually take form as Rowen Poole and Chris Siegle began writing and recording music for what would become the first release from Persephone’s Dream, Evening Mirage, in 1997. It was not until the 1999 release, MoonSpell, that people from around the world began hearing of the band and its music. By 2001’s release, Opposition, the band had become well known in the prog, metal and goth communities and was appearing at a number of the well known musical festivals around at that time. The band and its intense stage and light show won fans over at every live performance.

Pyre of Dreams is the culmination of this long process and one that highlights several other changes within the band itself. Two superb female vocalists (Colleen Gray and Heidi Engel) grace these new songs with their talents along with a special guest appearance from Mr. DC Cooper as lead vocalist on two songs. Persephone’s Dream is currently doing select appearances around the east coast of the United States and working on material for a new CD that will, hopefully, be released some time in 2008.

The band had this to say: "We here in Persephone’s Dream are very happy to sign with Prog Rock Records! We are not only fortunate to have such a respected company behind us and our music, but to also have some of our favorite artists – and even a few friends - as label mates! Very cool indeed!".

”A mutual friend turned me on to the band and I’m glad he did, this is some fresh material and for me the female vocals are something we’ve done only rarely, so that is also a nice change. We’re looking forward to a great partnership with the band.”, said Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records.

”Pyre of Dreams” is the ProgRock Records debut release from Persophene’s Dream and can be found at http://www.progrockrecords.com/artists/view.php?id=79. The album is available for immediate order and shipment and will be available at your favorite brick and mortar retailer on September 25, 2007.
