SORROW & THE SPIRE have dropped their new single In the City Tonight, out now across digital platforms through Crusader Records, with the music video available to view on YouTube.
The follow up to their previous stunning single My Misery Calling, In the City Tonight is another compositional success, reflecting Sorrow & The Spire’s penchant for heartfelt and undeniable song-craft. The yearning of its introspective lyric, about trying to find light in our darkest places, is expressed in emotional verses that give way to an undeniably anthemic guitar-driven chorus that feels both personal and universal.
Yet another rock masterpiece from SORROW & THE SPIRE, In the City Tonight is a big, bombastic tune that revels in the 90s glory day hard rock sound.

SORROW & THE SPIRE’S own Navid has always maintained a love for well-written melodic rock, where big guitar riffs support catchy and even pop-influenced melodies, and immediacy doesn’t have to sacrifice depth. Navid has been the leader of various bands and projects over the years. Although he has never gained notoriety outside of independent and underground music circles, he steadily refined his talents and continued to write and perform for the right reason – the love of the music. Now, with years of experience and the inspiration of amazing rock and metal music dating back to his youth, he has evolved into a solo artist that has something to say.
Sorrow & The Spire is the voice of a singer/songwriter/guitarist who is equally at home with 80s influenced hard rock, the 90s/00s active rock and modern rock that fuses it together with alternative and touches of grunge.
Navid is proud to release his first few singles through Crusader/Golden Robot Records. Produced, engineered and mixed by forty-year industry veteran Steve Brown (Trixter, Tokyo Motor Fist) and featuring good friends and guest rhythm section Chris DeChiara (U.S. Navy Band) and Jeff Teets (MindMaze), these tracks introduce rock fans to Sorrow & The Spire’s big riffs and memorable hooks, that go for the heart with unrelenting energy, and just flat-out rock.
Navid’s melodic sensibilities shine through in his passionate vocals and distinctive guitar style, always putting emotion before technique, and the song before everything.
