Fields and Fortresses
combines driving rhythms, memorable melodies, and singable hooks to create a unique atmosphere for each song. With his debut album, Brave New World, front-man Mike DeFraties tells the story that drove him to leave his home town and start a new life. "This project was very personal for me," he writes. "I poured a lot of my soul, my insecurities and my struggles into this album. Every note, every line was carefully thought out and rehashed until it was just right." Brave New World is available on Bandcamp and Noisetrade with future releases planned on iTunes, Spotify and other platforms in 2017.
