Indeed, they just announced the release of One Night In Tokyo on October 14th! During the band's last Japanese tour, in support of the Special Anniversary Edition of their signature album A Time Never Come, Secret Sphere had the chance to record their show in Tokyo in its entirety. To enhance the celebration, the band agreed to the label's suggestion to release a brand new version of "Lie To Me," featuring a duet between Michele Luppi and former Nightwish singer Anette Olzon.
Secret Sphere have a new label home: Frontiers Music Srl. The power metallers have new and exciting things coming up.

Frontiers plans to release the Live CD/DVD Live In Tokyo in the fall of 2016 with the new album expected to come in the early months of 2017.

Italian power metallers Secret Sphere have announced that new vocalist Michele Luppi (ex-Vision Divine, Thaurorod, Killing Touch) is joining the group ranks. The band made the following statement: "As previously stated by band the vocalist replacement is a new beginning, especially after more than 10 years of a career, there are risks to make mistakes and lost years of work, otherwise you can bring the band to the next level and find the missing link to give the right dimension to the project..."
The new album of the Italian band Secret Sphere, titled Archetype will contain 10 tracks. Some track titles are: Mr. Sin, All In A Moment and The Scars That You Can't See. Two special guest will appear, Trevor from Sadist and Alessandro Conti from Trick Or Treat.
Italian power metallers Secret Sphere entered the new Authoma Studios on December 6 to begin recording their sixth album, Archetype. The band will spend two months working on the CD, which is being produced by guitarist Aldo Lonobile and Federico Pennazzato. The album will be mastered at Massive Arts Studio, while the artwork will be handled by Gustavo Savez.
Guitarist Aldo Lonobile comments: "The musical direction will keep strongly the Secret Sphere trademark, with lots of melodies, orchestration and heavy riffs and great solos. It's not a big departure from what we have done in the past, but we feel that we've integrated some new elements that enhance upon everything we've ever done, making this one of our (if not the) strongest albums to date. Some of the songtitles are "Mr. Sin", "All In A Moment" and "The Scars That You Can't See". We're ready to deliver a great album, and show you what our new members Marco Pastorino and Gabriele Ciaccia can bring to our music."

Samples of the new upcoming album "Sweet Blood Theory" by Italian Power metallers Secret Sphere have been made available at this location (Flash Player required).
The album was recorded during December '07 and February '08 at Authoma Studios by Federico Pennazzato, and mixed in March '08 by Achim Koehler (Producer for Primal Fear, Brainstorm ,etc..) in Germany at Indiscreet Audio.
"Sweet Blood Theory" is a concept album based on the novel "The Vampire" written by John William Polidori in 1814 and is regarded as one of the early novels with a vampire character, by some even as the very first.
To embrace the concept and create the music for this fantasy epic, the band took inspiration from the famous movie director Tim Burton ("Nightmare Before Christmas", "The Corpse Bride", "Edward Scissorhand" etc), trying to re-create the typical atmospheres of his most famous movies in both the orchestral score (reminiscent of that of Danny Elfman, who did the music for the aforementioned Tim Burton movies) and for the artwork.
