Atmosphere’s third full-length studio album, Seven’s Travels, was released on September 23, 2003, through Rhymesayers and the punk label Epitaph. It contained two singles, “Trying To Find A Balance” and “National Disgrace”, both of which had music videos that received airplay on MTV2 and other stations, attracting more attention and success for Atmosphere than previous releases. The album included a guest appearance from label mate Brother Ali and was entirely produced by Ant. Several songs on Seven’s Travels contain lyrics pertaining to relationship problems, alcohol and depression. The single, “Trying To Find A Balance”, was used on the video game Tony Hawk’s Underground 2.
The album cover for Seven’s Travels was interpreted by some as an homage to The Beatles‘ White Album. However, that was not the case; the original planned cover depicted a nude woman lying in snow.
