Empyre set to rock in Pershore this May

Evesham Editorial 18th Apr, 2019   0

ATMOSPHERIC rock four-piece Empyre will be taking to the stage at Bar 57 in Pershore this May ahead of the release of their debut album ‘Self Aware’

The British newcomers will be in town on May 10 for an evening of music which will include their first single ‘Too Little, Too Late’ which is released on Friday (April 19).

Hailing from Northampton, the atmospheric rock four-piece is ready to present a truly accomplished first record.

Filled with no fillers, ‘Self Aware’ is a collection of 11 outstanding tracks, in which each song individually showcases a band with skilful song writing and a bold sound.

Every song on this album has its own personality, and an underlining and unifying soundscape ties all the tracks together, fusing the roots of the style’s tradition with a unique musical edge, creating a distinctive, dark and introspective rock.

From the gritty opener “My Bad” to the heavier and more intense “New Republic”; from the dramatic “Too Close” to the more upbeat “Drive”; from the hard-hitting “Too Little Too Late” to the atmospheric and epic “Homegrown”; each track is lyrically engaging and displays an unapologetic unique sound.

The band say: “Lyrically ‘Self-Aware’ is an album with a dark tone, however the tracks conceal positive messages.

“Musically we try to hit a point between a soulful, melodic tone, whilst keeping it heavy enough to shake the foundations now and then. We’d describe it as a combination of gritty, sometimes haunting vocals with captivating guitar hooks and solos.”

Formed in 2016, Empyre saw a successful 2018, playing the international HRH Festival – Road To Ibiza and capturing the attention of BBC Introducing, which described the band’s sound as “triumphant, chest beating rock”.

Empyre also performed a session for the renowned ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris’ – Under The Apple Tree Sessions”, a privilege usually reserved exclusively for country acts.

Ahead of the album release, Empyre performed two stand-alone shows in March, before embarking on a full UK rotating headline tour in May, with English rockers Ryders Creed and The Rocket Dolls.
