Empyre – new album and new track: News

News from UK rock band Empyre (we sa them supporting The vintage Caravan in Manchester and they were excellent!) as they announce details of their new album – Relentless – which will be released by Kscope on 31st March 2023 as well as showcasing the title track here:

The band find themselves placed alongside the likes of TesseracT, The Pineapple Thief and Envy Of None, on a label that has previously released albums from Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree and Tangerine Dream.
‘”Joining the Kscope family of artists feels like a validation of us as songwriters. We have a sense of reassurance, and we’re proud to be a part of it,” says Empyre frontman Henrik Steenholdt.

Widely regarded as one of the hardest-working bands of the past few years, Empyre’s work on Relentless  took place between pandemic lockdowns and during the release cycle for their previous album – The Other Side . Once again they encamped at Parlour Recording Studio, Kettering for recording with Neil Haynes, before handing mixing duties to Chris Clancy at Audioworks (Machine Head, Those Damn Crows, Massive Wagons) – who has magnified the band’s dark, emotional, rock sound with an elevated deep richness.

The first single and album title track showcases Empyre’s work ethic and ethos, and musically, the hard rock track will resonate with listeners in their scene. “Relentless, at least in the title, reflects Empyre and our level of dedication and ambition. Whilst the album as a whole is not pure hard rock, we felt the best way to introduce it would be with a striking and formidable title track, letting Relentless set the tone in terms of intensity,” the band adds.
