"No stage is too big for these guys"
Empyre perform intense, atmospheric rock, with a dark and introspective edge to their writing. In the words of BBC Introducing their music ranges from “Triumphant, chest beating rock” to more subtle but just as arresting numbers inviting you to do the deepest of soul searching. This is a gritty, lyrically engaging and profound style of rock music you have not heard before.
The last two years has seen the release of their debut album ‘Self Aware’ and the band gaining attention from the likes of Classic Rock Magazine with a 'High Hopes' feature and Kerrang! describing their sound as "slick, vast and like the music was written with the help of an architectural blue print for an arena", along with Planet Rock heralding the band as ‘Ones to Watch’, playlisting their music and booking them for the Planet RockStock 2021 main stage.
It has also seen them perform acoustic shows at Arena Birmingham before Eagles, Shinedown & Alter Bridge, winning Classic Rock Magazine's "Track Of The Week" for 'My Bad' and 'Only Way Out', Guitar World featuring them in their "Sick Riffs" YouTube series, and making the most of the opportunity afforded by the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown by filming a plethora of videos including music videos, their 'Isolation Sessions', the video series 'Empyre at Home' and now releasing new music with a succession of studio recorded acoustic tracks.
