Empyre are on the rise. Kscope signed the band in 2022, and in March 2023 they released their second electric album Relentless. This followed their debut album Self Aware in 2019 and The Other Side in 2021. Living up to their own album's title, their relentless release schedule means this year they make it 4 albums in 5 years with the release of Live & Unplugged in May.


Sonically, 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. They’ve also been described as the love-child of Pink Floyd and Soundgarden.


Plaudits have included being awarded a ‘High Hopes’ feature by Classic Rock Magazine, along with winning their “Track Of The Week” on three separate occasions. Kerrang! described their sound as "slick, vast and like the music was written with the help of an architectural blue print for an arena" and Planet Rock heralded the band as ‘Ones to Watch’.


Just as adept performing “unplugged” as they are fully electric Empyre have performed acoustic sets before rock legends Eagles, Shinedown and Alter Bridge at Arena Birmingham and been one of very few rock acts to be featured on ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris’ “Under The Apple Tree” Sessions. Recent years has also seen them rise up the billing at the likes of Steelhouse Festival and Planet Rock Winter's End.

Amongst the album releases 2023 and 2024 has featured a string of sold out headline shows and they recently joined the ITB roster.


The latest album 'Live & Unplugged' is out now, find it here.
