"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.


2019 saw the release of their debut album ‘Self Aware’ and gaining attention from Classic Rock Magazine, Kerrang! With Planet Rock heralding them as ‘Ones to Watch’, playlisting their music, announcing them for Winters End 2020 and premiering the video for the song ‘Stone’.

The year culminated with an acoustic show at Arena Birmingham and a packed out headline show at The Water Rats, London.


2020 has already started in fantastic fashion with Empyre winning Classic Rock Magazine's "Track Of The Week" with 'My Bad'.
