Performing live as part of our club night Hey Hey Hey

EMP!RE is a five piece rock band from the South West of England. Formed in early 2012 they have spent the last year diligently working on their sound and live show. After putting out a low key self released EP in late 2012 to give early and eager fans a taste of things to come, some great reviews followed from the likes of Rhythm “EMP!RE have found an incredible chemistry...the sound of a band that has quickly become a well oiled tune spewing machine.”, Total Guitar and AfroPunk, where EP track ‘All The Rage’ was rated as one of their Top 10 best songs of 2012. Determined to raise the bar, EMP!RE have just completed the recording of their debut mini album, ‘Where The World Begins’ with producer Chris Coulter (Arcane Roots,Trails).This album captures the sound of a band finding their collective voices, working together to create a strikingly anthemic sound. Vitriolic and exciting in equal measure, the hooks stick like glue and leave EMP!RE set to make a big noise in the coming months.
