BBC Introducing – “No stage is too big for these guys”
Dramatic in a full electric setting, and deeply moving in acoustic format, there is a freshness and an intensity to Empyre’s music that makes them one of the most talked about new rock bands on the national tour and festival circuit. Empyre will be performing an acoustic set featuring well known anthems as well as their own original music.
