HRH AOR VIII stars Empyre have today released the video for epic new single “New Republic”.

Taken from their forthcoming debut album “Self Aware”, set for release on 5th July, “New Republic” will show the world what EMPYRE truly represents: contemporary rock riffs and hard hitting rhythms working together to create cohesive memorable songwriting seething with heavy riffs and fiery vocals. The lyrical domain also plays a dominant role in “New Republic” telling an urgent, current and sadly unbearable truth.


Reflecting on “New Republic” EMPYRE comment: “A song written as a retaliation to the crazy world we are currently living in. Where ideologies force humans to perform inhuman acts against each other in the name of religious theocracy or political authority.”

Formed in 2016, EMPYRE saw a successful 2018, playing the international HRH Festival – Road To Ibiza and capturing the attention of BBC Introducing, which described the band’s sound as “triumphant, chest beating rock”. EMPYRE also performed a session for the renowned ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris’ – Under The Apple Tree Sessions”, a privilege usually reserved exclusively for country acts.
