    Just a Ride - Acoustic
We are a British rock band. Our music has been put into many genres: Hard rock, alternative metal, neo mellow, post-grunge, modern rock, atmospheric rock, alternative rock, album rock, progressive rock.
We've been described as "the love child between Soundgarden and Pink Floyd" along with "intense", "introspective", "dark", "emotive" and "arena ready".
2019 saw the release of our debut album Self Aware and we gained attention from the likes of Classic Rock Magazine with a 'High Hopes' feature, Kerrang! described our 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 us as ‘Ones to Watch’.
The year culminated with an acoustic show at Arena Birmingham before Shinedown & Alter Bridge and a sold out headline show at The Water Rats, London.
The pandemic is not slowing us down, we've been out gigging, live-streaming and released six singles so far this year including Empyre - You Know My Name, our cover of the Chris Cornell & David Arnold James Bond theme classic. Our latest release Only Way Out (Piano Acoustic) is a somewhat delicate, stripped back, emotive song that we hope will give you shivers down your spine.
Planet Rock: "Everything about Empyre's beguiling music is colossal sounding"
Classic Rock Magazine: "On their dazzling debut album, Self Aware the closest musical reference point is Pearl Jam at their most glowering and emotionally intense".
