Empyre sign to Kscope and release Relentless

UK rock band Empyre have recently signed to Kscope and will release their new album Relentless on 31 March 2023. The title track from the album is out now.

“Joining the Kscope family of artists feels like a validation of us as songwriters,” says frontman Henrik Steenholdt. “We have a sense of reassurance, and we’re proud to be a part of it.”

Relentless was recorded between Covid-19 lockdowns. Recording again at Parlour Recording Studio, Kettering, with Neil Haynes, the album was mixed by Chris Clancy at Audioworks, who has magnified the band’s dark, emotional rock sound with an elevated deep richness.

“Relentless, at least in title, reflects Empyre and our level of dedication and ambition,” the band said. “Whilst the album as a whole is not pure hard rock, we felt the best way to introduce it would be with a striking and formidable title track, letting Relentless set the tone in terms of intensity.”

Relentless can be pre-ordered from https://empyre.lnk.to/Relentless.

All pre-orders via the Eyesore Merch band store will receive a hand-signed photo and an exclusive free download of Empyre’s unreleased cover of the David Guetta and Sia track, Titanium.

Empyre - 2022 Winter Gig list

Empyre are currently on tour with Vintage Caravan. “This tour has been a long time coming thanks to Covid-19 meddling with its scheduling numerous times,” the band said, “but ultimately, it couldn’t have finally landed at a better time for us. We’ve got a new record deal in place with Kscope, a new album just announced, and we’ve got the platform to play our tour audiences plenty of new music. We’re relishing the opportunity to get back on the road and play, especially with a great live band like The Vintage Caravan.”
