Empyre have revealed the stunning video for new single Stone – the third release from critically acclaimed debut Self Aware.
The True Detective-inspired slow burner is part ballad and part stadium rock anthem and continues to strengthen the Northampton quartet’s reputation as a band without boundaries.
“It’s our ode to our favourite character from our favourite series – Rust Cohle from True Detective,” explained the band.
“He’s a dark, philosophical character who has explicit views on life, humanity and the universe.
“Stone gave us an opportunity to write about the darker side of human nature which is often hidden or ignored. But we hope most people can identify with this.”
Formed in 2016, Empyre enjoyed a successful 2018, playing HRH Festival Road To Ibiza and capturing the attention of BBC Introducing,
The band also recorded a session for the renowned ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris as part of the Radio Two DJ’s ‘Under The Apple Tree Sessions’.
