Fire Red Empress Album and Single Announcements

FIRE RED EMPRESS Announce debut album  will feature Diamond Head’s Brian Tatler 

Unleash crushing new single ‘HAIL THE FACE’ on Red Vixen Records 

On May 27th  Fire Red Empress release their crushing new single ‘Hail The Face’ on Red Vixen Records.

The ferocious ‘Hail The Face’ with thickly amplified sheet metal riffs, jackhammer percussion, thundering drums, and soaring vocals, is a blistering monster of a tune. Lyrically “dealing with how people need to live behind a veil of lies and illusions to feel secure and safe rather than face the truth and take control of their destiny!”

Hailing from the Midlands, Fire Red Empress are an electrifying five-piece whose supercharged music is propelled by exhilarating, monster guitar riffs and powerful, haunting vocals. Feast your eyes on the video, a white knuckle ride featuring “James Bond” in a high speed duel

Fire Red Empress have finished recording their debut album, which will feature a track co-written with Brian Tatler of legendary NWOBHM band Diamond Head.

The album is being mixed and mastered by Über Producer Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Mercenary) at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark and marks the first physical release with new singer Jen Diehl (formerly of Furykane). “We can’t wait for people to hear Jen on these new songs. She’s given us a different edge and her voice is unbelievable” says guitarist Paul Gethin. “It’s definitely a heavier direction but the hooks are still there”

The track ‘Black Morphine’ co-written by Brian Tatler also features a guitar solo from him. The band met Tatler after he read an interview with guitarist Carl Gethin in Classic Rock Magazine, and named Diamond Head’s Canterbury as one of his favourite albums. “Brian is a great guy, really down to earth and to write a song with someone you respect so much was an honour” says Carl.

Fire Red Empress to support the album’s release will be touring ‘like mad’  and promise ‘Whether you’re headbanging or your just nodding along to the groove, we guarantee you’ll have a sore neck the following morning.”

Emerging with an impressive arsenal of huge stoner rock riffs and soaring anthems, Fire Red Empress boast a thunderous hard rock sound that refuses to be ignored.

Fire Red Empress  are poised to take the world by storm , and if you don’t believe it, listen for yourself.  All hail Fire Red Empress.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
