Empire Of Fools Début Mini Album out September

Devon, UK melodic rock band Empire Of Fools follow up on the success of their recent single with new debut mini album ‘Devil Inside’. Released on 20th September 2015 – This new 6 track mini album follows the lead of the single and title track; which saw the band receive praise from Classic Rock Magazine, Planet Rock Radio, BBC Introducingand Fireworks Magazine:

“Empire Of Fools are doing their best to bring the devil to Devon with this thumping track” – Classic Rock Magazine (Devil Inside single)

Empire of Fools

Devil Inside features 6 prime cuts of melodic hard rock: From the opening notes of stadium anthem ‘Down To Earth’ to the balls out rock of forthcoming single/music video ‘Higher’…it quickly becomes obvious that if you’re a rock fan, then this is something you need to soak up. Title track and lead single ‘Devil Inside’ is quite possibly THE rock song of 2015, with grooves, hooks and melodies a plenty; it bonds the 6 songs together and acts as conduit into ‘Dirty Mind’ and ‘Hope’ – Both songs showing how Empire Of Fools combine elements of light and shade to maximum effect.  Closing track ‘Unstoppable’ brings everything together and showcases Empire Of Fools in a succinct 4 minutes of unadulterated melodic hard rock.

“A rich mix of powerful powerful vocals and cut back guitar work, demonstrating the bands uncanny knack of creating huge stadium rock anthems…Immense” – Fireworks Magazine (Devil Inside single)

When asked about their forthcoming mini album, Empire Of Fools frontman Mark Pascall said “We wanted to release a collection of music that truly represented us right here, right now. In an age where music is so eagerly consumed and at times throwaway, we wanted to leave a lasting memory. So creating ‘Devil Inside’ as a mini album made sense to us. There was no way we were going to throw in another 4 songs just for the hell of it and compromise on quality. ‘Devil Inside’ is something we want people to digest and come back to again and again”

‘Devil Inside’ was recorded and engineered by Romesh Dodangoda(Motorhead, The Blackout, Funeral For A Friend) at Longwave Studios in Cardiff, Wales.

“Empires Of Fools is a name you’ll be hearing a lot more of in the future”– BBC Introducing

Release date: 20th September 2015 – expect new music videos to be premièred in coming weeks.

Empire Of Fools are:

Mark Pascall – Vocals, Bass

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!
