Described as the hardest working band in lockdown, Empyre wasted no time once restrictions eased filling the summer with a string of festival dates before blasting through a highly successful 18 date UK tour with Mason Hill in September and October. Now they are set to head back out on the road again in March 2022 with Icelandic Prog rockers The Vintage Caravan.
Lead Singer Henrik Steenholdt comments;
“The last tour with Mason Hill and Hollowstar exceeded our expectations. There was a buzz from start to finish. To head into 2022 knowing we have an album nearing completion and its release on the horizon along with touring alongside a great live band who are sure to draw in the crowds is a great feeling.”
This year Empyre have already released their acoustic album ‘The Other Side’, won Classic Rock Magazine’s Track of the Week a third time for ‘Only Way Out’ received rave reviews for their performances at the summer festivals including Steelhouse, Wildfire and LoveRocks, landed in the UK Official Album Chart Top 10 with New Republic on NWOCR Volume 1, returned to the studio to complete the recording of their next album and toured the UK with Mason Hill.
But, Empyre still has unfinished business with 2021, with no less than three festival dates still to come this month covering England, Scotland and Wales, with HRH ABC, Planet Rockstock and Winterstorm respectively.
