Fire Red Empress Enter Studio With New Singer Jennifer Diehl

UK heavy rockers Fire Red Empress have recently entered Crown Works Studio in Wolverhampton with co-producer Gazz Rogers (God Damn, Robert Plant, Editors) to record new tracks including new single ‘Hail the Face’

The track is being mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Mercenary) at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark and marks the first recording with new singer Jennifer 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 Fire Red Empress guitarist Paul Gethin. We’re working hard on writing our debut album but we just wanted to get a couple of songs out there so people can see where we’re heading…”

Within days of playing storming sets at Bloodstock and SummerbreezeFestivals in the summer, the band shocked fans with the announcement that singer Nik Taylor-Stoakes was being replaced. “It’s been a crazy year really but we’re excited to be finishing on a massive high!” says bassist Ben Picken.

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!
