Of Empires Short Info

Of Empires are a four piece rock 'n' roll band from Brighton.

The band released their 1st EP Stranger Sensations in 2014, with many rating the band as ones to watch, with The Guardian describing the EP as ‘stomping, slow-motion riff-rock with snarling vocals and terrace-worthy choruses.”

The Brighton band were crowned MTV Brand New Unsigned Winners for 2015, and since then have spent the past year successfully touring the UK, including supporting the legendary Adam Ant on a number of his Sold Out tour dates and playing to a full house at last year’s Great Escape Festival, in which they were named a highlight by the festival organisers.

The band recently took a break to write and record a new EP with producer Ian Davenport (Band of Skulls, Gaz Coombes) at the legendary Metropolis Studios and are currently finishing up mixing with Ian Dowling (Catfish and the Bottlemen). The song ‘Baby Darlin’ Sugar’, taken from their forthcoming EP, recently debuted on Radio 1’s BBC Introducing Show with Huw Stephens and the video has just been released online with an EP and official release date soon to follow.

"Stomping, slow-motion riff-rock with snarling vocals and terrace-worthy choruses." - The Guardian

"The epitome of good old-fashion rock ‘n’ roll but with a current kick." - iammusic.tv

"The kind of sound that comes from hot streets after dark...." - BBC Introducing

"The three-track EP, Stranger Sensations, manages to bring together the more traditional elements of early rock ‘n’ roll (just listen to those riffs) as well as managing to keep it sounding relatively now" - Popped Music
