Following the fantastic release of their Kscope debut album ‘Relentless‘ and earth shattering performance a KK’s Steel Mill, the band are bringing the new record to the masses on their UK run in support of The Damn Truth. In celebration of this momentous occasion the band have made their cover of Sia and David Guetta’s classic ‘Titanium’ available for streaming, for the first time ever. Alongside the dates with The Damn Truth, Empyre will also be performing at Steelhouse Festival and select dates throughout the UK in the autumn. 

Frontman Henrik Steenholdt comments: 

It feels like an age since we were last on tour, and as this is the first sustained road trip since the release of Relentless it’s an exciting prospect and intriguing to find out what kind of evening a blend of our darker melancholy rock and The Damn Truth’s cool, retro-rock makes.

We’re also very pleased to kick it off with a new single release, but it’s up against some pretty stiff competition to get into our sets on tour.
