We hope you are all well. We have been quite busy. As many of you know, The Empire Shall Fall has had some downtime lately (on that note, be sure to check out Jesse with Times Of Grace on tour in Europe and America, and Nick on tour with The Dear Hunter). Despite the downtime from performing live, we have been working on a series of concept EPs. While we haven’t yet released details on the concept linking the EPs, we can tell you that the first one deals with redemption and the “guts of emotion.” Lyrical content deals with “picking up the pieces of your life and starting over” and “finding a new perspective as a result of the changes and lessons learned in the past.” The four major tracks off this first release are titled below (this is not a complete track listing):
The Genesis of These Scars
Narrow, The Path I Walk
As The City Sleeps
The First Redemption
We are in the final stages of recording, currently trying to wrap up backing vocals, group vocals, and auxiliary instruments (which should feature some of our very talented friends). Over the next several months we will be releasing further details, the album artwork, sneak peaks, and the preorder options.
We anticipate releasing the first EP, titled “Volume 1: Solar Plexus,” this fall (a solid release date TBA). Each EP will be available for digital download and vinyl only. There will be a limited number of vinyls pressed. Once the third EP is released, a final “master” hardcopy CD will be released with the complete work. The three EP’s are anticipated to fade in and out of one another, and the final CD will contain the uninterrupted versions.
We want to take this to time thank everyone who has helped us out, particularly the fans. Your endless support has brought us to where we are today. We can’t wait to share the new material with you all! In the mean time, check out some guitar recording footage below!
