London, UK rock outfit BLACK ORCHID EMPIRE have announced details for their next studio offering. The band will release ‘Live In The Studio’ on April 16th, 2021 via Long Branch Records. The live EP includes one song from each of their critically acclaimed full-length albums. These ferocious performances showcase the band’s huge sound and machine-like tightness as the three-piece thrives in their natural environment – the recording and rehearsal space that gave birth to so many of their monstrous riffs. Fans can check out the music video for the first single, “Pray To The Creature”, by visiting the link found below.
Black Orchid Empire guitarist and singer Paul Visser about the new EP:
“Playing live in front of an audience is always an incredible experience, but much of our music was created in a more personal and isolated place. Filming three of our favorite songs in the room in which so many of them were written, thrashed out, and recorded was an amazing experience which we can’t wait to share!”
Black Orchid Empire create huge, memorable rock music that combines heavy-hitting savagery with intense melodic beauty. Their technical, fearlessly complex grooves and gigantic sing-along choruses have already earned them a widespread fanbase.
A ferociously tight live band, Black Orchid Empire have toured extensively throughout Europe and the UK, supporting Skunk Anansie on their sold-out 25th anniversary shows, including Brixton Academy. These appearances, as well as previous tours with HED P.E., INME, Black Map, and Ravenface, along with festival performances at Download, Standon Calling, Planet Rockstock, Camden Rocks, and Taubertal, have sealed the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with.
“Beautiful melodies coupled with tear-your-face-off riffs. Bright fresh new stars” – Skin, Skunk Anansie
