2019 has been Empyre's most significant year so far. 'Self Aware' came out in July, the likes of Planet Rock and Classic Rock Magazine have sat up and paid attention and as the year draws to a close we want to celebrate with YOU.

So we’re throwing a party, and performing a full set. We’ve asked the excellent Jack J Hutchinson to join us and kick the evening off.

Doors open at 6:30pm.
Jack J Hutchinson: 7:15pm.
Empyre: 8:00pm.

We have the venue until midnight. So please stay and have a drink or two with us after our set.


Empyre appearing at this event

Planet Rock – “Everything about Empyre’s beguiling music is colossal sounding” Kerrang! - “Empyre … sound slick, vast and like the music was written with the help of an architectural blue print for an arena” BBC Introducing - “No stage is too big for these guys” and “Thunderous rock with one of the meatiest sounds in the UK right now” Rock Today – “Debut album Self Aware – groundbreaking!…it’s a game changer” Empyre perform intense, atmospheric rock, with a dark and introspective edge to their writing. In the words of BBC Introducing their music ranges from “Triumphant, chest beating rock” to more subtle but just as arresting numbers inviting you to do the deepest of soul searching. This is a gritty, lyrically engaging and profound style of rock music you have not heard before. 2018 saw Empyre play HRH Ibiza, and perform sessions for BBC Introducing and the world renowned ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris’ ‘Under The Apple Tree’ sessions, a privilege normally exclusively reserved for country acts. 2019 has seen the release of their debut album ‘Self Aware’, gaining attention from Classic Rock Magazine, Kerrang!, and Planet Rock; heralding them as ‘Ones to Watch’, playlisting their music, announcing them for Winters End 2020 and premiering the video for the song ‘Stone’.
