Black Orchid Empire was one of them", says Long Branch Records label manager Manuel Schönfeld"Their new demos convinced the team so we stepped deeper into a conversation and it was quickly clear that both management and the band, as well as us as the label, want to team up for new releases. We're happy to welcome another highly talented band to our artist roster."

Paul Visser, vocals & guitar in BLACK ORCHID EMPIRE, adds: "We're beyond stoked to sign with Long Branch, it's amazing to work with a label who understand our music and are passionate about helping us get it out into the world.
