UK rockers EMP!RE have revealed the video for their latest single 'Sour Tastes', taken from their debut album Glue - due for release on 7th September 2018 via Silent Cult.

Watch the video for 'Sour Tastes' here: https://youtu.be/f2eVJlByBy8

Guitarist James L'Esteve comments on the video:

"We wanted to do something really different for this video. We sat with our director Carl Shanahan and put this together. It is completely shot in one take, there was lots of running and choreography going on. There are no edit points whatsoever so it was fun to shoot, but it had to be right from start to finish! What you don't see is what happens when the camera pans is that the people in masks need to get from one end to the other in Usain Bolt levels of speed! 

We felt the video represented a personal struggle. It's about fighting through your problems (metaphorically of course!) and making it out through the other side in better shape and more cleansed! Just the idea of facing things head on and not running around the problem. 

It takes inspiration from a well known TV show - I will let you work out the reference!" 

EMP!RE have also announced a London headline show to celebrate the release of Glue, due to take place on Wednesday 19th September at Thousand Island. 

Ticket bundles and pre-orders of Glue are available here: http://radi.al/EmpireGlue

All pre-orders of Glue will receive an instant download of 'Sour Tastes' and previous single 'My Party, My Rules'. 

With hints of Biffy Clyro and Coheed & CambriaEMP!RE's debut album is full of huge hooks and soaring moments - from thumping opener 'Colour Of Shame' through to the mesmerising and powerful 'Teeth/Tether', Glue is a testament to the band's impressive craftmanship, showcasing their natural ability to write energy-fuelled and exhilarating rock music. 

Of the album, L'Esteve adds:

"We are so happy to finally release our debut album to the world. It's been a long time in the making and full of blood, sweat, tears and everything in-between. We almost didn't make the record and that is what led to the title, Glue. This album for us is about sticking together, being in this together, despite all the challenges. We have created music that we wanted to hear, carved the songs out of things and influences that we are excited by. We can't wait for you all to hear it!"
