Album YUGEN out now
UK headline tour starts September 27th

London rock band Black Orchid Empire have released their new song 'Burn' today. It's the third single taken from their current studioalbum YUGEN that has been released on May 25th, 2018 via Long Branch Records

Of 'Burn', Paul Visser (Vocals, Guitar) said:
"One of my earliest negative memories is sitting in my high chair as a toddler watching a tiny 80s TV as the Challenger space shuttle blew up in mid air. I based these lyrics on that experience โ€“ partly my memories of it, partly my thoughts about it now. The music is based around a big riff and soaring chorus with some cool switchups towards the end. I love the melancholy breakdown and chanty buildup section in the middle, it's powerful and poignant and beautiful as well as technical."

The video for the song has been directed by Jay Hillyer and includes powerful live footage from Black Orchid Empire's live performance at Download Festival 2018
