Empress To Release New Single "Left In Awe / Nostalgia"

Empress is a new prog quartet from Berkshire, which will be releasing a debut single in the form of double a-side "Left In Awe / Nostalgia" on September 16th. The band will also be supporting Baroness on 12th July at the Barfly in Camden. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Empress has been writing since the start of 2011, honing their style together; quietly and carefully. The result is a sound that belies their young age – all are in their early 20s. Soothing and vicious in turn, they juxtapose gentle harmonies with frantic ferocity; relaxed strumming followed by a detonating roar.

"There are as many elements of Mastodon, Metallica and Opeth in the music as there are of the more melodic Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Elbow – all huge bands and all huge influences on Empress. If that seems like quite the motley crew, you’ll understand why Empresses’s sound is so hard to pin down."
