Shortly after announcing details of their debut album release, Black Orchid Empire have unveiled a run of headline UK shows in November along with an album launch show in London.
The band comments “Playing live is what it’s all about for us. Getting to tour round the UK and hang out with the people who keep this killer rock music scene alive is always incredible. We’re so excited to share our new record with everyone – we cannot wait to see you guys on the road!”
The London-based rock trio will release the ‘Archetype’ on November 11th
“ARCHETYPE is a rock album. A proper all-in, listen-from-start-to-finish journey; something to get caught up in and obsess over until you hear little overlooked details on the third or fourth play-through.” Comments frontman Paul Visser.
He continues…”For us, each song is something that needs to be refined and worked on until it takes you on that perfect, heady rollercoaster – our album as a whole is the same way. It’s dark, it’s heavy, it’s melodic, it’s complex, but all in balance and all working together in the best interests of the record. We’re incredibly proud of this album – it really does define us as a band.”
Black Orchid Empire have performed alongside heavyweights such as Biffy Clyro, Skunk Anansie, Feeder and Editors and include previous members of highly-acclaimed groups Queen Adreena and Cape Fear. They have enjoyed significant support for their previous singles, having been playlisted on Kerrang! TV, Kerrang! Radio, Planet Rock and Total Rock.
“Black Orchid Empire have steamrollered their way into my life with a song that is so undeniable, it’s like I’m hearing Muse for the first time all over again.”
