"We recorded our new single 'Perplexed Again' at the same time we did 'Left In Awe' and 'Nostalgia'. Those three tracks have been the backbone to our live shows and go down really well - especially when we played with Baroness.

Pink Floyd are a very important band to us. 'Breathe' is a really emotive song that we recorded as a b-side to the single, we felt we could cover it in our own way whilst still paying homage to the original. We wanted to put more sludge and stoner sounds into the track. It says a lot about the song that it can be adapted so heavily and still sound cool."




Go see the band at any of their forthcoming shows this month and take a look at facebook.com/empressband for more details. The band's new single 'Perplexed Again' is released on November 26.

Nothing much matters in August other than Reading & Leeds Festivals, right? This year we really were spoilt for choice as Blink-182, You Me At Six, A Day To Remember, Sleeping With Sirens and so many more GREAT rock bands brought the festival back to its roots. Plus there was the small matter of a couple of VERY special warm-up shows from Sleeping With Sirens and Gerard Way...
