ALEC EMPIRE 2 MONTHS TOUR STARTS NOW!
Sonic terrorist, Alec Empire, returns for another blistering series of live dates here in the UK that looks set to blow the roof off every venue it invades across the country.
?1000 Eyes? is the new download only single taken off the animated short film, ?The Golden Foretaste of Heaven?. After the critical acclaim of his mini album, ?Shivers?, earlier this year, Alec channelled his dark energy into creating a brooding, mesmerising soundtrack to the hotly tipped film by Austrian rising star, Richard Wilhelmer.
Fresh off supporting Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails on their European leg of the tour, Alec will bring his awesome live setup to the UK showcasing material from a career spanning almost two decades. Always a knack for spotting new talent, Alec has collaborated with Robbie Furze from The Big Pink on the track, ?If You Live or Die? off his last album and has produced and written Patrick Wolf?s lead single, ?Vultures?.
Wolf also appeared on stage with Empire during his sold out London date at The Underworld earlier this year and looks certain to join up with his partner in crime for the Islington Academy show in London on November 19.
Having recently remixed IAMX, ex Sneaker Pimp, Chris Corner?s new single ?Terrified?, the hardest working Berliner in music?s next project is a team up with Major Lazer and Saul Williams for some new tracks and a remix special with Dillinger Escape Plan later this year.
As a special treat for UK fans, Alec has roped in up & coming alt techno-core outfit, Motor, who are currently on tour with D?p?che Mode as support for his UK dates.
Alec has once again reinvented himself and you can witness the Empire effect first hand this autumn as Nic Endo and him take to a stage near you.
