New Empire Tour
New Empire is set to embark on one of the busiest periods of their burgeoning career, with live dates that commence in May and culminate in a performance slot on the prestigious Vans Warped Tour in the US throughout July. Prior to heading off overseas, they'll hit the road for shows with indie rockers The Getaway Plan, before packing their bags and heading up and down the East Coast on their acoustic tour.
In another big win for the band, their inspirational song 'One Heart/Million Voices', from last year's album 'Symmetry', is featuring in the Nine Network's on air promotional spots for their broadcast of the 2012 London Olympics. Produced by lead singer Jeremy Fowler and manager Andy Mak, 'One Heart/Million Voices' was tracked in sessions at The Grove Studios and Chris Joannou's Central Coast studio. The delicate, sparse arrangement is immediately arresting and will no doubt strike a chord with the millions of Australians watching the Olympic Games in coming months.
Following The Getaway Plan shows, New Empire will embark on their own headline tour, a series of intimate, acoustic shows that will showcase their material to perfection. These dates run throughout June, concluding July 1, and take in a selection of venues across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. With the Vans Warped tour later in July to look forward to, along with a gig on the Dangerous Summer Tour, Jeremy Fowler sums it up succinctly, saying, 'Life's pretty good right now! It's going to be a massive few months ahead, but we're relishing the challenge!'
New Empire has just played to more than 10,000 punters on the main stage at Easterfest and collected a whole new legion offans playing stateside with New Jersey singer/songwriter Jenny Owen in February. Last year their sophomore LP 'Symmetry' debuted in the ARIA Album Chart top 40 and they reached the top 5 in Channel V's Oz Artist of the Year. They have released the singles 'Give Me The World, 'Here In Your Eyes' and 'Ghosts' from the 'Symmetry' album, winning over thousands of passionate supporters with their quality releases and consistent touring.
