Black Orchid Empire Announce Live EP And Release Live Video For ‘Pray To The Creature’

UK rock trio Black Orchid Empire have announced their first live EP, titled ‘Live In The Studio‘, set for release on 16th April 2021 via Long Branch Records. The band have also released a live video for the first single from the EP, ‘Pray To The Creature‘.

Live In The Studio‘ features one song from each of the band’s critically acclaimed full-length albums. These ferocious performances showcase Black Orchid Empire‘s huge sound and machine-like tightness, as the three-piece thrive in their natural environment – the recording and rehearsal space that gave birth to so many of their monstrous riffs.

Guitarist/vocalist Paul Visser comments:

Playing live in front of an audience is always an incredible experience, but much of our music was created in a more personal and isolated place. Filming three of our favourite songs in the room in which so many of them were written, thrashed out and recorded was an amazing experience which we we can’t wait to share!

Black Orchid Empire create huge, memorable rock music that combines heavy-hitting savagery with intense melodic beauty. Their technical, fearlessly complex grooves and gigantic sing-along choruses have already earned them a widespread fanbase.

A ferociously tight live band, Black Orchid Empire have toured Europe and the UK extensively, most recently supporting Skunk Anansie on their sold out 25th anniversary shows, including Brixton Academy. These appearances, as well as previous tours with HED p.e, INME, Black Map and Ravenface, combined with festival slots at Download Festival, Standon Calling, Planet Rockstock, Camden Rocks and Taubertal, have sealed the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with.
