Northampton rock quartet EMPYRE is thrilled to launch brand new single Cut To The Core (Acoustic), which is set for release today.
With Cut To The Core (Acoustic) EMPYRE continue to build an enviable reputation as a band capable of pushing the boundaries of their own sound. They showed us the power of their acoustic skills with the re-interpretation of Drive, and now, the band takes the challenge even further, by amazing their fans once again, with a new version of Cut To The Core. Fairly loyal to the original, EMPYRE give it a new life, creating a track that needs no “plugs” to make its statement. The single finds the perfect ally in the accompanying video, which adds an extra dimension, underlying the intimate and personal nuances; the setting is curated to the very last detail, displaying elements influenced by the iconic MTV Unplugged series that defined a generation.
Front-man Henrik comments: “Cut To The Core (Acoustic)’is a great way to follow on from the very warm reception Drive (Acoustic) received. It’s perhaps our most upbeat track, and uniquely for our repertoire has a somewhat pop-rock feel to it, yet it retains the acoustic post grunge/hard rock “MTV Unplugged vibe” that we wanted to shine through these acoustic versions.”
The track is accompanied by an exclusive video, which can be viewed below:
