"Semaphore" is available for pre-order here: Watch the visualiser for "Death From Above" here: Black Orchid Empire guitarist and singer Paul Visser about the new single: “This is one of the heavier songs from Semaphore, and features a riff we've been tinkering with since touring Yugen. We're experimenting on this record with pushing our boundaries both in terms of melody and technicality, and Death From Above is an example of one of the more progressive metal-influenced songs on the album. Lyrically it's inspired by the amazing work of Richard Morgan and his Takeshi Kovacs series, he's one of my favourite SF writers. The song is about the winged, raptor-like Martians that feature in his books (and more recently Altered Carbon on Netflix), and the technology they left behind. I especially love the middle section, it's so much fun to sing over that dreamy, ambient landscape. Then Dave and Billy lock in with their syncopated rhythm and it's an awesome moment. We can't wait to see the crowd reaction when we play this one live.” Tracklist "Semaphore": 01 Emissaries 02 Singularity 03 Natural Selection 04 Motorcade 05 Red Waves 06 Heliopause 07 Winter Keeps Us Warm 08 Dust 09 Faces 10 Death From Above 11 Evergreen 12 Monolith 13 Crash   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, 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, Standon Calling, Planet Rockstock, Camden Rocks and Taubertal, have sealed the bands reputation as a force to be reckoned with. Having released their debut album 'Archetype' in 2016 to universal acclaim, Black Orchid Empire signed with German label Long Branch Records to release the follow up album 'Yugen'. Both albums received stellar reviews and over 1,000,000+ combined streams. The band are now looking ahead to the future with their next album 'Semaphore' – a Sci-Fi concept record that sees them continue to push the musical envelope. Pre-order the album HERE. “Beautiful melodies coupled with tear-your-face-off riffs. Bright fresh new stars” Skin, Skunk Anansie “Unbeatable in-your-face talent” MOSH “Wicked, behemoth tunes” POWERPLAY For More Info Visit:
