Empyre release new music video for ‘Hit And Run’

EMPYRE have released a new music video!

The new music video, for the track Hit And Run, is taken from the UK rock band’s upcoming new album, Relentless, which is scheduled to be released in March this year.

Speaking about the new song, vocalist/guitarist Henrik Steenholdt says, Hit And Run is about returning to somewhere you once knew well, picturing it as if it had been frozen in time, but on your return the realisation comes that whilst the place still provokes powerful memories so much has changed over the years that there isn’t much to relate to there anymore. Specifically it’s about me returning to a town where I lived in Denmark. It’s quite a sad song, but we felt the sentiment behind it really lent itself to a warm, slightly dreamy, 80s vibe, and that may well be something we want to build on in the future.”

The new music video, filmed at a secret location near their hometown of Northampton, was captured at sunset on a balmy evening late last summer. Due to the hazardous nature of accessing the location they DIY’d the video, taking the smallest crew possible and minimal equipment. The band says, “we couldn’t park that close to the place, so it really was just us and our cameraman Derek dragging a drum kit, a few instruments and a crate of beer, across piles of earth, fly-tipping and razor-wire to get into the place, trying not to rip our clothes, injure ourselves or smash our kit before filming.” The footage was then edited by Henrik, and the video was complete.
