Full Product Description
Said the band's frontman Ed Bird, "We're getting really excited about releasing 'Closer'. "We've been working with some great co-writers and producers. Fans will have heard tasters on our tour last year so we're looking forward to finishing it for them. This album is all about getting real with life and closer with God. We had a lot of fun filming the video for 'Fire Fall Down'. I won't give away too much now, but let's just say the video involved skateboarders, all kinds of dancers and lots of sparks!"
I have a lot of time for bands like Empire Nation who have developed their craft through the long exhausting haul of ministry events and Christian fests. Their sound on this album is both organic and sonically satisfying while their lyrics speak of passion for the lover of their souls. This is just the kind of band the Church needs to support and lovers of uplifting Christian music need to buy. My particular favourites are "Fire Fall Down", "You're Not Alone" and "My Soul Was Chosen" and with a strong lead singer in Ed Bird, a surprise appearance by Philippa Hanna on "You're Not Alone" and some clever production from Andy Baker this adds up to a demonstration that even in a British Christian scene clogged with far too many worship albums and a mainstream arena showing an ever increasing number of bands prepared to hide their faith behind layers of poetic metaphor, there is still room for in-your-face proclamation delivered with passion and rock music attitude.
Empire Nation launched in 2010 and are made up of four friends - Ed, Sam, Sam and Sam (no, it’s not a typo – they really are all called Sam). Their sound and style is classically British; high-energy, solid rock-worship.
Empire Nation bring a sense of humour and humility to whatever they do, living to serve others through their music and ministry. They are a project band that turn their love of God and music into a mission platform. As well as being keen song-writers and performers, they write for a few magazines, run their own blog and partner with a number of charities on projects.
