In December, The Empire Shall Fall released their EP, Volume 1: Solar Plexus. The effort was progressive, experimental, forward-thinking, and eclectic.
Now comes word that the band — featuring former Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach — have started tracking new demos for the follow-up.
Months ago, the band revealed it was “working on Volume 2 (and Volume 3). In the preliminary stage we can safely say that Volume 2 will be a heavier record (this is intentional, and goes with the concept). We have most of the songs in their skeletal structure, and over the next few months hope to polish things up so we can be recording in the spring (this time hopefully with a faster turn around!).”
On Twitter, The Empire Shall Fall now report that they’ve been working on two songs that they’ll soon send to Jesse so he can record his vocal parts for the demos.
No word yet on when the EP will be out, but you can bet your bottom dollar it’s going to be rad.
