Manchester based metalcore troupe Empires Fade have just confirmed that they’ll be self-releasing their debut full-length record, titled ‘The Edge Of Existence’, on August 3rd 2015. You can take a look at the album artwork and a statement from the band about the release below:
“We are beyond excited to finally announce that our debut album ‘The Edge Of Existence’ will be released Monday 3rd August 2015 for FREE DOWNLOAD and we will be releasing a brand new song on Saturday at 3pm.
We have been working on this record for nearly 2 years of our lives and over the last few months we have been going over our options of how to release it. After speaking to numerous record labels, we realised we simply hadn’t found the right home for Empires Fade. We were talking about completely self funding the release but ultimately all we want is for the songs to reach as many people as possible.
We decided we would rather have 20,000+ free downloads than sell 1000 CDs.
If you want to support the band you will still be able to purchase the record digitally from iTunes/BandCamp – or simply pick up some merch from our store. If you choose to download it for free thats awesome, the only thing we ask is that you help us by spreading the word if you enjoy it. Show the record to 5 friends. We want to thank everyone that has stuck by us during this process, we are stoked for you all to hear it.
Empires Fade x”
More news surrounding the release, including the full tracklisting, will be confirmed over the coming weeks.
