The eagerly anticipated second album by British pop rockers Empire Nation will be released to the masses this Spring. The project Closer includes a collaboration with Philippa Hanna and is being produced by Andy Baker of Resound Media.
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!"
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.
