We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Black Orchid Empire’s music video for their song “Burn” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s latest album Yugen, which is available now through Long Branch Records.
Black Orchid Empire vocalist/guitarist Paul Visser commented:
One of my earliest negative memories is sitting in my high chair as a toddler watching a tiny ’80s TV as the Challenger space shuttle blew up in mid air. I based these lyrics on that experience – partly my memories of it, partly my thoughts about it now. The music is based around a big riff and soaring chorus with some cool switchups towards the end. I love the melancholy breakdown and chanty buildup section in the middle, it’s powerful and poignant and beautiful as well as technical.

About the band:
Black Orchid Empire create dense, powerful rock music that combines fearless complexity, aggressive heaviness and beautiful, hook-laden melody.
With a gargantuan sound and energetic live performance, the three-piece hailing from London have been unleashing their ferociously tight show across Europe, including a UK tour with Hed PE, several headline runs and much-lauded appearances at Standon Calling, Planet Rockstock, Camden Rocks Festival or German Taubertal Festival amongst others. Their critically-acclaimed debut album Archetype garnered widespread media attention, with the single “God Is Awake” being selected as Kerrang! Radio’s track of the week.
Having played alongside heavyweights such as Biffy Clyro, Editors and Skunk Anansie and with a dedicated, growing fan base, Black Orchid Empire demand your attention.
