Black Orchid Empire drop acoustic version of ‘Vertigo’

The band just confirmed shows with Skunk Anansie, Ravenface and Hypophora.

London rockers Black Orchid Empire have released a video for their acoustic rendition of Vertigo, a track taken from their latest album Yugen, released on 25 May 2018 via Long Branch Records.

Vocalist/guitarist Paul Visser comments on the track: “This is a song about admitting you’re scared of something and doing it anyway. We actually tried it as a full band arrangement but it never really clicked until we stripped everything out and it became a simple acoustic track.”

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 p.e, several headline runs and much-lauded appearances at Standon Calling, Planet Rockstock, Camden Rocks Festival, German Taubertal Festival and more.

Having played alongside heavyweights such as Biffy Clyro, Editors and Skunk Anansie and with a dedicated, growing fanbase, Black Orchid Empire demand your attention.

Black Orchid Empire have a busy summer of live shows, including a tour with Ravenface and a one-off show supporting Skunk Anansie at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
