Portsmouth based post-punk trio Fake Empire have emerged from hibernation with this synth-lead offering ‘Half Man‘. The track starts off with Delphic-esque synths but this quickly gives way to Fake Empire’s trademark atmospheric, yet dark sound and moody instrumentation. The end of the track sees things mellow out and drift into electronic obscurity. ‘Half Man’ is Fake Empires’ most anthemic track release yet which is saying something based upon past offerings.
Alongside this track release, Fake Empire have just announced their debut album ‘Flaws’ is set to be released via Portsmouth‘s own Brutalist Records on 8th October 2021. Pre-order is available now via Bandcamp with a limited edition, dark green vinyl currently available.
Speaking of Fake Empire’s recently announced debut album ‘Flaws’, Les Black from the band has said: “This is an album about love, despair, discrimination and Vincent Van Gogh… The album is called Flaws because many of our songs are interwoven with a faint underlying theme of weaknesses, failings, and imperfections.”
