Collapse Under The Empire are back! The band releases a new album titled Recurring as well as a strictly limited retrospective vinyl box with 11 LPs called Works 08-23.
For the past 15 years Chris Burda and Martin Grimm have been presenting a genre mix of post-rock, soundtrack, shoegazing, ambient to ice-cold electronica. Their music is now used in Hollywood trailers, such as Brightburn by James Gunn and in many documentaries. Their soundtrack-like compositions have always been perfect for cinematic soundtracks. With the new album, the duo has released an impressive number of nine studio albums, three EPs and various singles to date. Collapse Under The Empire have established themselves internationally in the post-rock scene.
Their new album Recurring can be described as an orchestral post-rock epic, which raises the sound and complexity of the band to a new level. Thematically, the album revolves around the perpetual cycle of life, in which everything on our planet is constantly repeated. After destruction and death-purification, peace and redemption follows. The album is somber, melancholic and hopeful at the same time. Recurring creates a powerful sound that combines ethereal soundscapes with their signature guitar-driven post-rock sound.
The strictly limited 11x LP Box Works 08-23 will also be released in the fall of 2023. The new album Recurring will only be available as vinyl in this LP box. The LP box can only be purchased on the band’s website and can already be pre-ordered. The box contains the complete back catalog of the band from 2008-2023 including all albums, eps, split ep, b-sides, rarities, non-album tracks as well as singles, in a vinyl box with 11 vinyls. With this box 5 albums and 4 EP`s from the years 2008- 2014 appear for the first time on vinyl. This is a must have and collector’s item for every true fan of the band.
