China-based metalcore act An Empty City has released a lyric video for a track entitled ‘Backlash’ off their debut EP released back in 2016.
According to the band, “This video was shot in April during the quarantine time when there were no live shows. We decided to make a live video for this old song “Backlash” because this song should be a clear message against all the lies, prejudice, racism, and brutalities during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
As the virus seems to be settling down in China, shows have been back up and running. Indie rock band Hiperson had announced tourdates and all dates were sold out within hours. Likewise, An Empty City are ready to hit the road and are bringing a few friends along for the ride.
“We are going for a southwest China tour in August along with Leviathan (Xi’an), Dying Tonight (Kunming) and Bewilder (Chengdu). We will play at Xi’an, Chengdu, Changsha and Guangzhou.”
The band has also announced recording for their debut full-length is almost done and are planning debut a track off the album by year’s end.
