Today, on July 30th, 2021, Collapse Under The Empire reveals the brand new single ‘Section V’. The single is mostly electronic, still purely instrumental but no longer located in post-rock… but it still features some post-rocky guitars. The project comes without a concept or story to achieve a certain emptiness and purification.
The band was founded in the summer of 2008 in Hamburg and released their debut album “Systembreakdown” in spring 2009. Since then, Collapse Under The Empire has released instrumental, experimental, and very atmospheric music on seven studio albums, 3 EPs, and various singles covering musical styles from post-rock to ambient to ice-cold electronica with references to Talk Talk and Mogwai.
Since their second album “Find A Place To Be Safe” (2010), Collapse Under The Empire has established themselves internationally in the post-rock scene and made a name for themselves. Influential international magazines such as Rock Sound, Q-Magazine, and Clash are always enthusiastic about the band’s cinematic and independent sound. Since 2012 the band releases their music on their own label Finaltune Records. In 2020 the duo released their 8th album “Everything We Will Leave Beyond Us”. With it, the band set to music a dark world that has got out of control. Hotspots everywhere, above all the coronavirus, environmental destruction, the greed of mankind, injustice, exploitation, poverty, war, and resistance.
