What happens when the pride of Tasmania's indie scene, Empire Park joins forces with Geelong's premium touring act, Club Yorke? You get a mammoth east-coast tour that will blow your socks off. With both bands now based out of Melbourne, Empire Park and Club Yorke will take to the road from Tasmania to Sydney.
Both band's have a stage show not to be missed and with new music to share, you'll definitely want to get yourself to a show!
Victorian-based indie pop-rock outfit Club Yorke, previously known as Residual, burst onto the music scene in 2014 and have built a name in their home-town of Geelong that has seen them play sold out shows and take to the stage supporting British India, Bluejuice, The Getaway Plan and The Jungle Giants, to name a few.
In 2016 the band’s sophomore EP Haunt debuted at #3 on iTunes Australia’s Indie chart, which was followed by sold-out regional Victorian and Sydney shows.
Club Yorke took some time out in 2017 to write new songs and move to Melbourne, setting themselves up for a strong start in 2018. With a new single Stop The Bleeding on the horizon, Club Yorke are about to deliver to their fans exactly what they’ve been waiting for. An emotionally charged track that encompasses everything you love about the band; gritty, beautifully haunting vocals and cascading riffs.
Watch this space… the boys are back!
With an explosive live show driven by a passionate belief of each song’s story, Empire Park delivers a sprawling, nostalgia-tinged melting pot of alternative rock, singer-songwriter storytelling and ambition. The band was hand-picked for their hometown leg of Falls Festival in Marion Bay four times, culminating in a primetime slot on the Field Stage in 2016, and most recently supported Nothing But Thieves on their sold-out Australian tour.
Set to release their debut EP on May 18th, “Nobody’s Watching Me” is Empire Park’s first full body of work, encapsulating the band's versatility of soaring anthemic rock and alt-pop on ‘Tranquiliser’ and ‘God Knows’ to the endearing, stripped back piano ballad, ‘Wandering’.
The band will embark on their first East-Coast tour in support of the EP release.
