Empire State Bastard Share Striking New Video For ‘The Looming’

A new video for Empire State Bastard’s ‘The Looming’ has just dropped – one that matches the track’s quality and intensity.

The third single taken from the debut album of Simon Neil and Mike Vennart’s side-project band, ‘The Looming’ has a phenomenal, crushing strength to it.

And now it has a wild new video that goes with it, which sees a warrior head out into a desert that looks like something out of ‘Dune’, before a raft of psychedelic visuals enter the frame.

Have a watch of the video below, which was directed and animated by Mike Bourne.

Empire State Bastard have so far been coy about commenting on their forthcoming debut album ‘Rivers of Heresy’, which arrives September 01.

Similarly, they’ve been men of few words upon the release of ‘The Looming’ video, saying simply: “ESB x Mike Bourne. The end is looming!”

Frankly, the video speaks for itself.

See below for Empire State Bastard’s upcoming live shows.
