Alec Empire Gets Set To Kick Off European Tour

Alec Empire is set to kick off his The Past - The Present - The Future tour this Thursday, October 15th in la Tronche, France. Empire has released a short video trailer on YouTube, in German, as a teaser for the tour. The European tour is currently scheduled to run until early December where it will finish up in Rome, Italy.

Fresh off supporting Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails on their European leg of the tour, Empire will bring his live setup to the UK showcasing material from a career spanning almost two decades. Empire has collaborated with Robbie Furze from The Big Pink on the track, "If You Live or Die" off his last album and has produced and written Patrick Wolf's lead single, "Vultures." Wolf also appeared on stage with Empire during his sold out London date at The Underworld earlier this year and looks certain to join up with his partner in crime for the Islington Academy show in London on November 19th.

Having recently remixed IAMX, ex Sneaker Pimp, Chris Corner's new single "Terrified," the hardest working Berliner in music's next project is a team up with Major Lazer and Saul Williams for some new tracks and a remix special with Dillinger Escape Plan later this year. As a special treat for UK fans, Empire has roped in up and coming alt techno-core outfit, Motor, who are currently on tour with Depeche Mode as support for his UK dates.
