Hailing from the Czech republic and delivering the kind of catchy, chorus-filled tunes that you’d expect to sell out stadiums, Exit Empire are one of the world’s best kept secrets. Playing a mix of alternative metal, modern rock, and post-hardcore, replete with infectious melodies, soaring vocals, and emotive performances, Exit Empire’s self-titled debut album is an extremely solid listen.
Today we bring you the band’s latest music video for the song “Forging My Own Crown.” Check it out below.
Frontman Rafael Eimut shares his thoughts: “With this song, we wanted to express the duality of emotions you experience when creating something. Whether it’s art, music or starting a business. You must be strong to follow your passion and vision, but at the same time, you are extremely vulnerable and basically hard to live with.”
“So we wanted to give something back to our friends and fans who support us in our own journey of creating music,” says the director, Exit Empire’s own guitarist Timmy Ruzicka. “We invited them to a party in our rehearsal room, grabbed a camera and just shot the whole thing unscripted. The result is a very authentic video with a positive vibe, the one we’ve been gaining strength from because of these people. Now we hope it will give strength back to our listeners and viewers.”
