Empire State Bastard Streaming New Track “Moi?”


Empire State Bastard have released yet another advance single from their debut album “Rivers Of Heresy“. The song “Moi?” is now available across all leading digital service providers and can be heard below.

The grindcore-themed project was formed by Biffy Clyro‘s Simon Neil and Mike Vennart. Their lineup has since grown to include acclaimed drummer Dave Lombardo (Mr. Bungle, ex-Slayer, etc.) and touring bassist Naomi Macleod (Bitch Falcon).

Roadrunner Records will have “Rivers Of Heresy” out on September 01st. Neil said of “Moi?“:

“‘Moi?‘ is about people who just no matter what you talk about — and I’m guilty of this at points – will never ever see the truth, even if you dangle it in front of them. Ignorance can feel like a badge of honour these days, with people being stubborn and not being willing to enlighten themselves. I cannot believe we’ve got to the stage where that’s to be cherished.”
