London rockers BLACK ORCHID EMPIRE have released a video for ‘Celebrity Summer’, the first single taken from their forthcoming album Yugen – out 25th May 2018 via Long Branch Records.
“Making the video for ‘Celebrity Summer’ was a blast – we shot the whole thing in our studio so everything is super in-your-face and intense,” says vocalist/guitarist Paul Visser. “Scott Canty from Dark North Media did an incredible job of pushing our performance to the limit as he captured it – he totally destroyed us!”
