Breaking Rad: Empty Orchestra

Chris Rotolo July 3, 2012 Breaking Rad, Features No Comments

The listener can hear the abrasive rust ingrained in each genre-hopping compositions brought to life by Empty Orchestra, an Industrialized outfit not in style, but in citizenship, as The Hold Steady-influenced (among others) Flint, Michigan denizens walk the artistic line, stumbling like a classily-clothed drunkard recently emerged from a raucous basement rager, between Folk music heroes and Rock N’ Roll auteurs…but don’t take my word for it.  Streetlight Manifesto’s Tomas Kalnoky was captivated enough to sign the collective to his recently founded Pentimento Music Company label, which will be putting out the band’s forthcoming LP One More Time, Altogether Now, which is slated for a september release.

Scope out “The Ballad Of Bull Run” below and check out Empty Orchestra on it’s national tour when the group rolls through the Northeast in August (and much like Streetlight Manifesto’s antics, there are no Garden State dates scheduled).
