O Emperor Announce Video for Upcoming Single ‘Holy Fool’
Rising Irish talents O Emperor have unveiled the video to their new single ‘Holy Fool’, to be released in the UK on April 15. The track, with its ghostly vocals against a backdrop of hazy reverb and propulsive rhythms, is the first single to be taken from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album Vitreous, due for a UK release on June 17.

Vitreous was self-recorded and produced in the band’s very own studio (Big Skin HQ) in Cork. Big Skin was (literally) built from the ground up and everything from label administration to recording happens inside its grubby, fire-stained walls. The resulting recordings are – say O Emperor – a direct representation of this operation, being the band’s most potent and distinct work to date; a stamp moulded from their many meandering sessions there.
The new album comes described by the band as ‘presenting the listener with a stark, polychrome and pixelated picture’. Further details, including news of upcoming live shows, will be announced shortly.
