My Autumn Empire // Tape Folk…

Some words from Ben :

“Around mid 2013, whilst I was working on The Visitation, my computer decided to go to sleep and not wake up, like they sometimes do. Instead of spiralling into despair, or maybe as well as, I walked away from any attempts to fix it and chose instead to set up my 4-track and record some folk songs that have been with me since childhood. They have remained unreleased ‘til now but I thought I’d throw a couple up here for the hell of it…”


Component#4 // Single and Album

We are very excited to announce our first release of the new year as the download single, The Call Centre, by Component#4 – from his forthcoming album,…Into Memory…


The single is available from our Bandcamp page as a 5 track EP and also features remixes from Field Harmonics, Benjamin Thomas Holton (My Autumn Empire/epic45) and Alex Keane (who also provided the artwork for the single and album). Click HERE.

The single is also accompanied by a video which was produced and directed by Angela Slater and shot around the Black Country area of the West Midlands where Mike Rowley of Component#4 grew up, and which forms the backdrop for much of the inspiration behind the album. The video is also included in the download bundle via our Bandcamp page.
