It's unusual in the modern age for an unreleased song to become a fan favourite based on live performance only, but after Big Thief performed Vampire Empire on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, it immediately resonated with the band's following. Now, accompanied by rollicking love-song b-side Born For Loving You, the song is getting a strictly limited first pressing 7" release, pressed to recycled "eco-vinyl". - Flying Out

Limited, first pressing available on Eco Vinyl, featuring the tracks Vampire Empire and Born for Loving You. Big Thief present new single, 'Vampire Empire', off their forthcoming Vampire Empire / Born For Loving You 7" out on 20 October. This year, the song took on a life of it's own after a performance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and has become a live fan favorite. Recorded and produced by Dom Monks at Guissona, Spain's Teatre de cal Eril Studio during a recent tour, Vampire Empire speaks to the beautiful complexity of gender identity and breaking destructive internal cycles.

Of the song, Adrianne Lenker adds, "For me, it's about getting out of toxic internal patterns - leaving the empire of energy drains that obscure pure essence, learning about what healthy boundaries are, and finding the power to implement them for the possibility of giving and receiving (both inwardly and outwardly) unbroken and infinite Love."
