Big Thief have shared new single “Vampire Empire”, the track is off their forthcoming “Vampire Empire”/”Born For Loving You 7”. The track was 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. The band are currently on a North American tour, behind their album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You. Big Thief’s guitarist Buck Meek will also be releasing his third solo album later this summer.

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.”
