New release - Different Homes

We're super stoked to announce North Empire's 8th release. Our great friends (a few of 'm even family) of Different Homes have their debut EP ready. These 5 hardhitting skate punk / melodic HC anthems will surely be stuck in your head for weeks to come. The EP will be released on September 26th with a release show at Asgard, Beverwijk, NL (9pm / free) with MARCH and The Peterlees. 
Be sure to check this gem out! The first song is already streaming over here.
