Present New Single ‘Vampire Empire’
7″ Vinyl Out 20 October
North American Summer Tour Continues
Last night, Big Thief released their highly-anticipated new single, ‘Vampire Empire’, off their forthcoming ‘Vampire Empire’ / ‘Born For Loving You’ 7” out on 20 October. ‘Vampire Empire’ is Big Thief’s most eagerly awaited song ever, with the non-album single taking on a life of its own as it became a live fan favourite. Coming off the back of a Grammy-nominated album and debuting on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, it’s already a viral anthem.
The television performance and hundreds of live performances of ‘Vampire Empire’ took TikTok by storm. 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.”

Big Thief are currently embarking on a North American tour, including a coveted headline spot at Pitchfork Music Festival, as they continue to celebrate their landmark Grammy-nominated 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.
