UK techno industrial outfit EMPIRION have just signed a recording deal with Dependent for their forthcoming album. Oz Mosley and Jamie Smart, who made waves with their high-octane fusion of techno and industrial music in the mid-90s on XL Recordings, have resurrected their project (Morsley had been involved with KLOQ for the last few years) and are putting the finishing touches on their comeback right now. The band: "It has been a long journey to get the new album done, and we cannot think of any better label to help us. We will be amongst some amazing bands there and are so looking forward to bring our new material to old and new fans alike!"
UK legacy industrial festival Infest have also just announced a headline slot for Empirion to coincide with the album release in August this year.
