New Release: Big Thief – Vampire Empire

Big Thief treated The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to a brand new and unreleased song entitled ‘Vampire Empire’ this week. While the studio version of the song does not yet exist, it has become a live staple for the band and fan favourite on their current tour, and they couldn’t wait until they got to the studio to give wider audiences a sneak peek. Luckily, The Late Show has provided the band with the perfect opportunity to give hungry fans a way to watch this incredible performance.
