It's about resilience and strength.”

Jack Cochrane said of the album, “The universe delivered us time to create a record where we finally felt we could address some of the topics, be it societal or spiritual, that we have been dying to scream out. There are songs about the highs & lows, stuff we really want to talk about and things we cannot help but feel, but have just never made the space to.“
Also, the band has urged their fans to “bombard” the band's record label in order to their new album released a week early so that they can hear it before their UK tour kicks off at Bristol O2 Academy on October 2.
The band shared on social media, “Growing up watching bands we always wished we could hear their new album before going to the show. We asked our record label Parlophone if we could release out second record 'Burn The Empire' early to allow us all to be able to connect with the new songs together and absolutely rip it up on the tour – to this we were told no.”
The band continued, “Since then, we have found out the records are ready to go to the store and can be delivered to you all. Please feel free to bombard @Parlophone on this post, on Twitter or in other fashion, and if you agree and think we should be able to put our record out whenever we want.”
