symmetry.jpg Jeremy Fowler, lead singer of New Empire, talks on The Green Room with Cam Want about the band’s new album, Symmetry.

Jeremy describes the lead-up to the release of their newest album, along with the memories associated with its creation. "I really wanted to evolve as a writer," says Jeremy. "…there was definitely a lot of experimentation on this album."

He also discusses the experience of touring with acts such as Good Charlotte, Owl City and Simple Plan, and the privilege of learning the trade from more seasoned bands.

Ghosts was the last track to be written, and was conceived as quite a different track than the soulful, R&B style song that made its way to the front of the album. Jeremy then explains the motives behind the lyrics of the song, which focuses on the emotional baggage carried into many relationships, and how we can accept each other in spite of it.

Jeremy also talks of the experience of creating the
Ghosts music video (see below), with the lows of near-hypothermia when filming outside to the high of hiring the iconic Mustang-convertible featured in the clip.

Clips from other songs are also featured, such as
One Heart, Million Voices, which Jeremy describes as being one of his favourites.
