theexplodingogre Kickstart the Empire is a continuation of the punk-with-violin-and-electronics direction of Crumbs. It is time to be angry at the neo-traditionalists, the would be emperors, the xenophobes, and those who leave you in shackles. Favorite track: Who Whips BAND.

jgthefanboy I think Kickstart has one of the best representations of what Sieben does live that I’ve heard thus far. It gives me a sense of excitement for what he may come up with in the future.

despicablesi sublime!
It's like being on a rollercoaster of trippy bliss plummeting into a pool of Serotonin!

Damián The idiot test has started and most people are not passing it. Matt is not happy about it and this gives his romantic sound a great touch of post punk. This is a bit darker than the last Sieben album, but it contains the same mixture of beauty and soft power we have been getting from Matt in the past few years. Musically, it is a step forward without a ny doubt. The "band" versions are specially mighty and refreshing.

Kickstart The Empire Give me new old days. Those heady, Summer old ways. Gilded history and gold rays. People knew their place. Come on, let’s do The Idiot Test... Kickstart the Empire! Come on all you good people out there. Kickstart the Empire! What’s wrong with all you damn people down there? Heave those mighty oars! We can row this land to brave new shores. Heave those mighty oars! We can make ‘then’ now great again. Kickstart the Empire! We all need a good plunder now and then. Kickstart the Empire! Free the chains of reality. Kickstart the Empire!

Who Whips 03:31
Who whips Who whips this world? The twisted truth in action, simple lies to catch them. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? The basic snatch reaction, our worst nature sanctioned. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? The nasty bastard faction, not a law to dash them. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? Bauble greed and teeming, rival primal dealing. Who whips this world? Who whips this world? The I’m-alright-Jack chancer, fuck-the-rest advancer. Who whips this world? The world will fall to bits. The world is going to shit. We just stand and watch it happen.

about

Kickstart The Empire! Is the glorious new Sieben EP, available in two fine Empirical FORMATS: VINYL 7”, and THIS, the EXTENDED DIGITAL EP.

RELEASE DATE 27th June 2019

Kickstart The Empire!
Come on, let’s kick-start an Empire, you and I!
We all need a good plunder now and then.

People knew their place, and irony hadn’t yet been invented.
