Glasgow, UK’s progressive/alternative rock quartet, Atlas : Empire, is headed to Canada for a string of early-November 2017 tour dates, including performances at Indie Week 2017! We’ve just released the tour dates below but are also celebrating the announcement with the exclusive premiere of the band’s amazing new music video for their single “Diminishing Returns”.

The song comes from the band’s new eleven-track album The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet, which was written over the course of the past six years. It follows their 3 previous EPs, all of which can be grabbed via Bandcamp, where you can pre-order the new on too!.

Said the band of the first single off their upcoming new release: “Each song on our album is written from the perspective of a different person, living in a time where humanity has become completely reliant on technology and automation – ‘Diminishing Returns’ deals with the detrimental affects of routine and through the video, shot by our good friend Stuart Breadner, we tried to convey this gradual loss of control. With each cycle of repetition, our character slips further and further into disorder.”
