"The Dark" is Empire State Human's third album since July 2013, and features
all new songs, including a track with Martin Bowes, of UK band Attrition called "The Digital World", on spoken vocals. Two tracks "Drifting" & "Funhouse" have original lyrics with by Tracey Biscop.
To quote lead vocalist Aidan Casserly - "The album is our most emotional album of all our 20 releases so far. We wanted to create a wall of electronic mood and layers, which builds up as each song begins and ends. Approaching the intimacy of the songs, as we did, was a difficult task, as with all our releases, we still see ourselves as an electronic pop band and not a rock band. But in reality we were ready to create this album, a cinematic, sci-fi styled one"


Artwork by Fontpusher in London, the album is mastered by Pete Maher (Pet Shop Boys, Garbage, Depeche Mode, The Rolling Stones, Nine Inch Nails).
