The Helsinki based rock outfit The Empire Strikes is usually a quite frequent presence at the shows we go to in Finland. The last time we caught them on a stage was as the support band for Royal Republic at Tavastia and that has been now already way over a year and a half ago! Due to the well-known circumstances that everyone suffered under, they had to let go of their traditional anniversary show at On The Rocks in September 2020. But now they’re back! Finally! And they were ready to get rockin’ and get rollin’, catching up for all the missed gigs on their (belated 8th and) 9th anniversary show!
