Thorium comes with second single for the second album called: Empires In The Sun.

Today, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 5th, THORIUM has released their second official video single ‘Empires in the Sun’, off their long-awaited second album of the same name.

“’Empires in the Sun’ explores the age-old notion of the ephemeral nature of greatness and glory; on how even the proudest and most unshakable achievements, institutions and ambitions are ultimately destined to be swept under by the tides of time. In the lyrics we present a character, driven by wild ambition to build, to rule – and ultimately to conquer and subjugate. Taking a cue from Percy Shelley’s classic ‘Ozymandias’, the ruler forges his mighty works with a cruel and terrible hand, certain they will stand for all eternity and for all to see; yet for all their grandeur, the lone and level sands are all that remain, in the end.” – Tom Tee
