Our long time favorite and heart pummeling crooner Michael Joseph Nelson has released his new EP as BANNERS, and the Liverpool singer songwriter continues to move the soul and tug at every corner of the heart with his anthemic ballads on the release. Empires on Fire is the title track from the five track alt pop release, and it’s quite the widescreen burst of catharsis, particularly propelled by Nelson’s ever affecting voice. It’s a must for fans of Keane or Coldplay’s key tinkling, guitar effusive ballads. BANNERS also recently unveiled a music video for EP opener and previously featured stellar song, Someone To You. Watch the clip below.  Stream BANNERS’ Empires On Fire EP in full on Soundcloud, here. Get it, here.

From those very first days as RAINES, BANNERS’ Michael Joseph Nelson has been melting our hearts with his poignant and beautiful music. The Liverpool native will be embarking on a new 14 city headlining North American tour come February 8th, and I highly recommend you make it out to one of the shows. Michael’s voice is even more magnificent live, if you can believe that to be possible. In the meantime, BANNERS premiered a music video for recent single Holy Ground, a tender drifter with rich orchestral swells. The video even stars actress Ashley Greene (Twilight, Rogue). It’s a visually captivating treat for the eyes while BANNERS leads us on a path to emotional catharsis with his soaring ballad. You can purchase the single now from iTunes.
