Following on from the recent release of their long-awaited and widely acclaimed debut album No Sound Ever Dies, Emperor of Ice Cream has unveiled a new video for their album track ‘Stranded’. The video is dedicated to friend and producer Motorhead legend ‘Fast Eddie Clarke’ who produced three tracks on the album.
Now based in Cork, Waterford, New York and Amsterdam, respectively Eddie Butt, John ‘Haggis’ Hegarty, Graham Finn and Colum Young, returned from a 25-year hiatus to put the finishing touches on an album that was shelved 25 years ago. They discovered a treasure trove of recordings and unfinished ideas that still sounded remarkably fresh despite the passing of time, no more so than with the Fast Eddie produced ‘Stranded’ a track which shows a different side to the band from their previous two singles.

The Emperor’s announced their return with the single ‘Lambent Eyes’ in June and it went straight to number 1 in the iTunes chart, this was followed shortly after with ‘Everyone Looks So Fine’ a single which has caught the attention of radio DJ’s across the globe and continues to gain widespread radio play.
Twenty-five years in the making, the appropriately-titled No Sound Ever Dies is testament to that very notion, and a poignant end to this chapter for a band who may have once burned out, but didn’t fade away.
