New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Social Repose, the electronic project of Youtube personality, Richie Giese, has released the new EP 'Empress' today which has quickly climbed to #9 on the iTunes Alternative chart, just behind The Killers' latest.

A music video for the title track is now streaming at

A certified social media phenomenon, Geise's YouTube channel has generated over 140 million views and has seen music sales and streaming increase every month since his debut EP, 'Yalta,' was released in late 2015, generating multiple million stream singles and tens of thousands of units sold with plans for his highly anticipated sophomore release, 'Empress,' set to be released on October 6th 2017.

Last month, Giese told Alternative Press, "My last album, Yalta was more of a transitional record for me, whereas Empress is me honing that dark, atmospheric sound. I released 'Filthy Pride' about a year ago and wrote the record around that single because the theme really struck me as something that needed to be talked about."

He adds, "I'd describe the new record as a mix between Daughter and Twenty One Pilots. Or at least those were the more important inspirations while writing. I was very careful to sew the music videos into the narrative of the songs. They all connect and create a world around the characters that first appeared in the 'Filthy Pride' music video. Even though the record is a brief six tracks, I made sure there is absolutely no filler material. Every song has a purpose in the tracklisting and every video that goes along with it attempts to enrich that purpose."

Social Repose will be on a headline tour this fall with support from Hotel Books and the Funeral Portrait. A UK/EU tour follows in November.Tickets for all the shows are on sale at

Hailing from Washington, D.C., Social Repose found it's modest beginnings in the bedroom of singer, songwriter, producer and personality Richie Giese in late 2011. Social Repose, stylistically dubbed "S/R", began as a synth-pop act used as a creative outlet that blended experiences, personal struggles and fictional character storylines into one creative unique experience that fans nation-wide have come to embrace and receive. For most, Social Repose is more than just another creative display of well thought-out lyrics strung together by catchy melodies. More than anything it's become a life style, a personal expression and a reality.

Richie's career over the past few years has seen an explosion of fandom as hundreds of thousands have become apart of the S/R experience. Richie himself is known for his unique, yet tasteful appearance that fans have come to embrace. With his trademark purple-feathered headdress and war paint, fans everywhere have shown their support by mirroring his imagery at shows across the world on various tours, conventions and appearances.

Since S/R's inception, Richie has played numerous shows in support of national/ International touring acts such as The Millionaires, Our Last Night, and SayWeCanFly, along with appearances at major conventions such as Vidcon, and Playlist Live in both D.C. and Orlando, FL where he as appeared as a featured guest. In addition, S/R was voted best up and coming artist (twice) in D.C's Deli Magazine, while holding the #1 spot in electronic genre charts (D.C.) of Reverbnation while being featured on some of the internets most popular podcasts such as Heardwell Radio, The Andy Show and Shane Dawson & Friends.

Much of Richie's success could be attributed to his strong commitment to music and social media, but also the personality attached to the character. Outside S/R's rapidly growing Facebook popularity, Richie's YouTube career has also seen a significant influx as fan support over the past months has boomed.

Social Repose will be looking to continue building on his success as he continues to be a model for musicians everywhere, showing that hard work, a strong will to succeed, and dedication to your craft can make a global impression.
