Crown The Empire
Since bursting onto the scene in 2011 with their debut EP, "Limitless", Crown The Empire have shown no signs of slowing down. 2012 brought the band to the forefront with their debut full-length, "The Fallout", and a cocktail of world tours, magazine covers, and die hard fan dedication ensued, pushing ' The Fallout' to sell over 85,000 copies to date. Their sophomore follow up ' The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways' further explored the conceptual world within their previous release, and was greeted with even more enthusiasm, reflected in the 75,000copies sold in half the time of their previous effort.
In 2016, Crown The Empire released their new album ' Retrograde' . This record sees a departure from the conceptual world that defined their past efforts, and instead the band takes you on a voyage into the reality of their lives as a band of twenty-something' s growing up under a spotlight, and the way they see the world around them. Bathed in cinematic production reminiscent of the space epics ' Interstellar' or ' 2001: A Space Odyssey' , combined with blistering guitar riffs comparable to the likes of ' Incubus' or other alt-rockers of a time gone by, Crown The Empire have made their identity known with Retrograde, proving they have the song-writing prowess backed by an understanding and aptitude for cultural identity that has them ready to stand amongst the giants.
There is nothing fake about Retrograde. The 13 song LP blends seamlessly from track to track, allowing fans to truly embrace Crown The Empire as a soundtrack to their lives in an unparalleled way. Nothing is holding Crown back from being one of the biggest bands in rock, and ' Retrograde' marks only the beginning of what will be a cultural impact the world over.
ERRA is a progressive Metalcore band from Birmingham, Alabama. Since their formation in 2009, they have self-released 2 EPs, titled ERRA and Andromeda. They went on to sign with Tragic Hero Records and release their debut album Impulse in 2011. Their second album, Augment, which was released 2 years later, reached number 1 on the ARIA heatseekers chart. It was the album that started to see them gain a lot more traction, and consequently was the only other record to be released under the label. After becoming more successful with Augment, ERRA signed with Sumerian Records and released their 3rd EP titled Moments of Clarity. This EP is the first release to not feature unclean vocalist and co-founding member, Garrison Lee. Shortly before the EP was released, ERRA recruited a replacement vocalist, Ian Eubanks to perform on the record and subsequently become the new frontman. After the release of Moments of Clarity - as early as December 2014, guitarist Jesse Cash began working on the next record, their vocalist also started to write lyrics for the album. In August 2015, Ian Eubanks decided to step down as unclean vocalist, stating that he struggled to perform his vocal parts during touring, and that he was no longer able to scream correctly. Consequently, ERRA once again was on the search for another unclean vocalist. The new vocalist JT Cavey (ex Texas in July) was announced through the release of the lead single Luminesce for their upcoming record Drift. The record was released in April 2016, and is the latest release for the band.
