The Seattle, WA based AWAKEN THE EMPIRE manages to fuse atmospheric alt-rock with raw, heavy emotion. Encompassed by a sound that plays out more like a cinematic movie score, and the group’s constant use of encrypted codes and hidden messages, AWAKEN THE EMPIRE is definitely not your typical rock band.
The group’s much-anticipated debut offering ‘Aurora’ is set for a July 24th release through Another Century and you can view their striking new music video for the track, ‘Insomniacs Unite’, watch here:
Damien Lawson (vocals) states:
“AWAKEN THE EMPIRE is more than just a band. We are a movement. We are here to inspire people to fight for their dreams, and fight to have their voices heard. Our new record, Aurora, is the product of that fight. We have been through an unbelievable amount of ups and downs in the years making this album, and we’ve had everything taken away from us, both physically, and emotionally. Through it all, the one constant for us, the light at the end of the tunnel, was this record coming out. The chance to have our message heard. We are here to make a statement, and Aurora is that statement. Aurora is that message.“
