Holy shit, we did it. We are officially the BSP Lounge‘s 2013 Hudson Valley Battle of the Bands Champions!

Dead Empires - 2013 Hudson Valley Battle of the Bands Champions

THANK YOU to everyone who helped us succeed at the Hudson Valley Battle of the Bands. There were over 30 other bands in this thing, including many of our friends- Afterhours, Nautilus, The Blind Ambassadors, Minotaur’s Redemption– and we have to give credit where credit is due. In the end we fought hard and took home that trophy, and can’t wait to get back to The IsOkOn (where we recorded Waiting in Waves) and in case you don’t know, we won the chance get some new tracks down! The entire experience was awesome- and a sincere thank you to everyone who came out and supported us, cheered for us, or voted for us- we couldn’t have done it without you.

And more importantly, the entire BOTB was a donation-only charity event helped raise over $1K for the Ulster County SPCA, a total we are happy to have contributed to!

So with that, we are happy to announce that we are hard at work on a bunch of new tunes- and if you have been to any of our recent shows, you’ve heard a bunch of em already. So I guess it’s not that new of an announcement. We’ve got a couple more we’re still working on, and once they’re done we’ll jump in the studio and get em out. In the meantime, we’ll keep you all posted on our timetable!

We have a ton of huge shows coming up in July and August- including a couple festivals, shows with Jucifer and Hush, our return to Long Island, a show at Europa and The End Records, and a couple with our friends Moon Tooth- so hit up our tour dates and come hang out!

Once again, THANK YOU to everyone who supported us and officially helped us gain the title of BEST BAND IN THE HUDSON VALLEY! That’s right, suck it Pete Seeger!
