newburgh illuminated and dead mover weekend!

Next weekend we are going to be part of the Newburgh Illuminated festival, a free outdoor festival taking place in downtown Newburgh, NY. We are playing Stage 3 at 10:30PM, immediately after Gyre. Did we mention its free and outdoors? After that, we hit the road for a few dates with Slow Mover, a tour that we’ve been trying to do for a while now and includes our first show in the ‪#‎Boston‬ area! Let’s get rad.

new live video from backroom studios in NJ!

We got a rad live video of our set from the showcase we were a part of at Backroom Studios in Rockaway, NJ. Thank you to the awesome John F Cole III for providing the video! Look at his youtube page more set videos from that night, including our mutant bros Moon Tooth.

June is Fest Month

Get ready to sweat. June is apparently fest month for Dead Empires. We will be playing two different fests- “Stoned To Death Fest” metal fest June 6th in Holyoke MA, and The “Newburgh Illuminated Festival“, a free outdoor festival headlined by Corey Glover of Living Color on June 20th in Newburgh, NY.

TV dudes, More reviews and upcoming shows (pronounced “shoes”)

Our album is now streaming on Spotify, for those of you not into physical format media. Stream it now! I mean if you wanted to stream it on repeat while you’re not home we wouldn’t be against that either.

We spent last weekend up in Plattsburgh, NY at PSTV recording something special that we are excited to share with you all. In the meantime, we thank you all for your support on the new record! Positive reviews keep rolling in… including this in Japanese (translated by Google Translate):

“Threesome progressive rock band from New York United States, the latest installment of Dead Empires. Content roughening down the heavier guitar phrase earth in Stoner Rock natural and it was smoky, is a complex is a strange while thrilling free key Instrumental Rock, involving also the consciousness of hand listen to Groove by band ensemble implosion the destructive power of the outstanding sound pressure to continue to, it will be overwhelmed from beginning to end.

Dizzying along with the transition of deployment, to the sound that continues to transform the appearance there is deep that may of the bottom, you have the spiritual power to feel and even mysterious. Also tenderness also ruthless of the people, light also darkness also soundscape that was created in the Naimaze is intended to feel strongly consistent Art of yet chaos, catchy as if to welcome that you surrender to chaos and even some, it is equipped with a high universality as one of rock album in.

 70’s this work that the Hard Rock progressive rock was sublimated in contemporary along with the best of heaviness, I think whether not be accepted in many Hard Rock Heavy Metal listener along with the high evaluation. Towards bands like tail is like Mastodon and Baroness It is a work that can be strongly recommended.” 

And then we got this one from The SideShow Podcast:

…the album flows magnificently between it’s six tracks. Dead Empires finds that perfect sweet spot that I feel like we’ve only really talked about in the likes of Russian Circles before… it is sludgy, heavy, and beautiful.

Or you can just listen for yourself here:

Thanks fellas. We’ve also got a few NY/MA shows coming up including one that we’re personally really stoked for alongside one of our favorite bands, Lazer/Wulf, and a bunch more that we’ll be announcing soon. Here’s what our schedule looks like currently, and we’ll be adding more dates as the weeks progress…

See you there!

It’s SUMMER! We have a ton of exciting stuff coming up so we figured we’d give all you fine folks a quick update.

This weekend we have two free shows – Friday @ the Newburgh Free Library as part of the Newburgh Illuminated Festival, and then Saturday @ the Lucky 13 Saloon in Brooklyn as part of their Annual Summer Solstice Event. Again, both of these shows are F-R-E-E! Come out and enjoy the nights following the two longest days of the year with us. For free.

The very next day we hit the Isokon with D. James Goodwin again to start recording our new album! We’re aiming for a September release and we’ll have a lot more info on that in the coming weeks. This one has been a long time coming and we’re really excited.

Finally, on 6/28 we hit the road with our mutant brothers Moon Tooth for week of shows. From there, we’ll come back and wrap the album up  and after that we’re heading south for the first time with another week of shows in NC, VA, MD, and more!

What we’re trying to say is, the next four weeks are going to be insane. Hopefully you can join us for at least some part of the experience with us!
