If you know who we are, then we don’t need to tell you who Lazer/Wulf is. If you somehow missed that train, for shame! But here’s your chance. Sometimes, a special bond is formed between similarly disturbed individuals, like the Notebook, but with chainsaws. and guitars. We had been following their music before sharing a stage together last year, and to say this band rules is an understatement. This will be a week of strange instrumental magic. Can’t wait to see all your faces!

8/25 – Kung Fu Necktie, Philadelphia PA w/ X-Hunters (RSVP)
8/26 – Saint Vitus Bar, Brooklyn NY w/ Chrome Over Brass (RSVP)
8/27 – The Anchor, Kingston NY w/ Top Secret Special Guest! (RSVP)
8/28 – RPM Fest, Greenfield MA w/ Moon Tooth (RSVP)

RPM Fest is the party of the summer- camp in the woods with us and see only about a million amazing bands. We have a bunch more dates on the way, including Local Legends Festival on Sept 9! See our complete tour schedule on our tour page.

See you soon Boston, aka Rubber Tracks and Kurt Ballou

Well, cat’s out of the bag. We are beyond honored to have been selected for Converse Rubber Tracks to record with Kurt Ballou (!!!). Thank you MetalSucks.net! Here’s what Vince Neilstein had to say:

Dead Empires are an instrumental trio, but they’re not the kind of instrumental band that 1) djents, thank goodness, 2) wanks around on their instruments, 3) gets too caught up in what they’re doing to forget to write good songs. DE’s instru-metal is dramatic, cinematic and grandiose, but it’s also gnarly and full of grit and character, eminently headbangable through and through. It’s the kind of music Mastodon (early Mastodon, natch) might’ve made if they’d decided to go the vocal-less route, which is to say that it’s big and burly and full of grade-A riffs; your papa’s prog this is not. Imagine them on a tour with Lazer/Wulf and you’re getting close.

Make sure to follow both ours as well as the Rubber Tracks social media accounts for updates and photos.
