Thanks brooklyn, you fucking rule. Thanks to and Saint Vitus Bar for having us!

If you were at Saint Vitus Bar last night, then you know that we are embarking on a new creative and sonic chapter starting this year. It starts with welcoming a new member into the fold, the incredibly talented Jason Sherman (Torrential Downpour) on vocals/synth/noise. He adds a new dimension to our tunes and we are really excited to share what we’ve been working on. You heard some new tunes last night, here’s a taste courtesy of

We have big plans for the spring, including some recording and a few more shows coming up.

5/13 – Lucky 13, Brooklyn NY w/ Tusko, King Dead, Machine Arms (RSVP)

Stream new song “Trve Believer” on now!


It’s here. This fall we were picked as part of the Converse Rubber Tracks sessions in Boston, MA, with producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire, Torche) where we laid down this new song “Trve Believer”.

“equal parts post-metal, prog, stoner, psychedelic and sludge. Most importantly, they blend all these seemingly disparate elements into a whole that doesn’t sound the slightest bit scattered; it totally works. So where does that leave us? I don’t even fucking know. How about just “good,” is that enough? The band’s performance on “True Believer…” is their best to date. They sound even tighter and more focused here than they did on their Secret Snakes, Silent Serpent album, which only came out this past January.”

We’re really proud of this one and are humbled by all the support we’ve been shown by and to work with the legendary Kurt Ballou on this one. Enough talk. Just listen.

Here’s what they had to say: “Dead Empires sound like what Cloudkicker could’ve been in an alternate universe in which Ben Sharp was influenced by doomy, stoney High on Fire riffs instead of atmospheric post rock and Meshuggah… with a few extra bong rips thrown in for good measure. The Hudson Valley, NY instrumental three-piece brings it hard on their latest offering Waiting in Waves, and this new, previously unreleased track offers a taste of what’s in store on their soon-to-be-released next effort.”
