Thanks brooklyn, you fucking rule. Thanks to MetalSucks.net 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 MetalSucks.net.

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

It’s here. This fall we were picked as part of the Metalsucks.net 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 MetalSucks.net and to work with the legendary Kurt Ballou on this one. Enough talk. Just listen.

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.
