I Am Empire


I Am Empire formed in the summer of 2008 when members, Austin Lyons
(vocals), Andrew Stanton (lead guitar), Dan Otis (Guitar), Joshua Case
(bass/vocals) and Eric Martin (drums), began work on recording their
full length self titled album.

The album is a ten song journey that shows the bands diversity and
understading of songwriting. The first single “You’re A Fake” is a
hard hitting rock song that has made a huge radio impact since its
release in April of 2009. Featuring Andrew Stanton’s hard hitting tone
and smooth soloing capabilities the song has hit #6 on the CRW charts
and #15 on the Billboard Christian rock charts. The song has also been
featured on Live105’s Soundcheck, hit #1 on Radio U’s “Most Wanted
List”, and posted in the top 10 on Effect Radios Top 44, has been the
#1 most requested song on the Spin180 in Texas, along with being in
regular rotation at radio stations nationally. Aaron Axelson of
Live105 featured I Am Empire in his “Top Ten Bay Area Bands”.

Since the release of their album, I Am Empire has shown their drive
and resiliance in the music industry booking their own tours and
making a name for themselves without any label support. Along with
full time touring the band has been featured in the June/Blink-182
issue of Alternative Press Magazine as one of the “Unsigned Bands Of
The Month” and won the Ernie Ball competition that landed them an
opening postition on The Rockstar Taste Of Chaos stop in their
hometown. Articles on the band can also be found in Substream Magazine
and The Metro (Bay Area).

I Am Empire’s musical talents have not gone unnoticed by the “higher
ups” either. With endorsements by Fender, Wedgie, Viper Drums,
Soultone Cymbals and will soon be heard on select MTV, E!, and Oxygen
television shows. The band also just inked a publishing deal with
Evergreen Copyrights and has also been featured on the frontpage of
Myspace Music. Their video for Your’e A Fake” will debut September
25th on myspace musics hompage along with Fender’s website.
