Security has never been the number 1 issue for an independent band when they gear up to tour. Unfortunately, I have seen many cases reported by bands who are currently on tour.

To make things worse, it is hard for local police to find a motive, or even investigate the events, because bands are usually trying to leave for their next gig.

Indie band, I Am Empire, have been the latest victims of theft when their van was vandalized and personal possessions were taken as they were eating lunch.

“We were literally eating lunch inside a little sandwhich place 20 yards from our van and trailor, said Eric Martin who is the drummer for I Am Empire. “From the inside of the restaurant, you couldn’t see the van.”

CD Review: I Am Empire – Self-Titled Album

iaealbumThe San Jose, Calif. based quintent has opened eyes and ears with their latest self-titled release. Already making noise with their first single, “You’re A Fake”, the band has hit the radio airwaves and have been touring in support of the album.

The album is filled with sing-along tracks that will have fans screaming lyrics during live shows.  

I Am Empire’s intro track, “Encompass”, sets the stage with an in your face guitar riff and trascends into an all-around rock track that will keep the lyric, “We are the lost and found…” in your head for days.

As mentioned, “You’re A Fake”,  blazes out of the speakers with lead guitar picking accompanied by a solid riff, which leads into the lyric, “Get up, Get up!!”. This song has just began to break out the band, and has lasting power.
