I Am Empire Bio:

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 hard hitting tone and smooth melodies 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). They were also recently added to the Sound Management roster of artist that includes Smash Mouth, Flypside, The Limousines, and more.

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" debuted with over 10,000 plays on myspace music's hompage along with Fender's artist website.
