This event has been and gone.
There was a time when rock radio was dominated by great riffs. From Deep Purple's "Smoke On the Water" and Derek And The Dominoes' "Layla" to Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" and Rage Against The Machine's "Killing In The Name Of" it was all about that unmistakable guitar sound that instantly identified a band or song. The four members of Crobot - Brandon Yeagley (lead vocals), Chris Bishop (guitar), Jake Figueroa (bass) and Paul Figueroa (drums) - have united to bring that back. Blending funk, blues, metal and good old-fashioned rock and roll into a howling vortex of Yeagley's vocals, Bishop's guitar and the Figueroa's backbone, Crobot's good time rock hooks sound as inspired today as they would have on AOR radio in 1974.

Planet Rock – “Everything about Empyre’s beguiling music is colossal sounding” Kerrang! - “Empyre … sound slick, vast and like the music was written with the help of an architectural blue print for an arena” BBC Introducing - “No stage is too big for these guys” and “Thunderous rock with one of the meatiest sounds in the UK right now” Rock Today – “Debut album Self Aware – groundbreaking!…it’s a game changer” Empyre perform intense, atmospheric rock, with a dark and introspective edge to their writing. In the words of BBC Introducing their music ranges from “Triumphant, chest beating rock” to more subtle but just as arresting numbers inviting you to do the deepest of soul searching. This is a gritty, lyrically engaging and profound style of rock music you have not heard before. 2018 saw Empyre play HRH Ibiza, and perform sessions for BBC Introducing and the world renowned ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris’ ‘Under The Apple Tree’ sessions, a privilege normally exclusively reserved for country acts. 2019 has seen the release of their debut album ‘Self Aware’, gaining attention from Classic Rock Magazine, Kerrang!, and Planet Rock; heralding them as ‘Ones to Watch’, playlisting their music, announcing them for Winters End 2020 and premiering the video for the song ‘Stone’.
