Lead singer of Awaken the Empire, Damien Lawson, will be interviewed LIVE on Fearless Radio Today, March 6th, at 1pm EST. This LA-based alternative-electronica band recently premiered their newest single "Cross My Heart" exclusively on AltPress.com here: http://bit.ly/AltPressAwakenTheEmpire.
This new single is a follow-up to Awaken the Empire's widely respected, self-produced EP, "The Awakening". The band was honored to team up with famed producer, Erik Ron (Panic at the Disco, Versa Emerge, Get Scared) to create their newest release.
Awaken the Empire consists of Damien Lawson (Vocals/Guitar/Programming), Jaymz Marcc (Bass), Daryl Falconer (Drums), and Shivan Somaratne (Guitar). Possessing a sound that lies somewhere between that of a movie score and an alternative-electronica band, Awaken the Empire brings a new perspective along with their new sound. Lead singer, Damien Lawson, explains, "The general theme behind our band is that of an underground movement to encourage people to follow their dreams at all costs." Lawson elaborates on the movie score vibe of the band's sound saying "If we were a movie it would be somewhere between Donnie Darko (dark, romantic, schizophrenic, sarcastic, funny, complex) and Inception (mysterious, powerful, hidden agenda, purposely confusing)."
In early 2011, the band released the self-funded, self-produced EP "The Awakening" via iTunes accompanied by the self-produced video to the single "Know Your Place." In November 2011, the band released the video for "The Awakening" on AOL Music which was directed by the great Chad Michael Ward (Aiden, Combi-Christ). The video has already received over 170,000 views on Youtube.
For fans of The Used, 30 Seconds to Mars, and My Chemical Romance, Awaken the Empire's sound, raw talent, and drive is all you need.
