Rocking a Cause Empire Theory is a pop/rock band from Orlando, Florida. Their luscious lines and infectious beats hold a stronger purpose than to solely make you dance. Their seamless blend of thoughtprovoking lyrics and musical chimes aim to construct a path allowing music to precipitate social change, bringing attention to the issues that confront us as a society. The quintet formed in 2011, after Sebastian and Jeremy left their previous musical projects in search of a change in focus. Drawing inspiration from MUTEMATH, U2 and Muse, Empire Theory recently self-released their debut EP ‘Colors.’ ‘Colors’ picks apart the themes of love, diversity, and the challenges of pushing beyond the boundaries of yourself. ‘Colors’ was co-produced by Roy Mitchell-Cardenas (Mute Math), mixed by Scott McKay Gibson at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA, and Mastered by Roger Seibel (Bon Iver, Death Cab for Cutie) at SAE Mastering in Phoenix, AZ. The band was selected by a panel of industry experts and members of the Recording Academy to take part in this year’s Florida Grammy Showcase. The showcase annually highlights the best rising talent in Florida. They were also semi-finalists in this year’s Hard Rock Rising competition. Empire Theory’s music is in radio rotation in several markets and has been used in multiple television commercials. The band will be entering the studio this Winter to work on their follow-up EP and plan to extensively tour in 2014. Empire Theory challenges you to make a difference in your world. Are you ready to become a #theorychanger?
