Young Empires

avatar for Young Empires

Young Empires play Haute Rock/World Beat. Since their inception two years ago, this Toronto 3-piece have played over 100 shows around the world, supporting acts like Chromeo, Foster the People, Jamiroquai, and Bag Raiders. They've garnered international acclaim for fearlessly crossing genres while sticking to their pop-song roots. NME magazine describes Young Empires' sound as "...the mathmania of Battles, the gloss'n'grandeur of The Killers, and the calamitous quiver of Arcade Fire... Young Empires have consummately summated this generation's achievements in Rock". All of this has come without an official release; the band has only released 4 home demos via their MySpace- one of which was picked up by Parisian Music/Fashion label, Kitsune, for their Maison 10 collection. Young Empires' debut record WAKE ALL MY YOUTH is set for release February 21st on Pirates Blend Records (CAN)/HOYE Recordings (WORLD).
