Crown The Empire

Crown The Empire spent a decade walking the tightrope between hard rock, screamo, and breakdown-driven metal, swinging wildly between styles across metalcore classic The Fallout and radio-banger Sudden Sky. On album number five, their first full-length in nearly as many years, the quartet split the difference with spectacular splendor. DOGMA is as decisively heavy as “Makeshift Chemistry” and as catchy as “BLURRY(out of place),” shimmering with melody and groove.Each passionate component that drove The Fallout (2012), The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways (2014), Retrograde (2016), and Sudden Sky (2019) to nearly 700 million collective streams is delivered on DOGMA, streamlined and stunning. It’s a sound that saw Crown The Empire on magazine covers early in their career, a spirit that built an audience on tours with Slipknot, Falling In Reverse, Dance Gavin Dance, The Used, Pierce The Veil, Underoath, Asking Alexandria, One OK Rock, and more. Now, the young kings of the later-era Warped Tour enter a fresh chapter.Collectively, the band took steps to learn more about themselves when touring ground to a halt during the worldwide shutdown of 2020 and 2021. A newfound sense of self is reflected particularly in Leo’s prose. “More theatrical or colorful lyrics could sometimes make things convoluted,” he says. “The pandemic caused a lot of introspection and a shift in priorities as individuals and as a group. The lyrics are less wordy and lofty. It’smore honest and direct.”“Dancing with the Dead” originated during Leo’s lowest point in quarantine. Reflecting on Lucifer’s famous line in John Milton’s Paradise Lost – “better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven” – the singer briefly surrendered to the endless loop of lockdown. Fittingly, it’s the first Crown The Empire song without any “clean” vocals whatsoever, pairing Leo and Tree’s anguished screams together.At the heart of CTE is a meaningful exploration of emotion and authentic connection with crowds, one culled from the deepest reaches of the band members life experiences and passions. What began with YouTube clips posted by high-school friends in Dallas grew to 130M views on the platform and multiple Billboard chart triumphs, including a Number 1 debut on the Rock Charts.A celebrated headliner in clubs and theaters around the globe, Crown The Empire emphasizes showmanship and connective presence, always fusing its energy with the audience. The band takes as many imaginative cues from cinematic storytelling as they’ve drawn from Linkin Park, Slipknot, and My Chemical Romance, injecting ambitious genre cross-pollination into their work.DOGMA bravely explores themes of interdependence and reliance on one another, skills developed over the decade-plus of being in a group together since their teens. It’s a full-circle moment stretching back to the beginning of the band and the hiddenmeaning behind their logo.“We’ve never really explained it to our fans, but the symbol we designed represents unity amongst everyone,” Tree reveals. “The cog represents the wheels that keep turning in the world. The idea is that anyone, from any walk of life, can do anything they set their mind to do. It’s the reason we called the very first EP Limitless. We had a dream of this band and collectively fought to make it a reality. The crown means that anyone can conquer, and everyone is welcome. We’re a family.”Ages 18+


Through their relentless hard work, non-stop touring and critically acclaimed /chart-breaking releases gaining over 250M streams/views across all platforms globally – JINJER are truly one of modern metal’s hottest and most exciting bands around today. The band has become synonymous with doing things their own way and breaking every rule in the Heavy Metal handbook- which they made loudly clear on their hugely successful fourth studio album: WALLFLOWERS.In less than12 years, the four-piece Progressive Groove metal wrecking machine known as JINJER have carved their very own place in the Metal landscape. Hailing from Donetsk but now based in Kiev, this Ukrainian musical oddity formed in 2009 but consider the official start of the band with the addition of the incredible vocalist and Femme Fatale Tatiana Shmayluk in 2010. The band labored intensively and honed their sound in practice rooms and local stages relentlessly, culminating in their now cult debut album release INHALE, DO NOT BREATHE in 2012 and winning Best Ukrainian Metal Band in 2013. They would be awarded this prize again a few years later.While most bands from a country not exactly known for it’s Heavy Metal exports would be content to enjoy the recognition gained in those first few years, it was clear that JINJER craved more and were willing to go the distance to make this happen. It was this attitude and clear vision that saw the band quickly write and release their second album CLOUD FACTORY in 2014, and venture intothe international touring market for the first time, booking their own shows and building their reputation face to face, fan to fan and more importantly under their own terms.It was this intensity that caught the attention of Napalm Records, who quickly signed JINJER, leading to the release of their critically acclaimed third album KING OF EVERYTHING in 2016, as well as the game changing single video for PISCES, which gained the band new fans, millions of views/streams and countless reaction videos on Youtube. KING OF EVERYTHING showcased the musical prowess and growth of the entire band while opening the floodgates to a bigger International touring circuit which JINJER gladly took advantage of. By the end of nearly two years of non-stop touring in Europe, JINJER added new territories such as Israel, Philippines, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, America, Canada and most of Latin America, while sharing the stages and touring with the likes of Arch Enemy, Cradle Of Filth and DevilDriver.Somewhere between touring vans, visa applications, and flights to new tour destinations, JINJER buried themselves in the rehearsal room to compose 5 brand new tracks for what would become the MICRO EP, written not only for the fans but for themselves, as they needed something new to keep their sanity on the road. Released in January 2019 and coinciding with their European Tour start together with Soilwork and Amorphis, the MICRO EP spawned the instant fan favorites APE and PERENNIAL, climbing to the top of many industry charts and radio station lists worldwide andonce again showcased the musical growth and songwriting talent of the band, as well as Tatiana’s amazing vocal range.

Chelsea Grin/Carnifex

18+ Chelsea Grin is an American deathcore band from Salt Lake City, Utah. Formed in 2007, the group have released two EPs and five full-length albums. Since 2018, no original members remain in the band. Chelsea Grin was originally founded under the name Ahaziah. The lineup for Ahaziah included vocalist Alex Koehler, guitarist Chris Kilbourn, bassist Austin Marticorena and lead guitarist Michael Stafford. Marticorena introduced Andrew Carlston to Chelsea Grin and assisted in rewriting their songs as well as the creation of new material as they changed the name to Chelsea Grin soon after. This writing process led to the tracks on their first release, a self-titled EP that was streamed and released online through iTunes, then released on CD worldwide on July 27, 2008. Early on in the band’s career, they released the songs “Crewcabanger” and “Lifeless” as singles, both of which were received well by listening audiences on Myspace. The band later sought to add a third guitarist position which led to the acquisition of Dan Jones and David Flinn which followed into the writing of their full-length album Desolation of Eden (2010), following up this record was My Damnation (2011) before cutting into a 2012 EP titled Evolve. In 2013, Pablo Viveros replaced founding drummer Andrew Carlston and started contributing vocals to their music, allowing lead vocalist Koehler to focus solely on the screamed vocals while Viveros took on the mid to low-ranged growls. Since then, the band released two more full-lengths, Ashes to Ashes in 2014 and Self Inflicted in 2016. As of 2018, the band ended their longtime tenure of featuring three guitarists to now only featuring one. That same year, vocalist Koehler departed from the band and was replaced with Lorna Shore vocalist Tom Barber. With this new four-piece lineup, Chelsea Grin officially released their fifth album Eternal Nightmare on July 13, 2018.
