A band whose raw emotive power steers far beyond the norm, Crush of Empires is a force to be reckoned with. Marked by their dynamic live performances, hard driving riffs, unique song structures and lyrical sophistication, this four-piece band stands as an anomaly amongst the NYC rock scene.
A foursome of seemingly limitless potential, Crush of Empires evokes a kaleidoscopic visage ranging from of dirty hard rock to melodic grunge, from the ethereal psychedelic to the intimate and inviting. Crush performs regularly at NYC’s most legendary and prestigious venues including The Bowery Ballroom, Gramercy Theater, The Highline Ballroom, Irving Plaza, and Webster Hall. Their music has been heard on terrestrial radio throughout the world from both their breakout self-titled EP as well as their recent release, “Hard to Breathe”, featuring the band’s current line up.
