One of the hardest working, heavy hitting bands to emerge in recent years, Eye Empire is a touring machine that spends more time on the road in a year than there are days.
With the mantra of Love, Respect, Support, they have developed a loyal following touring in support of their debut album “IMPACT”. Their new album “EVoLVE” is set to hit shelves later this year and is a testament to the evolution of this band.
The origin of Eye Empire began in 2007 when Corey Lowery (Stuck Mojo/Stereomud/Dark New Day) and B.C. Kochmit (Switched) started to construct what would eventually become the foundation of this empire.
After two years of writing and searching for the right voice, Donald Carpenter (Submersed) joined the group in October of 2009 followed by former Texas Hippie Coalition member Ryan Bennett on drums. The band’s debut album: Moment of Impact will be released in the coming months via Bad Puppy Records / Bulldog Productions.
Produced by Corey Lowery and Eye Empire, early pressings of the album have already sold thousands of copies on-line exclusively through mail order. An expanded track listing with three brand new songs make up the national release of Moment Of Impact.
The first single from the album, “I Pray” has already been heard on Sirius/XM’s “Octane” for the past few months; while the band has been staging one standing room only show after another. Eye Empire will immediately head back out on the road for dates beginning on September 4th in Madison, WI, and rolling in to a direct support run with Wayne Staticâ€™s Pighammer that commences on September 27th in Sacramento
This is their “Moment of Impactâ€ and itâ€™s just the beginning.
