Alt-Electronica group Awaken the Empire have just revealed their much anticipated video for the song “The Awakening.” Fans can watch the video now, here: http://youtu.be/VdCZBno7ZbQ. The video was directed by Chad Michael Ward: Combi-Christ, Aiden.
In early 2011, the band self funded/produced their debut release The Awakening EP via iTunes, accompanied by the self-produced video for the single “Know Your Place.” Shortly after, the band signed with indie label Burn The Records! The band is currently in the studio recording with producer Erik Ron (Panic at the Disco, Versa Emerge, Get Scared).
Awaken the Empire consists of Damien Lawson (Vocals, Guitar, Programming), Jaymz Marcc (Bass), Daryl Falconer (Drums), and Shivan (Guitar). Their sound is best described as a post-apocalyptic soundtrack to the future…but Awaken the Empire is much more than a band, it is a movement for the people. A call to action to wake up..to break free of society’s expectations, and to not be afraid of risking it all for the chance to control ones own destiny.
