EYE EMPIRE Announces Extensive Fall Touring Plans with NONPOINT, SEETHER, and More

New Album ‘Impact’ – In Stores Now!




American hard rockers EYE EMPIRE recently joined up with Nonpoint on a tour of several Eastern states that will travel through the end of August. The band will then continue on with a headline tour of several Southern states across the U.S., ultimately linking up with Seether from October 5th through the latter part of the month. See below for all current tour dates.

Corey Lowery (Dark New Day, Stereomud, Stuck Mojo) and B.C. Kochmit (Dark New Day, Switched) formed EYE EMPIRE in 2007 with a rotating line-up of drummers—a spot now permanently filled by Ryan Bennett, formerly of Texas Hippie Coalition. In 2009, Donald Carpenter (formerly of Submersed) joined the band as the vocalist. Their latest release, a double album entitled Impact, was released in June 2012 and contains several tracks from the band’s self-released 2011 album, Moment of Impact, plus unreleased, acoustic, and live versions of songs. Several songs on Impact were recorded with Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose, and the track ‘Victim (Of The System)’ features guest vocals from Lajon Witherspoon, also of Sevendust.

EYE EMPIRE
has posted a video for the track ‘I Pray’ on their official YouTube page consisting of band-filmed footage, as well as an official album trailer. Head to this location to get a good taste of the band’s sound and subscribe to the page to receive EETV video updates and more!
