This Canadian four-piece set the blogosphere in a spin after posting a set of home demos shortly after forming in early 2010. The e-attention created an international demand for YE’s high-energy live set, bringing the band to the UK, US, and South America for over 150 shows, including stops in London, Paris, New York, Stockholm and Miami supporting the likes of Foster The People, Chromeo, Bag Raiders, and Girl Talk.
Young Empires debut release WAKE ALL MY YOUTH (Feb 2012) earned them live appearances on MTV, George Stroumbolopoulos Tonight, Sirius XM, and Canada’s biggest rock station, 102.1 The Edge. The first single off WAMY, ‘White Doves’, is being spun on Rock radio across the country and has also been added in high rotation on Top40/Pop stations in Toronto and Vancouver.
Pairing fashion and music, Young Empires were included on Kitsune Maison Compilation 10 and recently have collaborated with Handsome Clothing on a custom tee and sweatshirt line.
Along with fashion, the band is also fascinated by technology and are set to release the world’s first Facebook integrated video for ‘White Doves’ on May 14th.
Young Empires have begun work on their next release with legendary producer
AL-P (Death From Above 1979, MSTRKRFT).
