June was an incredible month; Baltimore a wonderful city. I'm writing to you from a comfortable chair in San Jose, California listening to some exciting mixes of our new record.
Our producer, Brian McTernan, has pushed us far beyond our own comfort zone and taught us the art of confidence. Regardless of what you expect to hear, you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. I've honestly had to sit back and try to understand this record myself! The mystery of happiness, the pursuit of love. Am I nothing but a blackout? drawing questions of revival and the things we should do to feel new again?
I don't have a clue…but the labor that inspired this record, and the labor that was required to make this record has drawn a smile upon my heavy heart. I'm excited and nervous, but confident about releasing these songs to all of you wonderful people. We hope to rebuild your love for our band and restore the rock in your roll. If you've met me, you know I'm a man of few words, but I sincerely look forward to seeing you all on tour soon.
Since we last heard from alternative rockers I Am Empire with 2011’s highly heralded Tooth & Nail debut Kings, the San Jose-based band logged endless miles of sweat equity on the road, supporting the likes of Emery, Brian “Head” Welch and Project 86, alongside its own headlining outing, plus a pair of performances at Germany’s enormous Christmas Rock Night festival. The results have not only found the foursome cementing their already apparent chemistry to indestructible degrees, but has also renewed their zeal for constant creativity that manifested itself throughout its second long player Anchors.
