Crown The Empire Quotes
"It all started as Brandon and Austin decided to start jamming together. We wanted to be heavier than
the bands from our area, but we still wanted to bring huge, poppy choruses to a genre that can become pretty stale."
"We write about the experiences that we go through; mainly the terrible ones. But we always take another
track to remind people there’s nothing that can truly stop you. We also just write stories that we think
have a cool plot or idea."
"[our style is] Arena Rock Hardcore. Heavy breakdowns, Poppy Verses, and Huge concert ready Choruses"
