Empire Theory is an indie alt-rock / pop band from Orlando. Their luscious lines and infectious beats hold a stronger purpose than to solely make you dance. Their seamless blend of thought-provoking lyrics and musical chimes aim to construct a path allowing music to precipitate social change, bringing attention to the issues that confront us as a society. Drawing inspiration from Coldplay, MUTEMATH, U2, Phoenix, and at times the Beatles, Empire Theory released their debut EP ‘Colors’ in August of 2012. ‘Colors’ was co-produced by Roy Mitchell-Cardenas (MUTEMATH, Plastic Planets) and picks apart the themes of love, diversity, and the challenges of pushing beyond the boundaries of yourself. Empire Theory has charted in the top 20 on college radio across the country and has developed a loyal following in Orlando and throughout the Southeast. The band will be entering the studio in the Summer to work on their follow-up release and will continue to tour the Southeast extensively. They are currently working on a campaign to collect 25,000 pairs of shoes with Nashville-based not-for-profit organization Soles4Souls.
