About Crown the Empire
Crown the Empire is the name of an American metalcore band formed in 2010. Describing themselves as an act combining electronica, post-hardcore and electronicore, several least-known rock genres, they have called their genre arena rock hardcore, playing a music that contains “heavy breakdowns, poppy verses and huge concert-ready choruses.” Getting formed in July 2010 by Andrew Velasquez, Hayden Tree, Brandon Hoover and Austin Duncan while they were attending high-school, drummer Alex Massey joined the band, but got replaced in 2011 by Brent Taddie, who remained in the band until today. Another addition to the band was Benn Suede as a new lead guitarist.
We hope that you can enjoy the not-so-common music that these guys present and with that the piano sheets that we can feature for their songs.
Their debut EP, called “Limitless”, was released on iTunes on November 29, 2011. During the end of the year, they got really active on YouTube, uploading music videos or covers and that is said to be where they got so many fans.
The year 2012 started with them signing with Rise Records and on August they announced the addition of David Escamilla as the second vocalist. In November they were already releasing the second song from their debut album called “Memories of a Broken Heart” and soon the album itself was released as a whole.
The album “The Fallout” was released on November 19, 2012, ranking 7 on the US Hard Rock charts. Starting 2013 with announcing tours, they released a live version for the song “Menace” in June and in August released the last single from their debut album.
The piano sheets that Crown the Empire can provide us with are pretty hard to transition, but there are some songs worth it and we hope you can appreciate the work put into them.
In November 2013 they announced re-recording their EP, “Limitless”. It was about that time that they also announced working on a new album, in January 2014 announcing their next tours, playing Warped again and the Slam Dunk Festival in the UK.
The band actually won Alternative Press Magazine’s award for best breakthrough band, with their second album reaching number one on the iTunes Rock Charts.
The second album was called “The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways”, reaching number four on the iTunes album charts overall.
Crown the Empire is a metalcore band and, even if their music is not that harmonious and melodic, some songs can still transition well to piano and can be interesting to try out. Enjoy all kinds of rock music, all kinds of music in general and stay close to PianoForge, we have it all here!
