2000 Trees 2014: Empire

Empire

Try writing a review of these guys without mentioning Fall Out Boy. Eesh.

I’m listening to these five gentlemen and wondering how they aren’t absolutely gargantuan, the way in which their songs are. Drawing heavily from influences presumably including FOB, Billy Talent and At The Drive In they’re musically meteoric with a boundless and frenetic energy but with a controlled and majestic vocal from frontman Joe Green who simply operates in another plane of existence from the rest of us.

I was so struck by the first time I heard them I went ahead and bought their 8-track mini album “Where The World Begins” and it is brilliant. If one of your favourite bands from the Fuelled By Ramen catalogue released this you’d say it was the best thing they’ve ever done.

We have the amazing opportunity this year to see them opening up the main stage on the Friday at 12.30pm which is unbelievable considering their potential. After this summer they’ll never be that early on any bill anywhere so take the opportunity this year before they gain anymore traction on the reputation they’re already fast gaining.

From selling out shows in London to Kerrang and Rock Sound saying unspeakably good things about them as well as a packed out summer, we’re catching them right before their wave hits. What a band they might well end up being.

Future, Past and Present
