Formed in 2008 from the cesspool of Philadelphia, Generation Empty stands a singular force, demanding a revolution in a jaded world that has been intellectually deteriorated by chemical lobotomies and social apathy. Formed as an industrial rock hybrid, Generation Empty experiments with shots of sleazy blues riffs, hits of brutal metal beats, and overdoses of assorted electronic influences.
Leading this band of the lost, broken, and crazed is Tox, the mind behind the music...Devilishly sinister, dirty, and vicious in his lyrics, taking the listener on a dark and personal journey through madness and back. Likened in performance to JImmy Urine, Darby Crash & Marilyn Manson, you can't help but be transfixed. Their live show leaves little to be desired, glorifying sex, drugs, and self destruction with a heavy-hitting musical performance to match. Generation Empty brings a level of dedication to their music that is clearly reflected in the technical aesthetic of their sound, allowing a wide appeal that spans multiple genres and defies catagorization.
With the independent release of their first EP 'Incubated', Generation Empty rocketed to the forefront of the Philadelphia industrial scene, soon sharing the stage with bands like Combichrist, Wednesday 13, BlackLightBurns and The Birthday Massacre. In 2011, they caught the attention of producer Xris Smack of MindSwerve Studios and began to focus on writing and recording their new EP which is set to release in 2014.
The upcoming release 'Synthetic Smiles' offers more than standard industrial rock. While the influences are clearly identified, they manage to retain an individual sound while still paying homage to their 90's industrial metal roots. No genre is safe from their prying hands, as they violate hip-hop, drum & bass, dupstep, metal, and rock.
