Bringing a heavy rock sound to the Midwest. We are four creative minds from different walks of life. Working class guys with a "No Excuses" original hard rock sound. We love writing and performing together. The goals are clear, we just wanna rock and live life to the fullest. You can't rewind this time so, spend it wisely. ROCK ON TO THOSE WHO FOLLOW US, and thanks to all the troops for everything they do.
We are Divide The Empire from the Greater St.Louis, MO area.
Our music is a reflection of the hard rock, punk, and 90's alternative that we grew up on.
Bands like Bad Company, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Black Flag, Iggy and The Stooges, AC/DC, D.R.I., Alice In Chains, and Tool were the soundtrack to our lives and made us who we are as musicians.
Randy and Keith are from Belleville, Ill and have been writing/performing together at a feverish pace for 10+ years. While Joe and Glenn are from Winfield, MO and have been jamming for the better part of 10 years and raising hell together all their lives.
We four came together like lightning striking and show no signs of slowing down or cooling off!
Our first CD is called The Illusion of Control. It is currently available on iTunes, amazon.com, cdbaby, and anywhere you download!
