Hard rock with passion. Four guys, one sound, no excuses.
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.
Our second release, Three Winters Vol. I is currently available at www.dividetheempire.com, iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, and anywhere else you download or stream. ( While you are there check out our debut release The Illusion Of Control.)
