Crown the Empire – Rebel Toronto – February 5, 2018

Crown the Empire is an American rock band formed in 2010 in Dallas, Texas. They have released one EP and three full-length albums.

Crown the Empire was formed in July 2010 by Andrew Velasquez, Austin Duncan, Hayden Tree, and Brandon Hoover during their time together at Colleyville Heritage High School. The band was formed when “Brandon and Austin decided to start jamming together.”[2] The band’s ultimate goal was to “be heavier than most bands in their area,” while “bringing huge, poppy choruses to a genre that can become pretty stale.” Originally, drummer Alex Massey filled the drumming position in the band, but he was soon replaced by their current drummer, Brent Taddie in May 2011. During 2011, the members of Crown the Empire also held an extensive search for another guitarist to join their band. One person to audition was Austin Post, now known as the rapper Post Malone, who had allegedly broke a string during the audition and was not hired on. They soon welcomed Bennett Vogelman (Benn Suede) to the band as the new lead guitarist.
