Instant Empire has a unique style of aggressive indie rock that has been compared to The Hold Steady, The National, Bright Eyes, Manchester Orchestra, Desaparecidos, Death Cab and Cursive. In the past three years, the group has produced three records and toured the Midwest a number of times in its highly questionable van, Ishneeda.
Known for their raw and energetic live show, this is a band unafraid of playing with unabashed emotion. This is a group of guys that have perfected the art of losing money and that has spent countless hours searching for the perfect well-whiskey. Ultimately Instant Empire is a band that acts juvenile a good portion of the time, but happens to write serious songs about the search for meaning through the endless cacophony of modern day life.
