„EMPIRE ME“, das bedeutet „MELODIC PUNKROCK“ Marke Osnabrück.

Founded in 2013, Volker, Matze, Pascal and Christoph set out to revive the music style punk rock as a genre and as a thought, in and beyond the region.

After more and more intensive rehearsals and first passionate concerts, "EMPIRE ME" meanwhile set themselves the goal to establish themselves in the punk rock scene and to play as many live gigs as possible. A certain political component can't be denied to "EMPIRE ME" when it comes to fighting homophobia, racism of any kind and social justice. This is reflected among other things in their socially critical lyrics. Musically, "EMPIRE ME" combine rough punk rock character with melodic guitars and vocal lines. In their live shows the band convinces with joy of playing, passion for music, humor and authenticity.

In 2015 their first EP with 5 songs was released. The second EP "Where Are We Going Anyway" was released in winter 2017, followed by the release of their first full lengh album "I'm Out" on 24.02.2023!

Since then they have gained live experience at concerts with Rogers, Real McKenzies, Antillectual, Timeshares, Astpai, Red City Radio, Templeton Pek, Such Gold and many more.
