As we continue with our coverage of last night’s Monster Energy Outbreak Tour stop in Sacramento, I hope you checked out our articles on  Sworn In and Like Moths to Flames. Next up for the night was one of our favorite bands, Crown The Empire. This was the fourth time seeing them this year and they once again delivered a spot on set. They have had quite a busy year with non stop touring and the great success of their latest album release, The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways. It appears with the energy they bring to the stage, there is no slowing down in sight for these guys. They are dedicated to always delivering 150% to each and every show.

They definitely had a strong fan presence in the crowd as you could tell by everyone singing along to each song. They played crowd favorites like Rise of the Runaways, Machines, Bloodline and even finished it off with an amazing performance of The Fallout. They completely rocked the venue and you couldn’t help but be in awe of their cinematic spectacular set. If you walked through those doors not knowing who Crown The Empire was, you left that night with them being your new favorite band. You couldn’t escape the intensity that this band delivered as they had the blood rushing through your veins and left you feeling absolutely alive! This is one band that has successfully breathed the life back into Rock n Roll and added a strong dose of hardcore to insure the right blend that will stand the test of time. Their sound appeals to a wide audience and that is no wonder that their fanbase exponentially grows with each show.

Check out the photos by our Rockin Ryan of their set:

Concert review – Asking Alexandria w. Secrets, Crown The Empire and The Ghost Inside, Contributed by Alexandra

Munich, Tonhalle, October 17th, 2014

Shortly before doors opened at 6pm there was already a long queue around the corner that soon started moving. The show was sold out, so some people were on the lookout for tickets without any luck though it seems.

The first band, Secrets, entered the stage at exactly 7pm. It was their second time in Germany. They opened up and seemed to have an immediate impact on the audience. They later sold many CD’s in the merch booth which speaks for itself.

Second on were Crown The Empire. It was their first time in Germany and I’m pretty confident not their last. Their set started with the opening tunes of their latest album ‚The resistance‘. They played mostly songs from that album, like Machines, Bloodline and Initiation. For the song ‚Rise of the Runaways‘ Brian Escamilla, second man on vocals, also picked up a guitar. With three guitars on stage the sound was massive. As Andrew Velasquez told the audience it was their best gig so far on this tour, which makes us all hope for a comeback anytime soon. Their IG post after the show read ‚All we have to say is WOW…thank you for being so amazing tonight Munich, Germany! The rest of Europe has some competition‘.

Third act on the set-list was The Ghost Inside. Considering the cheers and the loud sing-alongs they were known to a large number of people in the audience. It was only their second time here, but they already had a steady fan-base. Everybody was properly warmed up for whom everyone was waiting for.

Between the sets, to shorten the wait, they played some Aerosmith, Guano Apes and Beasty Boys. When Europe‘s Final Countdown started playing the crowd started to chant along really loud. Many were surprised by that, but after a while they tuned the song up a few notches and the everyone kept singing along until the final tunes faded.

The stage was set for Asking Alexandria. Soon as the intro to ‚Don’t pray for me‘ sounded from the PA the crowd started cheering. Last on stage was Danny Worsnop, their singer. He had a German flag tied to his mic-stand which he carried around most of the show. The focus of the set-list sure was on their recent album ‚From death to destiny‘, which is also the name of this tour, but they played some songs of their former CD’s too, like ‚To the stage‘, ‚Someone, somewhere‘, ‚A prophecy‘ and ‚Not the American average‘. At about half time of the show, they left the stage for antoher intro-like track, which is more a spoken piece, called ‚Dedication‘. All songs were well received by the crowd. They couldn’t have chosen better ones. Whilst the show Dany thanked the crowd for buying their records, cuz like he said, their fans seem to still buy physical copies instead of downloading songs from the internet, which gets pretty rare. Like Andrew he said that it was one of the best shows so far, which he also stated on his IG/Twitter ‚Absolutely in love with the show tonight here in Munich. Every second was just pure gold. Love y’all…‘. After about 60 minutes they closed the set with The Final Episode. When first protests started to be heard, Danny said they’d be back. The audience thankfully didn’t have to wait too long for that. They played three encores Killing You, The Death Of Me and Poison.

All three opening acts were at the merch booth afterwards to take pictures, sign stuff, sell their merch and chat with the people.

My résumé: A fun evening for audience and bands…one more song please!!

Their debut album “The Fallout” on Rise Records could quite well be called a concept album. It is a great work of art and through their musical compositions tell the story of a post-apocalyptic world. The basis of the album came from a failed relationship and they creatively turned it into a musical gem. You can pick up the album on Itunes here and make sure to listen to it from start to finish, it is awesome and takes you on a wild cinematic ride.

I will leave you with a couple videos from their set in Chico. Make sure to visit their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news.

Last week, we covered the Asking Alexandria show at The Senator Theater in Chico, CA. This was the only California stop on the Break Down The Walls Tour and there was no way we were going to miss it. What was awesome is that the tour included a great group of bands. One of the opening bands was Crown The Empire and they delivered a heavy rock set worthy of our attention.

The band came out and immediately captured the attention of the crowd. They are full of energy as they bounced across the stage unleashing their music and enthralled the listeners. What is awesome about Crown The Empire is that their sound is a mix of hard/heavy rock to post-hardcore, interweaving melodies to scream vocals, but never overdoing it either way. They have finely balanced their musical fusions in order to create a unique and quite infectious sound. They were definitely one of my favorites of the new night.
