Today’s song is “Cross My Heart” by Awaken The Empire. The LA-based alternative-electronica band, Awaken the Empire. The band was #1 on PureVolume for a full week after giving away their two newest singles for free. The band’s new video for “Rise and Fall” premiered on MTV’s Buzzworthy and was featured on streams on AMP Magazine and Alt Press. We thought this band has an enticing sound that has been described as “30 Seconds To Mars knack for atmospheric rock and a little bit of the theatrics of My Chemical Romance thrown in.” This and their single “Rise and Fall” were produced by the legendary Erik Ron (Panic at the Disco, Versa Emerge, Get Scared).
