CROWN THE EMPIRE's relentless touring schedule has found them sharing stages with such acts as PIERCE THE VEIL, ASKING ALEXANDRIA and THE USED. After being the breakout band on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour, the band was asked to return again this year as a main-stage act.

CROWN THE EMPIRE has been on the cover of Alternative Press over three times in the past year, a feat that has never been accomplished by a new band. They appeared first as the cover artist for Alternative Press' "Bands You Need To Know" issue, then again for their "Stars of Warped Tour" issue, and the band was on the cover of the magazine's July 2014 issue to help build early support for the new album.
