Seattle, WA...August 10, 2010...Knowing a good thing when they hear it, Tooth & Nail Records has recently signed the San Jose, California based band, I Am Empire. Already establishing their fan-base by opening for bands like Flyleaf, Sublime, Silversun Pickups and touring with The Wedding, I Am Empire self-released their debut album as well as their charted singles “You’re A Fake” and “The Elevator.”
"Tooth & Nail Records is a strong iconic label that gives us the vehicle and freedom to be the kind of band we aspire to be,” shares I Am Empire about signing to the label.
I Am Empire formed in the summer of 2008 with members Austin Lyons (vocals), Andrew Stanton (lead guitar), Dan Otis (Guitar), Joshua Case (bass/vocals) and Eric Martin (drums). The band has recently finished tracking their Tooth & Nail debut in Nashville, TN with producer Rob Hawkins (Disciple, Fireflight). The debut release will be titled “Kings,” and includes 12 tracks as well as a co-write with Anberlin. More information on this release as well as a street date will be coming soon. I Am Empire’s sound is described by frontman Austin Lyons as a “mix of rock, alternative, and the DIY attitude.”
Media have also been attracted to I Am Empire as they were named by Alternative Press as one of the best-unsigned bands in America. They have also been featured on AOL’s Spinner, Substream Magazine as well as named “New Band To Watch” by LIVE105 radio station in San Fransisco.

About Tooth & Nail Records:
What began in a bedroom over a decade ago has grown organically to become the enthusiastic support system behind many of the most important rock bands operating, including Underoath, Emery, Hawk Nelson, Thousand Foot Krutch and The Almost. With headquarters in Seattle and offices in Nashville, Tennessee and elsewhere, Tooth & Nail Records is also the parent company to Solid State Records (Demon Hunter, Haste The Day) and BEC Recordings (Jeremy Camp, Kutless). Label founder Brandon Ebel became immersed in the network of musicians, clubs, fanzines and promoters who were making waves with bands whose positive messages (whether translated through melodic punk or heavy rock) and creative, inspired music. Driven to this unique perspective, the music press has caught on and embraced many T&N bands the kids already knew. With new signings like The Letter Black, Sent By Ravens and Write This Down injecting fresh life into the company, Tooth & Nail continues to be a vital, dominant presence in the contemporary music scene.
