We are Divide The Empire, a unique sounding hard rock band from the Greater St.Louis, MO area that was founded in 2012.
Our music is a reflection of the hard rock, punk, 90’s alternative, and blues that we grew up on. Bands like Bad Company, Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, SRV, Black Flag, Iggy and The Stooges, AC/DC, D.R.I., Alice In Chains, The Black Crowes, and Tool were the soundtrack to our lives and made us who we are as musicians.
Randy and Keith are from Belleville, Ill and have been writing/performing together at a feverish pace for 10+ years. Joe and Glenn grew up in O’Fallon, MO, have been jamming for the better part of 10 years, and raising hell together all their lives.
We are currently promoting our second release Three Winters Vol. I. available on iTunes, Amazon.com, CDbaby, Google Play and anywhere you download or stream.
Four guys, one sound, no excuses.
Randy Shanks – Vocals/Guitar
Glenn Hughes – Bass
Keith Thurnau – Drums
Joe Burrow – Guitar
