Trekking on the The Fallout 10 Year Anniversary US Tour, CtE has partnered with Knotfest.com and Fly Machine to livestream the July 1 show from White Oak Music Hall.

Veteran metalcore outfit Crown The Empire has been trekking the country marking the 10th anniversary of their seminal debut, The Fallout.

The full length introduction dropped in November 2012 on Rise Records and instantly propelled the band into the conversation of the genre’s emerging stars. The album hit number one on the Heatseekers chart and began their dominant run – vaulting them to one of the genre’s most bankable names.

Revisiting the album live for the tour has prompted the band to also give the release a studio refresher – this time in the form of a reimagined favorite from the album. Enlisting Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills, Dave Stephens of We Came As Romans and Craig Owens of D.R.U.G.S., Crown the Empire has dropped a retooling of the cut “Johnny’s Revenge”, further reiterating the enduring quality of the album now a decade deep.

The band explained how the roster of collaborators have been formative to Crown the Empire, “W​e are excited to announce that we’ve recreated our song “Johnny’s Revenge” with guest features from 3 different bands: Spencer Charnas from Ice Nine Kills, Dave Stephens from We Came As Romans and Craig Owens from D.R.U.G.S. All of these singers are a part of the era we grew up in and have played a huge role in helping our scene become what it is today.”

The band also added how the reimagined track has evolved during the last decade. “To celebrate 10 years of our album ‘The Fallout,’ we wanted to do something special for the people who’ve stuck with us over the past decade. One of the songs our fans always gravitated towards was “Johnny’s Revenge,” a theatrical piece that’s part of a trilogy we created over the span of 3 albums. We can’t wait for everyone to hear this new version!”

As The Fallout 10th Anniversary Tour draws to a close at the beginning of next month, the band have announced a partnership with Knotfest.com and Fly Machine for a special streaming event set for July 1st. Crown the Empire will stream their performance in its entirety from Houston’s White Oak Music Hall – so fans that can’t make the anniversary tour can still experience the show. Tickets for the livestreaming broadcast can be purchased – HERE

Crown the Empire was also recently confirmed along with horrorcore specialists Ice Nine Kills as touring support for the third and final leg North American leg of the 2022 Knotfest Roadshow. The late September, early October run will see the band kicking off the festivities across the southwest, opening for tour de force that is Slipknot. Tickets for Knotfest Roadshow can be purchased – HERE.
