The Glasgow band The Atlas : Empire is affected of caffeine, pedalboards and Mexican food! They play a music that is a mix of prog and art rock. Since forming in the summer of 2011, founding members have been the creative driving force of the band, providing vocals, guitars, keys, programming and songwriting. They have been joined by a slew of talented players over the years – with the current line-up being the strongest ever. To date, Atlas : Empire have released three Eps, but in December the debut full length The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet will be released.
The Stratosphere Beneath Our Feet is a concept album, based around humanity’s growing reliance on technology and specifically how society falls apart when that fails us. Atlas : Empire wrote each song like a chapter in a book, both musically and lyrically, to follow that narrative.
