Formed in 2017, Broken Empire are a four piece Hard Rock/Metal band from Oxford. Inspired by a mutual love of bands such as Alter Bridge, 5FDP & Disturbed; the band recorded their self-titled Debut EP in Spring 2018 to a very good reception. This was shortly followed by the 2nd EP 'Fractures' which has so far amassed over 60,000 Spotify plays since it's release in April. Over 50 gigs later and having already torn up the stage with fellow Rock and Metal bands such as Ryder's Creed, From Inside and The Fallen State, the band were also Finalists of 2018's Bloodstocks Metal 2 The Masses Competition in Oxford.
Wasting no time at all, the band released their 3rd EP 'Parasite' in November 2019. The first single 'Time Is Running Out' and the EP itself, proved a big bit among fans and critics alike - Moshville Times said "Four quality tracks of hard rock" and Independent Music Showcase gave it a 10/10!
The latest release 'Locked Out of Heaven' is the bands metal reinvention of the hit Bruno Mars track.
