The tale of self-proclaimed Haute rockers Young Empires begins in the fall of 2009 with the help of Craigslist with the creative core now consisting of lead vocalist Matthew Vlahovich, bassist Jake Palahnuk, and drummer Taylor Hill. Within two weeks of forming, the band began rehearsing and booked their first gig shortly after. Between tours, Young Empires wrote, recorded & mixed their debut EP, Wake All My Youth, an album full of glittering, electro-tinged indie rock numbers.
