Crown The Empire Launch Music Video For The Title Track Of Their Newly Announced Album “DOGMA”


Progressive metalcore group Crown The Empire will have their fifth studio album “DOGMA” out through Rise Records on April 28th. The band tracked that effort with Zach Jones (Fever 333, Nova Twins), who also took on the mixing duties.

Speaking of the record, vocalist Andy Leo offered: “The lyrics are less wordy and lofty. It’s more honest and direct.” Bassist/vocalist Hayden Tree added:

“We brought back the classic elements of Crown without taking anything away from what we’ve done more recently. The high-energy, fast-paced, hard-hitting riffs, with the band’s more melodic side, mashed together into an updated sound.”

Newly landing from the opus is the below video for the title track, which was directed by Vicente Cordero (Cradle Of Filth, Suicide Silence).
