OUR AMA (Ask me anything) at Reddits biggest Post-Rock Channel is STARTING ON WEDNESDAY AUG 16th at 7pm CET (10am PST / 1pm EST)!! You’ll get the chance to ASK US ANYTHING over at LINK. We’re very looking forward to all of your questions and the chat with you! See you there!
We have very good news! After almost 3 years, we finally are back with something new! We will release our 6th studio-record “THE FALLEN ONES” on October 20th. With this album we are starting a new chapter for COLLAPSE UNDER THE EMPIRE and hope to take all fans and listeners with us on this journey. For the last 6 months we worked intensely on this record and hope you like it as much as we do!
“THE FALLEN ONES” has once again become a concept album. Within the 9 tracks, the album takes you on a dystopian journey and creates a future scenario of a society that develops negatively – with plenty of room for interpretation. Sticking to our own sound, we combine moody synthesizer surfaces and guitar sounds to form an imaginary soundtrack, but we also have quite a few new perspectives to our compositions.
Further we work hard to be able to play some live concerts at the end of the year, so stay tuned for more!
We have exciting news! Since the beginning of the year we are working on our live performance. Presenting “Collapse” live on stage took us so long, because we simply didn’t have the time and only wanted to start working on our live project after having found the right team for technical implementation and show design. This is now the case! Started purely as a studio project, “Collapse Under The Empire” is now becoming a live band. We collaborated with several musicians, in order to bring our music on stage. With our live performance, we want to pick up on the special listening experience of our albums and take you on a journey.
Our new album “Sacrifice & Isolation” is finally out. It’s the second part of the double concept work. The first part is called “Shoulders & Giants”. Both albums are also available in a bundle. You can buy the album at our shop: ORDER NOW

Our long awaited second part of our concept work “Sacrifice & Isolation” will be out in Europe on May 23rd 2014 (US two weeks later). Pre-orders start on March 21nd at our online shop. We also release one song of the album as single on that day. It comes with an awesome video, which is directed by our friend Dan Tassel. He already created the music video from the first part, back in 2011.
Hear you soon!
Collapse Under The Empire
With “Lost”, we’d like to give a taste of the coming album. The track can be digitally downloaded via Bandcamp http://rettetdenregenwald.bandcamp.com/. All revenue of the digital download go 100% towards the organization “Rainforest Rescue”. With this, you gonna support the worldwide organization in their continuous work of preserving the rainforest and saving the animals, plants and people living there. If we don’t rethink and massively go against the current trend, there will be no rainforest in the following years and no animals living in it. The meaning of this for the ecosystems and humanity as a whole does not need further explanation…
