Nashville based Alt Country duo The August Empire have released their self titled full album after a 4 year hiatus, now available on popular music platforms, including Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.
For their self titled full album followup to Before The Hereafter they have enlisted the likes of producer/mixers Josh Kaler (Butch Walker, Frances Cone, Heather Nova) and Matt Sherrod (Beck, Ryan Bingham, Crowded House) to chillingly wonderful effect. The August Empire (Dante Marchi and Liz Constantine) have placed songs on multiple film and TV projects, including Showtime's hit series Shameless.
