After a year-long hiatus, the group re-emerged to play the 2018 Grey Area Festival in Lone Tree, IA, with a full length album in the works and it's fourth member, Claire Thoele (bass/vox), changing Larson over to guitar to fill out the current lineup. This third album, "The Beast," expands on the melodic aspects previously explored on "Ancients" while exploring themes of the coming apocalypse brought on by false prophets/lying politicians.
In 2019, due to a prolonged injury, drummer Eric Dirks was replaced by Tanner Williams. Dead Emperors are currently playing shows and working on finishing up new material with their current lineup.
All Dead Emperors releases are available for purchase on Bandcamp. Please follow us on Facebook and subscribe to our Youtube page for music videos and full album streams.
