about

Twenty five minutes of stunning melodic post-rock/prog rock fury. Sky scraping guitars and powerful grooves all wrapped up in beautiful lucid instrumental sections that collide with pulverizing triple guitar assaults.

Effortlessly atmospheric and meticulously constructed, Atlas : Empire are your next favourite band. We demand them to be.

Track Name: Mitchy Valentino Sleeps With the Fishes
Shattered by repeating heartbeats voiced by the machine
Every trace of dreaming or sense of some relief

It's a good sign that I'm breathing
But nothing comes out when I scream

The open water is where you'll sleep tonight
Below the surface where our bodies are entwined
An open grave, beneath the waves, beyond the light
We'll keep you here til it feels right

I swear you feel familiar
Wearing someone else's skin
Smiling at the sutures
Where my cables become veins

Is it a good thing I'm still bleeding?
When my limbs won't let me leave

The open water is where you'll sleep tonight
Below the surface where our bodies are entwined
An open grave, beneath the waves, beyond the light
We'll keep you here til it feels...

You were always on the inside
That would be the safest place to hide

Where my limbs wont let me leave
Where my cables become veins

The open water is where you'll sleep tonight
Below the surface where our bodies are entwined
An open grave, beneath the waves, beyond the light
We'll hold you down til it feels right
Track Name: Binary Lung
Pull back the stitches
To excavate your bones
Each forgotten instrument
Contracted to the cause

Somehow its not enough
Somehow we must learn

To breathe unassisted, by this binary lung
So we call this a saviour, while it anchors us down

To reclaim the function
While compromising form
These structures seem familiar
but without instruction we can never learn

To breathe unassisted, by this binary lung
while we call this a saviour, it will anchor us down

To be weightless and stillborn
We'll slip the shackles and rise up

To breathe unassisted, by this binary lung

To breathe unrestricted, by this binary lung
so we called off the saviour, now we're ready to drown

breathe slow...fade out
Eyes closed...let go

We are the architects of sleep
