The Federal Empire Release Debut EP, Lyric Music Video for “The American Dream”

Alternative band The Federal Empire, have released a brand new lyric video for their latest single, “The American Dream.” The song, which premiered on BuzzBands LA, was recently added to Spotify’s New Music Friday and Weekly Buzz playlists. “The American Dream” is the title track from The Federal Empire’s forthcoming debut EP, available now.

According to the band, “The American Dream” is “a small commentary on instant gratification as human beings. We are all guilty of it. We want what we want and not what we need or what is good for us.” This latest track serves as a follow-up to the upcoming EP’s lead single, “I Never Liked Your Friends,” which was called “liberating and jubilant while at the same time being downright scathing” by All Things Go.

The LA-based trio also released “Hold On and Believe,” a collaborative single with Dutch producer, Martin Garrix. Fans can now stream the song on YouTube, or check out The Federal Empire’s acoustic take on it, also on YouTube.

Next month, The Federal Empire will be hitting the road with violinist and performance artist, Lindsey Stirling. The string of dates kicks off on November 1st in Clearwater, FL, and will wrap on November 12th in Phoenix, AZ. See below for a full list of dates.

The Federal Empire is a Los Angeles-based trio fronted by Chad Wolf, of the multi-platinum selling band, Carolina Liar. Joined by McKay Stevens on synths/programming and Keith Varon on guitar, The Federal Empire combine “classic Americana songwriting with electronic composition and anthemic gang vocals, making for a truly one-of-a-kind sound.”

Wolf, Stevens and Varon initially joined forces after a publisher requested they write songs for popular acts, such as The Chainsmokers and David Guetta. After writing just two tracks together, the three realized they had undeniable songwriting chemistry and decided to create a project of their very own. From that experience The Federal Empire was born.

The band has already generated quite the buzz since their inception. Over the past few months, they have played School Night LA and booked gigs with notable acts including Lindsey Stirling and American Authors. With one Grammy nomination, multiple Top 10 Billboard hits and major radio successes under their collective belt, The Federal Empire are now ready to unleash their debut EP, “The American Dream.”

November 3 – Saenger Theatre – New Orleans, LA w/ Lindsey Stirling
