Newy band secure spot on national festival tour

Newy band Stone Empire have been added to the line up on the UBERFEST Australian Tour. The music festival making it’s way around Australia in 2015 will hit Brisbane , Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

The guys from Stone Empire have been kicking a few goals this year with three of their songs hitting the Triple J Unearthed Top 100. You can hear cuts from their EP, “Enclosure” at the Cambridge on Friday night (Oct 24) when they open for AC/DC cover band Damnation.

The band told us they are “getting active” with other local bands like Annie O’dee and Heart Attack and Vine in an attempt to create a “band camaraderie” and “generate a scene throughout Newcastle”.

Stone Empire originated in 2011 when lead Vocalist and Guitarist Justin Dorin found himself in Newcastle “with a head full of music and a heart full of pain”. Justin  began turning that pain into lyrics, guitar riffs and drum beats he has in his head. Pulling together a band who could all see the raw passion, Stone Empire was formed.
