Culture Shock! new single “Empire”

Teenage band, Culture Shock! returns with their second single release “Empire!” a track that very much resembles 70’s Hard Rock from the likes of Black Sabbath. Out now!


What’s going on ladies and gentlemen, welcome back! It’s your boy MadZen and today we will witness the return of these Cape Coral kids in this slow-burning Rock track inspired by the classics. A track that brings all the cool with powerful riffs and psychedelic energies. Let’s get to it!

Culture Shock! is a band created by teens Ben Archer (BASS, VOCALS), Ethan Reinek (DRUMS), and Travis Rains (GUITAR, MOUTH NOISES). They haven’t even finished high school, but they are already making waves thanks to their debut single Flashflood, which has already more than 22k plays on Spotify. Damn!

These guys love music, and are on a quest to follow the path of the musician, even if people make fun of them! So far nothing has faced them, and they stand strong both in will and spirit. This second track proves it. “Empire” is one of the first songs they wrote as a band in 2021, and it is a Hard Rock / Metal tune infused with Psychedelic melodies.

Although the drums were created on a computer, they did a great job making them feel real, and they set the foundation for the grounding bass and the high-gained guitars. Vocals are high reaching, just like Ozzy’s, and the overall mood would make the Prince of Darkness proud. When asked about the meaning behind the track, the artists responded: “It’s about the feeling of living in a society that caters to people not like us, and how we can’t let ourselves show how scared of the future we are.

“Empire” is also the second single off of their upcoming EP and we can’t wait to hear what they’ve been up to.

So, go ahead and listen now!
