Empanic are a four-piece alternative rock group from Brisbane, their music a product of years spent learning and experimenting as a band, a convention that has flourished since their time together at primary school. More recently, artists such as Muse, Karnivool, Royal Blood, Radiohead, and Art of Sleeping have influenced their song writing as they construct a layered musical message throughout an ever-evolving repertoire. While the three minute catchy numbers hit hard, the band’s powerful 10 minute epics command audiences to pay attention as their drink goes warm in their hand.

Empanic have been gigging furiously over the past year at venues such as The New Globe Theatre, The Brightside, and The Triffid. They launched their debut EP 'Drive' at The Milk Factory in Brisbane on November 3rd, released on CD as well as many digital stores and streaming services. Empanic will continue to bulk up their fan base as they prepare for a single release and interstate tour mid-way through 2017.
