The tale of self-proclaimed Haute rockers Young Empires is quite unconventional. Their story began in the fall of 2009, when bass guitarist Jake Palahnuk placed an ad on Craigslist looking for like-minded musicians in Toronto, Canada. The selected respondents were guitarist Aaron Ellingson and lead vocalist Matthew Vlahovich.

“We never really talked about music,” Aaron says. “It’s one of those things in retrospect that’s genius. Everything with this band is about synchronicity. We didn’t have any preconceptions. We just wanted to get in a room and make noise.”

The trio began rehearsing and booked their first gig within two weeks of forming, putting pressure on the musicians to write viable songs, practice relentlessly, and become savvy in sampling and analog drum machine programming.
