SMILE EMPTY SOUL is a hard rock trio that originated in Los Angeles, CA in the late 1990’s and has stayed true to their brand of “no bullshit”, “real as it gets” hard rock to this day.
The band signed a major label record deal in 2003 to release their self-titled, gold selling debut in May of that year, and realized huge success at alternative radio, rock radio, and the music video channels that have since fallen by the wayside.
After 3 charting singles and videos from the debut release, the band ran into trouble with their record company (which was in the midst of turmoil at the top levels), and found themselves working extra hard in the trenches signed to indie label’s.
This would become SMILE EMPTY SOUL‘ s destiny, as they would go on to release record after record, on label after label.
The band has become known for its constant touring and never wavering honest sound/lyrics.
They have never changed for anybody, and turned down many opportunities to “sell out” because it’s just not who they are.
Now on March 10th of 2017 SMILE EMPTY SOUL will release its new album Rarities, a collection of songs recorded over the course of their careers that haven’t been officially released before.
With its 8th album on the way, and a 2017 calendar full of tour dates, SMILE EMPTY SOUL seems to be as strong as ever, and further cementing themselves as one of the hardest working rock bands in existence.
