EVOLUTION EMPIRE to Support ILL NIÑO on the "Ill Texas Familia" Tour with UPON A BURNING BODY

"Fist Of God" can be streamed/downloaded at

EVOLUTION EMPIRE (w/ former members of Hellyeah, Danzig, Fear Factory) is tapped to support Latin Metal legends ILL NIÑO on the "Ill Texas Familia" tour, scheduled for this summer with UPON A BURNING BODY, KING 810, INCITE, and BORN IN BLOOD. The band released their debut single "Fist Of God" to all major platforms today.

EVOLUTION EMPIRE started in Dallas, Texas, where frontman Chris Roberts and drummer Rob Youells were introduced to each other by their mutual manager, Dave Chavarri (Ill Niño, Terror Universal). The next piece of the puzzle was to begin writing for their debut release and choose a production team. The band landed producers Eddie Wohl (Anthrax, Fuel, Ill Niño) and Chavarri. Still in need of a bassist and guitar player, the band’s manager reached out to bassist Jerry Montano (Hellyeah, Danzig) and guitarist Christian Olde Wolbers (ex-Fear Factory). Both were immediately on board and agreed to a guest appearance on the video and debut single "First Of God".

EVOLUTION EMPIRE is now completed by bringing monster lead guitarist Joe Dragich (Terror Universal) and veteran bassist Sal Dominguez (Ill Niño, ex-Upon A Burning Body) into the fold. Keep an eye out for EVOLUTION EMPIRE as they are confirmed for major U.S. and International tours throughout 2021 - 2022.

°July 10th, El Paso, TX at Rock House (with Upon A Burning Body)
