Hey rockers and fuzz lovers, we are The Secondhand Empire, a rock trio from Oslo, Norway. Loaded with fuzzy-as-hell bass lines, hard hitting drums and high energy vocals, our first record, 'Heist On A Thrift Store' is out now! Take this track for a spin and embrace the noise!

For fans of

The Trust Fund Kids

Greetings, punks! This is a song that means a lot to me because it's one of the first songs I wrote that I felt truly proud of. It's worth listening to because if you don't I will drink an entire gallon of milk in under a minute. You are liable for whatever happens legally 'cause that's the law.

Motor City Crush

Hello World! We're the band 'Motor City Crush' from Detroit and we like to stomp out our own brand of exciting and energetic guitar-driven rock and roll. If you like gritty, sweaty, out-of-control R&R, we just may be the band for you. Hear it, and see it all at our website.

For fans of

Smokin' on Planes

We're a melodic, garage rock trio from Washington, DC that's often compared to The Replacements and Ryan Adams. We also get compared to garage bands veering toward the pop-punk/catchy end of the spectrum.
