The video also announces the band’s partnership with Sumerian Records, home of Payale Royale, Asking Alexandria, Circa Survive, Bones UK, Night Riots, and others. Wolf said of the announcement, “It’s a solid fit for a number of reasons. As a band we wanted a home that was going to give us space to develop this project for the long term.” Of the signing, McKay added “The label president Ash [Avildsen] found our music and fell in love with it so he reached out to us. I think it was Ash’s passion and belief in the music that fueled us to sign with him.” Avildsen agreed saying, “I listen to music based on mood, not genre. I love great storytellers and great songwriters. Chad and McKay as a duo do both so well. They won me over the first time I heard them. As Sumerian continues to grow and diversify, alternative anthems like those of The Federal Empire are paramount.”
