Crown The Empire Part Ways With Drummer Brent Taddie

Crown The Empire have parted ways with drummer Brent Taddie. A replacement has yet to be revealed.

The band said the following:

“After many wonderful years of friendship, adventures, and non-stop touring together worldwide, Crown The Empire and Brent Taddie have parted ways. While it is sad for us to see Taddie leave and move on to other things in life, this decision was made amicably between the members as it was understood that people’s interests change over time. To be on a working team, everyone needs to be happy and have the same goals in mind. We wish him nothing but the best in the future with everything he does, and we know he feels the same about us.

2022 will be an exciting time for Crown The Empire and our fans; with so much more new music and touring, you can believe we have everything set up in place to allow for this all to happen without missing a beat. We love you and look forward to seeing you again (all over the world) this year.


Andy, Hayden, and Brandon Crown The Empire”

Taddie also issued his own statement:

“I would like to officially announce that after 10 amazing years I have decided to not continue forward with Crown the Empire.

When the pandemic hit in 2020, it was the first time in 10 years I had any significant amount of time away from the band. It gave me a chance to reflect and truly decide what I wanted to do with the next chapter of my life.

Crown will always have a giant place in my heart and I will cherish all the memories and everything we have done together. I will always love my brothers, Crown the Empire itself and of course all the fans reading this.

Thanks for an unforgettable 10 years.”
