On the Friday Guest DJ Show this week: EMPTY TRAIL!

Empty Trail

EMPTY TRAIL from Austin, Texas, USA is comprised of members Rick Lambert (vocals/guitar), Shane Wallin (bass), and Rom Gov (drums). “The band essentially formed here in Austin,” recalls Lambert. “However, It has been a personal project of mine since the spring of 2013 while I was living in Los Angeles. I thought it would be better to start a band in Austin because of the highly saturated market in Los Angeles. I went through a couple of members but eventually found the full live band in the summer of 2016. I decided to keep it as a 3-piece. It seemed a bit less expected.”

Lambert describes EMPTY TRAIL as “a personal endeavour,” and is the best man to ask which artists inspired the trio musically. “Metallica was one of the first bands that moved me. Frankly, and I know I’m not the only guitar player to say this, they were what created my passion and drive to play the guitar. After this point, I was the biggest Megadeth fan, and I think you could see this in our guitar work. I mean, all of the greats influenced me, and I believe the rest of the band would agree. From a vocal standpoint, the 90s era grunge made the biggest impact for me. All the depressive topics just resonated with me. The depth and emotion in the lyrics and singers really drew me in.”

EMPTY TRAIL is a three-piece Modern Rock band that has an EP and a new single out. After the show we’ll play the entirety of the forthcoming Lost EP.
