  • The Empire Shall Fall are currently donating all proceeds from the sale of their latest T-shirt by Matt Yezuita to the Gulf Oil Disaster. Said bassist Nick Sollecito: "We wanted to help make a difference, even if it's a very small difference. We decided to donate 100% of the proceeds of this shirt to Gulf Coast Wildlife Rescue, a small organization in Texas, along the Gulf Coast. The devastation will take years to clean up. Hopefully, the money we raise can help out a few animals.This is something we consider to be very important, so if there was ever a time to buy a TESF shirt, now would be that time."
