Imperials began as a smaller group in 2008 known as Broken Knives. They were started by Morgan Chosnyk and Louie Husted but shortly after broke up when Louie moved to Los Angeles, CA.  

In May 2012 Louie moved back up to Shoreline, and along with Morgan, and Jeff Alvarez, they formed the band Imperials.

Morgan did lead vocals, Louie was bass guitar and Jeff Alvarez was on drums. Keegan King was asked to join on guitar in August 2012. They played three live shows in Seattle before the band decided to take a hiatus at the beginning of January 2013.

During this time Jeff Alvarez had quit the band and Alex Hawley joined the band as a bass guitar player and practiced with Keegan and Louie with some new songs. Later on Morgan started writing and singing for the band again in practice and they are returning to the stage at the Comet Tavern July 4, 2013 at 7pm.

Current line-up:
Morgan Chosnyk - Lead Vocals and Drums
Louie Husted - Drums and Guitar
Keegan King - Guitar and Keyboards
Alex Hawley - Bass

Their music genre is self-described as closest to Goth Rock, Dark Wave, rooted with a little good ol' Seattle 90's Grunge. The band's influences are Deftones, Smashing Pumpkins, Yeah Yeah Yeah's, Susie and the Banshies, and Horror movie soundtracks. 

You can hear them on Soundcloud but I recommend seeing them live as they bring much more energy to the stage than they do to the studio.
