Egypt Central was an American alternative metal band from Memphis, Tennessee.
Egypt Central was formed on October 2, 2002. They wrote and recorded for one year until generating a buzz in their hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. After eight shows, they caught the attention of former Lava Records CEO Jason Flom. Flom offered the band a record deal after seeing their live performances. Egypt Central's self-titled debut album was recorded with producer Josh Abraham in Los Angeles. It experienced many delays, eventually being released by Fat Lady Music on January 15, 2008. Two singles were released to promote the album: "You Make Me Sick" and "Taking You Down". These two tracks also ended up being on the soundtrack of the video game WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2009. They have performed with bands like Disturbed, Seether, Sevendust, Hurt, Red, In This Moment, and many others.
Egypt Central completed work on their second studio album, entitled White Rabbit, in December 2010 with producer Skidd Mills and released it on May 31, 2011. The album received many positive reviews from many sources. The album's title track was released as the first single on March 1, 2011. The band toured from March–May on the Tour of the American Dream tour with Cold and Kopek. The band toured on their Down the Hole headlining tour with Abused Romance and Candlelight Red in June and with Burn Halo and Red Line Chemistry in July. In addition to several festival appearances, the band toured briefly with Hinder, Saving Abel, and Adelitas Way in August. The band supported Pop Evil on a number of shows in September followed by a supporting leg of shows with Hinder and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus in October. The band opened for Staind at the Q103 Thanksgiving Hangover, November 26 at the Washington Avenue Armory in Albany New York. They then joined Puddle of Mudd and Pop Evil on December 9 for the 105.7 The X (WIXO) Nutcracker Eleven at the Expo Gardens in Peoria.
On December 3, 2012, after being inactive for a year, bassist Joey Chicago announced through a letter on Facebook that both vocalist and guitarist John Falls and Jeff James would not be continuing on with the band, thus bringing an end to Egypt Central.
In 2014 an open letter was posted on Egypt Central's Facebook. A new EP of previously unreleased songs was announced titled "Murder in the French Quarter", set for release on August 19, 2014. It is reportedly the band's final release.Former
