T & N is an American heavy metal band formed in 2011 by then-current and former members of heavy metal band Dokken. The band, originally named Tooth and Nail, was forced to change their name in March 2012 due to legal concerns, as the name was already trademarked.

The band announced on 15 December 2011 that they were in the process of recording an album consisting of both original material and Dokken covers, due to be released October 31, 2012. On 24 September 2012, the album's title was announced as Slave to the Empire, to be released on 31 October by Rat Pak Records.

In support of Slave to the Empire, T & N went on tour in late 2012, playing shows in the United States, eastern Asia and Europe between October and December.
