To get fans excited, the band has released the first single "Please Don't Tell My Lover." Check it out HERE.
Earlier this summer the Chicago rock band released the EP How Good Does it Feel, which featured several new tracks from Orphan, and was met with an incredible reaction from music critics. The band's non-stop touring and stimulating live show, which included talked about performances at Bonnaroo and the Hangout Music Festival, also saw the group win over a wide range of concertgoers.
Along with NPR, GQ, Interview Magazine, Stereogum, and Paste, Rolling Stone raves "Sharp, creative and bringing a commendable freshness to the sometimes drearily derivative world of contemporary rock, Empires are a remarkably good rock n' roll band. In a world full of faceless, regurgitated rhythms and emotion-by-numbers, the band's music is strikingly compact, precise and non-excessive...Empires are a young, powerful band who leave a distinctly positive impression wherever they play. Their music is some of this year's very best."
Empires recently made their late night television debut on Late Show with David Letterman. Watch it HERE.
The band is currently on the road with Chain Gaing of 1974, are looking forward to playing this year's Austin City Limits and plan to spend all of 2014/15 on the road. Pre-orders will be available starting August 19th.
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com/p/anonymous.html.
