Title: Spit The Dark Artist: Empires 204 plays


Love is best an illusion
Since time is so short
Jump with confusion
Eyes closed for lives to open up
To open up
Free fall with me to open up
To open up

Empires are thrilled to announce their major label debut Orphan, out September 23rd on Chop Shop / Island Records. Produced byJohn Congleton (St. Vincent, The Black Angels, Explosions in the Sky), Orphan is a collection of songs immersed in classic post punk and indie rock ‘n’ roll circa 1989-1991, exploring the sonic adventurers and emotional heft of artists such as Roxy Music, Wire, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.”


This dark new rock tune “Please Don’t Tell My Lover” by Empires is catchy and we got into it right away. Listen:

Earlier this month we posted a video of Empires covering The Flaming Lips at The Hangout. Here the quartet shares one of their own songs, the title track to their new EP

Really great toned-down version of HGDIF!


Did I ever post this one? It isn’t in my Empires tag. This was the first one I did about ‘em.
