sunflowerseedswag asked: hey! love your blog. do you know when we'll be able to download the how good does it feel ep, with best friends at 2am and etc.?
Thank you! :3
I’m not sure if you mean purchasing the songs, or just downloading them, so I’ll give you what I think about both.
I think it’ll be a while before Empires puts the EP on Bandcamp or iTunes, because the songs are limited to the EP. Since the EP is exclusive to the shows, if people were able to download the songs, there would probably be less of an incentive to buy the EP. I think once they sell the run of the EPs, they will put the songs online.
I can post download links for the songs on the EP, though! Let me know if you’d like them!
Anonymous asked: is "hell, hope and being really, really loud" a quote from one of the members or something?
Yep! I don’t remember the exact context, but I remember Sean saying it in an interview, so it’s a quote from him. Also, in their interview at Lolla 2012, Sean said the recurring themes of the band were “hell and hope”. When my friend Erika created the new icon for the site, I requested that quote because I really liked it, and I felt it epitomized them and their history.
