@weareempires: Happy Tuesday, Party People - ‘How Good Does It Feel’ is now on @iTunesMusic & @Spotify.
Note: HGDIF (and the EP) isn’t on Bandcamp, so definitely continue supporting as directly as you can through going to shows, buying merch and CDs through their site and through their shows.
"Empires is a four-piece band from Chicago that you’ll be hearing a lot of in 2014. “How Good Does It Feel” is a rousing nü-New Wave anthem signifying their successful leap from DIY rockers to the big leagues. The Owl Mag will be on the road with Empires this Spring as the group introduces material from upcoming release Orphans, produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Wye Oak). In addition to opening for Margot & The Nuclear So And So’s, Empires will make a few pit stops at notable festivals old and new. Stay tuned for excerpts featuring exclusive photos from our Tour Diary and a chance to win the entire book!”
