Empires’ Chicago Tribune article has been published in the Red Eye supplement of the Tribune today!

Interview with Max and Tom from Bonaroo, about festival life, the upcoming LP, and success. Everyone’s really smiley, and the questions are great, so be sure to check this out!

Empires – which released its new EP, “How Good Does it Feel?” this past Tuesday and expects to release its full-length album in the fall – taped its “Letterman” performance in the afternoon and opted to watch it when it aired that night at a bar in New York’s Williamsburg neighborhood. That’s when Van Vleet said it finally hit him what had just taken place.

“There were maybe 15 people in the bar,” Van Vleet said. “It was pretty empty, but it was pretty awesome. The bar cut the music when we came on. That was the moment where I was like ‘Oh (crap), it’s happening.’ But not before that. The whole bar – all 15 people there – got up and someone bought us drinks. It was pretty cool. I probably won’t watch it again. I don’t think it’s going to beat being at that bar watching it.”
