Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) Stream First Single Off New Album


After a long wait, this new Empire! Empire! album is happening. Following the mid-June announcement of You Will Eventually Be Forgotten and its various parts, the lead single was premiered by Stereogum.

“If It’s Bad News, It Can Wait” is undoubtedly an Empire! Empire! song; those dual twinkling guitars serve as a twin backbone for the whole track as Keith Latinen narrates a small story with a big impact. Like the rest of the album, this track is a short story from Latinen’s own life. The band has been posting lyrics to songs on Mondays and Wednesdays over on their Facebook, giving listeners a chance to read the stories before they hear them.

You Will Eventually Be Forgotten is out August 19 on Topshelf Records and the band’s own Count Your Lucky Stars Records. There will also be a graphic novel using the album’s lyrics.
