Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)

Michigan-based emo band Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) is heading out on a tour in support of the reissue of their 2009 debut, What It Takes To Move Forward. The run features the band playing the album in full and it brings them to Chicago on January 30 at Reggies with support from tourmates Warren Franklin & the Founding Fathers (who have a split with Kind of Like Spitting on the way) and locals Bluebirds. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
