Empire! Empire! "Title Contest"! »

empireempireband:

Ok, time for the contest we were talking about! I am a huge fan of referencing works that I love in our song titles. So much so, that a large body of our discography pays homage to other things that have inspired me or things I love, like quotes from RPGs, books, TV shows/movies, etc. So here…

Here’s a fun contest you can enter to win some cool Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) prizes!

If the “emo revival” (not the #emorevival) had royalty, Keith and Cathy Latinen of Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) might well be the genre’s king and queen. Between Empire! Empire! and their label, Count Your Lucky Stars, the husband/wife duo have been long-time friends, peers and confidants that are instrumental in this niche we’ve all carved out for ourselves. Now the band is poised to take an even bigger role in things with the announcement of their second full-length You Will Eventually Be Forgotten on August 19, 2014 via Topshelf Records and Count Your Lucky Stars Records. A companion graphic novel, titled Ribbon, will also be released on August 19th. Illustrated by artist and friend, Ben Sears, Ribbon tells the stories behind the songs in eleven chapters in his trademark style.
You Will Eventually Be Forgotten may have taken half a decade to complete (actually feels longer, doesn’t it?), but it was absolutely worth the wait. Constant touring and the litany of splits and EPs since their last full-length have noticeably tightened the band and the meticulous lyrics, beautiful guitar melodies, and sincere vocals that have become their hallmark. This record’s loaded with vivid storytelling that makes each Empire! Empire! song feel like a carefully handcrafted gift unique to the listener.

We’re leaving for our UK / European tour in about a month and a half. We’ve all been touring in North America  for so that we usually have people who are willing to let us crash with them most nights we’re on the road. Most of us have never been to Europe or the UK before, and really don’t know too many people in either place. 
It would be awesome if anyone who’d be willing to put us up after any of these shows could reach out to us in the next month and a half. We’re going to be traveling with 9 people (7 of us, Keith from Empire! Empire!, and a driver). I know that seems like a lot, but we are very use to cramped quarters.
We would LOVE it if you have wifi internet. A lot of us have jobs that require us to get on the internet, so thats a big plus to anywhere we could possibly stay. Couches / extra beds / carpeted floor are awesome but not necessary.
If you would like to help, please email us at theworldisa at gmail dot com. Our tour schedule looks like this:
