Over a year in the making, the band’s debut full-length, What It Takes To Move Forward, shows some major growth for the quartet. With a more varied songwriting pallette, Empire! Empire! shape its emo heritage into a bold indie rock album full of progression while still maitaining a striking air of familiarity.
