EMPIRE! EMPIRE! (I WAS A LONELY ESTATE) – TOUR

Beginning on Friday, Michigan’s Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) will embark on a short Winter tour in support of its two latest releases on Count Your Lucky Stars.

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.

Listen to “What Safe Means” (Free mp3)

Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) has also recently released new vinyl in the form of a Split 7″ with label mates Football, Etc. The record was co-released by the band’s own Count Your Lucky Stars label and UK distro strictly no capital letters. You can pick up a copy of the 7″ from either one.

THE REPTILIAN – Winter Tour with Cloud Mouth

THE REPTILIAN is once again taking its unique brand of party math rock on the road, continuing to support its first proper release, Boys’ Life, which was released earlier this year on Count Your Lucky Stars.

While the band will be playing most shows with Cloud Mouth, it will also find itself sharing the stage with the likes of Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Victor! Fix The Sun, La Dispute, Joie De Vivre, My Heart To Joy, Loose Lips Sink Ships, Noumenon and Native.

In addition, The Reptilian will make a brief detour for studio time in Rockford, IL, where it will be recording for a 4-way split with labelmates Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate), Annabel and Joie De Vivre. The album will of course be released by Count Your Lucky Stars in 2010.

Listen to “I’ll Ram My Ovipositor Down Your Throat And Lay My Eggs In Your Chest But, I’m Not An Alien!” (Free mp3)

As you can see the band needs some help with shows in certain cities. If you can help out, please email reptilianband520@gmail.com.
