Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) stream album, tour (2014)

Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) are streaming their sophomore full-length You Will Eventually Be Forgotten in full today via Interview Magazine.  The record comes out August 19 via Topshelf Records and Count Your Lucky Stars Records and is currently available for pre-order.  Downloads will also be available for a special rate of $5 via the Topshelf Bandcamp and Count Your Lucky Stars Bandcamp from this Friday until next Tuesday.

Listen to You Will Eventually Be Forgotten

A companion graphic novel to the new full-length, titled Ribbon, will also be released on August 19.  Illustrated by artist Ben Sears, known for his work with bands such as La Dispute, Andrew Jackson Jihad, The Wonder Years and countless others, Ribbon tells the stories behind the songs in eleven chapters of gorgeous imagery.  You Will Eventually Be Forgotten may have taken half a decade to complete, but it was absolutely worth the wait.
