Lots and lots of chatter today over the social networks about this upcoming release by Empires called Garage Hymns. Hailing from Chicago, which is really cool actually....I have come across a bunch of bands from Chicago in the past year that kick ass....maybe the midwest city is our next uber trendy music mecca, Empires reflect back to 90's grunge rock with a modern twist! Expect passionate whaling vocals (brotha has got some pipes!) with heavy rock beats and enough guitar distortion to please any gen x-ers coming of age in the 90's along with the new generation of kids looking to release some teen angst. This band may not be as angry as the great 90's bands that influence their sound, but they get the job done!
