Michigan emo band Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) released their second album in 2014, and now they'll be reissuing their 2009 debut, What It Takes to Move Forward, on February 9 via Count Your Lucky Stars (the label they run). In honor of that reissue, they'll be playing it in full on a tour with Warren Franklin & the Founding Fathers which begins later this month and hits NYC on February 6 at Palisades. Tickets for the NYC show are on sale now.
