We won't tell their lover, but we will tell you that you should listen to Empires' new track "Please Don't Tell My Lover." It follows the release of their stellar debut single "How Good Does It Feel?" and brings us yet another solid dark-pop tune. It's reminiscent of The Airborne Toxic Event and The National, and it's great.

I just saw these guys on Monday and they put on one hell of a show (shout out to the vocalist for having insane stage presence), and if you'd like to see them for yourself, you can view all of their tour dates below. It includes stops at Bonnaroo, Summerfest, and Austin City Limits.
