Empires are quickly becoming one of the must-hear acts of 2014, with their previous tune 'How Good Does It Feel?' earning a spot on the upcoming EA Sports NHL 2015 video game. They announced their debut album Orphan a few weeks back, and the band have posted the lastest tune from it in the form of 'Honeyblood'. Where 'How Good Does It Feel?' and 'Please Don't Tell My Lover' have been fairly upbeat, 'Honeyblood' sees them exploring a darker side, and it may be their best work yet. Orphan drops on 23 September via Chop Shop/Island.
