    Free Music Friday: Empires

    Empires is a new band of old friends from Chicago, Illinois. “It’s always felt like things just fall in place for us,” says guitarist Tom Conrad. “I think it’s a testament to how we approach things and the fact that we were friends long before we were bandmates. We all have different perspectives musically, but there’s a collective mindset that makes it all work.” As evidence of the collective mindset, both Conrad and lead-singer Sean Van Vleet simultaneously conceived the band name on the same day without each others knowledge.
