Here are the links to everything mentioned in the Sound Check Chat podcast interview with Keith Latinen of Michigan's Empire! Empire! about storytelling in their new album, the emo revival, being star struck, and playing with Mineral.

Story behind the Keith Latinen Podcast:

During Gaelic and Medieval times, professional poets and musicians were employed by patrons monarchs and members of high society to tell the stories of their activities and commemorate the patron’s ancestors. The tradition was meant not only to entertain, but to immortalize their influence and traditions.

The new record from Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate), the project of Michigan-based husband wife duo Keith and Cathy Latinen, is, perhaps accidentally, a natural extension of this tradition. You Will Eventually Be Forgotten is a collection of carefully crafted, meticulous and moody songs that spotlight a band who have honed their story telling. Every moment is intimate and vivid prose that put the patron listener in the middle of a scene from their lives; a living, breathing movie script that is sometimes harrowing and at other times calming, but always unforgettable.
