Premiere: The Black Ships “Dead Empires”

Saratoga Springs, NY band, The Black Ships are preparing to self-release Dead Empires on December 4th. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the album’s lead single “Dead Empires.” The track would sound at home on 80s college radio. The guitar sound seems ripped directly out of “Love Will Tear Us Apart” but with vocals more akin to Echo and the Bunnymen. There is not a lot that sounds “modern” about “Dead Empires” but there doesn’t need to be when you nail the past this well.
