Listen: Emperors Club new LP “Killer Companion” streaming free this week only

Hello music lovers, got a nice tip this weekend from IC indie rockers Emperors Club–this week only they are streaming their new LP, Killer Companion, for the unbeatable price of FREE in advance of its official release next week. Listen below, and see the band live this Friday as they open for Divine Fits at the Blue Moose Tap House, as part of the Mission Creek Festival.

The album will be released on Bandcamp (price not yet announced). In an email, bassist Amanda Crosby says “We’ve been talking about physical copies eventually, but haven’t made a plan for that.”

Enjoy the music, and my congrats to Emperors Club!
