Empress Of is currently opening for Rina Sawayama on her headline North American tour. They will play their next show together in Denver on Tuesday night, with upcoming shows in Seattle, San Francisco, Santa Ana, Bentoville, New Orleans, Austin, and San Antonio. Empress Of will also be headlining a show in Los Angeles at the Masonic Lodge on October 4. See below for further details.

"Kiss Me" is the first new song by Empress Of since her 2022 EP, Save Me. Earlier this year she appeared on Jam City's "Wild n Sweet" plus Lewis OfMan's "Highway." Sawayama, meanwhile, released her album Hold The Girl last year. She recently starred as the bow and arrow-wielding Akira in John Wick: Chapter 4, as well as making headlines for calling out her Dirty Hit label boss, The 1975's Matty Healy, live on stage.
