No Sleep Records is announcing that Aficionado will be releasing Empty on September 18th. The release will be available digitally as well as on limited edition vinyl 7”, which can be pre-ordered now at nosleepstore.com.

Mumford and Sons finally got around to releasing their single for their much-anticipated sophomore album Babel.
