Ahead of their self-titled full-length album arrival on June 14, The Early November has unleashed the powerful new single, “The Empress.” The new release marks the fifth preview of the band’s forthcoming 10-track collection, which you can preorder via Pure Noise Records here.

“This song is about how hard it is to hold it together sometimes. We have to pretend a lot of the time to keep existing in the entertainment world. I can’t say enough how grateful I am… but I also can’t say it’s been a walk in the park,” frontman Ace Enders shares. “Emotionally, I have been devastated many times, got back up to be knocked over again. And as a result, just kind of feel an unraveling of sorts almost all the time. This song is my inner struggle with overcoming that.”

Acting as the album opener, “The Empress” sets the tone of the record with its anthemic sing-along appeal and raw vulnerability. The track is propelled by its infectious chorus: “Now we all want the same thing/Without the difficult and blaming/You see that looks can be deceiving/And what you don’t see is that everybody’s bleeding.” Check out “The Empress” music video, directed by Trevor Bowman, below.

Following the release of their self-titled album, The Early November is scheduled to headline across the U.S. with support from Spitalfield, Hellogoodbye, Hit The Lights, and Cliffdiver. You can check out their full touring schedule below and purchase tickets here.
