(TRR) – The Early November have announced their brand new studio album Lilac. The LP set to be released on September 27 via Rise Records. Pre-orders are available now alongside a brand new video for lead single “Hit By A Car (In Euphoria)“HERE.
The band’s first album since 2015’s Imbue, Lilac represents a shift towards a more pop-centric sound while preserving the raw vulnerability that The Early November has become known for.
“Lilac started with the idea of trying to help someone. I was losing sleep over it, and it got really heavy for me. There were times when I got lost in wishing that things would get better,” admits lead singer Ace Enders. “But over time it became a reflection of the idea that it’s okay to be dark, it’s okay to feel like you’re at the bottom. Sometimes you dig these deep holes for yourself – you just have to realize it’s up to you to get out if it.”
This fall, the band will be launching a full North American tour to support their new record. The trek kicks off on September 13 at the Milkboy Arthouse in College Park, MD and wraps up on October 19 at the TLA in Philadelphia, PA. A full list of dates and venues can be found below. Tickets are available for purchase HERE.
