The Early November Release First Studio Album In Six Years Today
Six years have passed since Hammonton, New Jersey's The Early November released what, at the time, appeared to be their final album, the conceptual and challenging three-disc offering The Mother, The Mechanic & The Path. Rejuvenated and reunited with its original lineup, the band is back with their Rise Records debut titled In Currents.
Released online and in stores on Tuesday, July 10, In Currents, an album recently given 4-out-of-5 stars by Alternative Press Magazine, is a body of work that strongly and positively represents the band's entire career, blending both the raw and youthful attitude of 2003's The Room's Too Cold with the ambitious, sonic experimentation of The Mother, The Mechanic & The Path. Frontman Ace Enders describes In Currents as "a journey through life's joys and struggles" and "being pulled in a direction you can't control ... like an ocean current or the flow of electricity." It's a scenario everyone in this world is in and can relate to. It's not about where those currents will eventually take you, it's about the journey you'll have and the experiences you'll take with you that matter the most.
The Cure´s original name was Easy Cure, which was taken from the name of one of the group´s early songs. The name was later shortened to The Cure because frontman Robert Smith felt the name was too American and "too hippyish".
