The Early November announces new album Lilac

Lilac is in bloom. The highly anticipated 5th studio album from alternative rock icons The Early November is set to be released on September 27 via Rise Records. 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. Pre-orders are available now alongside a brand new video for lead single “Hit By A Car (In Euphoria)”:

“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.”

The Early November will be supporting the release with a fall headline tour featuring support from Have Mercy and OWEL. The month-long run kicks off on September 13 in College Park, with stops in Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago, and more. It concludes with a hometown show in Philadelphia on October 19. Tickets for all shows are on sale now and available at

The Early November are eagerly preparing to share their new album, Lilac, out September 27, 2019. The Early November w/Have Mercy & OWEL will perform at Chain Reaction, located at 1652 W Lincoln Ave in Anaheim, with the doors opening at 7 p.m.
