The Early November is an American rock band from New Jersey. The group formed in 1999 and signed with Drive-Thru Records in 2002. As of 2018, they have released two EPs: For All of This (2002) and The Acoustic EP (2005). They have released four full-length albums: The Room's Too Cold (2003), triple album The Mother, the Mechanic, and the Path (2006), In Currents (2012), and Imbue (2015). Their upcoming album, Lilac, is expected to be released in 2019. The band is currently signed to Rise Records.
Album · 2012 · 12 Songs. In Currents is The Early November’s first project in six years. Lead singer/songwriter Ace Enders and his bandmates seem rejuvenated after their hiatus, dishing out their tuneful emo-punk with the same tormented vigor of their early releases. The quintet’s obsession with romantic disappointment is present, along with hints of a newfound maturity. Enders remains adept at shifting from caressing murmurs to syllable-spitting yelps, capturing the volatile mix of tenderness and rage that seethes in his lyrics.

In Currents, and I quote, is about the idea of being pulled in a direction that you can’t control. Every song brings something new to the table as it pulls you in each of its different directions. The extreme amount of passion and authenticity shines through each song as well. Ace Enders’ vocals really nail this point home. Between the harsh and gravelly notes sung in the chorus of Frayed in Doubt to the extremely catchy Tell Me Why, Enders really finds a way to come through on this album. I feel as if, as far as their discography is concerned, this album sounds like a matured version of The Room’s Too Cold. The Early November have found a way to revitalize their dormant fan base, and I highly recommend anyone who claims to be a fan of this sometimes-stagnant genre to give this a listen. Recommended Tracks: A Stain On The Carpet, Digital Age, Tell Me Why, Call Off The Bells.
TEN's new album In Currents–their first since 2006's d triple album The Mother, the Mechanic, and the Path–has plenty of nods to beats covered on their debut, but without the "time and place" feel that permeates The Room's Too Cold and a more mature, well-rounded disposition. The rest of the Early November are at the top of their games on In Currents as well. Drummer Jeff Kummer expertly navigates some deceptively difficult tempo changes on "Close To You" and "Guilt & Swell;" guitarist Joe Marro adds an extra layer to their sound with immense piano parts throughout the album, but most notably on "Close To You" and the driving "Wearing a Tie;" lead guitarist Phil Lugg shows off his chops in an almost Wyld Stallyns-esque fashion on.
