Song Of The Week: 1/29/12

Song: "Sunday Drive"

Artist: The Early November

Album: "For All Of This" EP

Year: 2002

"Sunday Drive" appears to be a song where the vocalist fears that his relationship with his girl is coming to an end. You sense that the girl has started seeing someone else but has yet to break the news to him. He gets the sense that she is not being totally honest as well. The break doesn't seem to be an abrupt one however. It's almost as if she is letting him down slowly, and he is letting himself get dragged down slowly without much of a fight. It seems he wants it just to end, yet he is holding out hope that she comes back to him. The Early November is a pop punk/emo band from New Jersey that got it's start back in 1999. In 2002, the band released two EP's, "For All Of This" and "The Acoustic EP", which lead singer, Ace Enders, basically recorded himself with his acoustic guitar. These two releases were followed by their debut full length album, 2003's "The Room's Too Cold". The band's most ambitious effort, however, was 2006's "The Mother, The Mechanic, The Path". This album found The Early November taking on the concept album and it was the band's highest charting album on the Billboards. After touring in support of "The Mother, The Mechanic, The Path" into 2007, the band decided to take a bit of a hiatus, though they did not rule out getting together to do small tours or shows in the future. Vocalist Ace Enders stayed busy with some side projects most notably I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody's Business as the other members of the band also concentrated on various projects themselves. In September of 2011, The Early November reunited for their first live appearance since 2007 at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA. Currenty, The Early November has signed to Rise Records and have confirmed that they are working on new material which they hope to have released sometime in the Spring of 2012.
