The Early November Reveal Big Plans For the New Year

The Early November are going to have a busy 2015.

On New Year’s Day, the New Jersey-based band posted on Facebook that they will be releasing a new album and would be heading out on tour sometime this year.

The touring should not come as a surprise since last year, it was confirmed they would be one of Motion City Soundtrack’s supporting acts on their “Commit This to Memory Tenth Anniversary” tour which is slated to begin later this month.

Plus, frontman Ace Enders has been keeping himself busy by hitting the road; his side project, I Can Make a Mess, just got off a short holiday tour with Anthony Green from Circa Survive, Dan Campbell from The Wonder Years, and Elder Brother.

The news of a new album comes over two years after the release of their last record, In Currents. In Currents was the band’s first new set of songs after reuniting following a lengthy hiatus; the band went on hiatus in 2007.

Ace Enders Releases New Acoustic Song

Ace Enders is known to many as the lead singer of The Early November and I Can Make a Mess Like Nobody’s Business, but now the singer is coming out with a track in which it’s just him and his guitar.

The song which is titled “One More Song” debuted on the internet a few days ago, but now the new song with its video can be seen here. The video just features the singer strumming on his guitar in a corner of a room with a few electrical candles illumination his corner; simple and to the point so you can actually listen to the words.

While this is just a solo tune, it doesn’t mean that Enders will be leaving The Early November to go solo; the band are scheduled to perform at Skate and Surf Festival in Asbury Park, NJ on Saturday, May 17th. .

When the Skate and Surf announced that they were trying to return to their original location of Asbury Park, some were wondering if the festival would be able to do so.

Turns out, they could and they did.

Festival organizers confirmed today that the music festival would be heading back home to Asbury Park, NJ; a perfect way to continue their mission on going back to their roots. Reportedly, the City of Park voted unanimously on a multi-year deal last night to bring Skate And Surf back. The unanimous vote also has allowed the festival to expand to the beach area of the town.

According to the Asbury Park Press, there will be five stages on Ocean Avenue and Bradley Park as well as a gaming interactive room will be at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel. After parties will reportedly be held at the near by clubs.

Last month, the full line-up for the show had been revealed which included Circa Survive, The Early November, Saosin with Anthony Green and of course the reunion of Midtown. Alongside the news of the location permit, five more acts had been revealed for the two-day festival as well as some squashed rumors that had been floating around.

The new additions to the line-up will include Knuckle Puck, Unlocking the Truth, Lil Dicky, Animals as Leaders, and United Nations. As for the denounced rumors, Brand New and My Chemical Romance are not performing at the festival, even though it would be a fantastic way to welcome the festival back home.

Check out the revised schedule and a map of Asbury Park to familiarize yourselves with if you’re heading to Jersey for the shows in May.

The Skate and Surf Festival had revealed a few weeks back that they would be returning to their roots with 2014’s line-up; anything to make up for the chaotic mess that was 2013’s. Turns out, they stuck to their vows with the reveal of this year’s punk/rock-inspired bill.

Last week, festival organizers had revealed the official flyer for this year’s event, but there was a catch; the actual names of the performers had been covered with duct tape.

The perfect way to troll their attendees.

Hoping to soothe the pain from their game, organizers advised fans not to worry because the tape would be removed on Monday (today).

Performers had been revealed to include Saosin with original vocalist Anthony Green, The Early November, Emmure, Hidden in Plain View, and many more including a band who pulled a similar troll, Midtown.

Late last week, Midtown’s drummer Rob Hitt, posted a picture of his drum kit on the band’s official Twitter. The picture got the ball rolling on rumors of their reunion. Turns out, that is exactly what that picture turned out to be: a clue.

Skate and Surf is set to take place on May 17 and 18 in Middletown, New Jersey. The untaped flyer can be seen below as well as ticket information which goes on sale tomorrow afternoon.
