Crown The Empire - In Another Life

Crown The Empire have released a brand new track this week entitled "In Another Life" and its simply brutal.  The metalcore group from Dallas starts off hard and heavy with guitar riffs that pound in your head as you feel the band's emotion rip through.  The new track is accompanied with a new video as well as a guest vocal appearance from Courtney LaPlante of Spiritbox.  Her vocals compliment the vocals of Andy Leo and Hayden Tree perfectly.

The video for "In Another Life" is directed by Alex Zarek and takes place in what looks to be an old abandon house, giving the impression the place is full of long-lost memories.  The band is seen playing with intense aggression and emotion amongst old wooden furniture scattered throughout the location.  This single is the first taste of new material from the band since their last album, 2019's Sudden Sky.  


Speaking on the inspiration for the song, vocalist Andy Leo shares:

"In Another Life" was the first song we wrote while working on our new album in the studio. The idea initially started because I was talking with a friend of mine about how we both had just gotten out of serious relationships during the pandemic. These relationships that were once comforting and safe now felt confining. Because of COVID, my life got completely derailed and I was getting very little sleep. My entire identity was so wrapped up in my ability to sing and tour the world that having that taken away from me made me feel like a ghost. Over the course of the next year I started having crazy dreams and seeing strange things around my house. One night I saw feet running up and down the stairs but brushed it off, telling myself I was just imagining things. But then another night my producer came over and mentioned he saw a girl walking up and down the stairs. After some research, I found out there had been an actress from the 1920's who lived in my house. She was a huge partier, slept very few hours, and was even close to the same age as me when she died. I really connected with her story and it inspired me to write this song.  We thought Courtney from Spiritbox would be the perfect fit for a guest feature and she crushed it. We’re so stoked to have her on “In Another Life.”


 Courtney LaPlante adds:

“I'm excited for you to hear this new song, I’m happy to be a part of it and it’s been stuck in my head for the last four months, now it’s time for it to get stuck in yours!”

 

Looking forward to what comes next from Crown The Empire.  In the meantime, it's great to hear their new track along with this killer new video.  You are going to love it!
