Crown the Empire have just shared a new video for the previously unreleased track “what i am" just in time for the beginning of a world tour cycle. Vocalist Andy Leo confides of the song’s meaning "'what i am' is the most important Crown the Empire song we have released yet. Throughout the past few years, I have been involved in some rough relationships with various people. I spent a lot of time writing the lyrics to this song because I was not having an easy time being so vulnerable and I HAD to get these words out for my own sanity. It's hard for anyone to ask themselves, 'Did I make the right decision here? Am I being selfish or am I finally focusing on myself to be a better and happier person?' The answer was 100% 'yes' and I hope that this song will help anyone who feels the same way."
“what i am is the most important Crown the Empire song we have released yet.”
Last year during the Vans Warped Tour, Crown the Empire released "20/20", the band’s first new music since the release of their 2016 album “Retrograde”. “what I am” gives us an exciting taste of things to come with Retrograde’s 2018 follow up album.
CTE just kicked off a UK & Europe headline tour with support from Volumes and Coldrain. Later this fall they’ll embark on a major US tour supporting Underoath on their epic comeback “Erase Me” Tour. Joining these two heavyweights are Dance Gavin Dance, and The Plot in You.
