Dallas rockers Crown The Empire have announced they will be releasing their 3rd studio album, Retrograde. The album, which will be released on July 22nd via Rise Records, will continue to showcase the bands evolution of personal and musical growth. Vocalist Andy Leo shares, “This album has been an accumulation of ideas, lessons and observations about who we are as a band and how we see the world. It’s taken 5 years for us to grow and really nail down a sound that doesn’t fit the status quo of what people are expecting from us. We’ve reinvented ourselves and we hope you enjoy the ride.”
