Breakout rock band Crown The Empire has premiere a new song, “Weight of the World,” from the band’s forthcoming album, Retrograde, that’s due out on July 22nd via Rise Records. Fans can pre-order the record now at cte.merchnow.com.
“Everyone has something to say and an opinion to give (thanks internet!) Weight of the World is about living under the unblinking eyes and scrutiny of social media, whether you are in a band, a public figure or just a kid trying to belong. It’s about feeling the pressure of trying to please EVERYONE all the time, but only to not please anyone at all.” – Andy Leo (Vocalist)
Crown The Empire’s new anthemic single “Weight of the World” follows the band’s recent video release of “Zero,” which has ignited a firestorm of anticipation for what is lining up to be the band’s mainstream breakout record, Retrograde. The band’s previous release, The Resistance: Rise of The Runaways was released in 2014 and debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
