Fresh off the release of their new album, CROWN THE EMPIRE has announced a fall headline tour in support of Retrograde. Following the band’s monumental run on this summer’s Vans Warped Tour and tours of Japan and Europe, CROWN THE EMPIRE will be returning to the U.S. for a tour with support from BLESSTHEFALL, NEW YEARS DAY, TOO CLOSE TO TOUCH and LIGHT UP THE SKY, which will kick off on November 1st in Phoenix, AZ and will wrap on December 4th with a hometown show in Dallas. VIP tickets go on sale today at 12PM PST (ticketspin.com/crown-the-empire) and general on sales begin Friday.

CROWN THE EMPIRE has spent the last month and half igniting a firestorm of anticipation on the Vans Warped Tour for their new album Retrograde, and the excitement has paid off! The record sold 18,000 copies in its first week and landed the top #1 position on the Top Rock Albums chart. It also claimed #1 Hard Rock Albums, #1 Independent, #3 Top Current Albums and #15 Billboard 200, making it the second album in a row from the band to debut in the Top 20.

Retrograde features 11 anthemic tracks like “Hologram”, “Weight Of The World” and “Zero” that are heating up at rock radio now. Follow the band at https://www.facebook.com/Crowntheempire for updates.
