Official press release:

Genre-bending, modern post-metalcore quartet, Crown The Empire have announced their fifth studio album DOGMA out April 28 via Rise Records. Preorder the album here.

DOGMA, produced and mixed by Zach Jones (Fever 333, Poorstacy, Scene Queen, Nova Twins), is a diverse album fueled by angst, existential identity, isolation, and determination. Over the last three years, the band took time to reflect on personal and collective priorities. This introspection is reflected lyrically in DOGMA. "The lyrics are less wordy and lofty. It's more honest and direct," shares vocalist Andy Leo who offers a candid perspective on paranormal encounters, manic dreams, and the depths of quarantine.

Bassist Hayden Tree shared the following:

We brought back the classic elements of Crown without taking anything away from what we've done more recently. The high-energy, fast-paced, hard-hitting riffs, with the band's more melodic side, mashed together into an updated sound.

DOGMA will include previously released singles "Immortalize," "In Another Life" featuring Spiritbox's Courtney LaPlante, and "Dancing With The Dead," which combined have garnered 11.5M+ streams to date. The album will also include a collaboration with Palaye Royale's Remington Leith.

Alongside the announcement, the band offers another glimpse at their forthcoming record with the title track, "DOGMA." Check out the music video, co-directed by guitarist Brandon Hoover.

DOGMA tracklist:
2. Black Sheep
3. Modified
4. Paranoid
5. In Another Life (feat. Courtney LaPlante)
6. Superstar (feat. Remington Leith)
7. Dancing with the Dead
8. Immortalize
9. Someone Else
10. Labyrinth

So this whole thing involving their guitarist was just promotion for their new album? Reminds of what Upon A Burning Body did with that "kidnapping"
