Arthur Ace Enders
When I Hit the Ground
(Early November, Starting Line, Chiodos, All Time Low, Copeland, Rocket Summer, Socratic)
Released on March 17, 2009
Being a seminal and iconic figure at such young an age is a hefty burden for Ace Enders who fronted the influential and important rock band The Early November. At 26 years of age, Ace led his band through three well-received albums before deciding
it was time for him to branch off for a solo project.
In December 2008, Ace and longtime producer and friend Chris Badami assembled
Ace Enders and A Million Different People - a veritable who’s who in the new rock starfield including Mark Hoppus, Matt Thiessen (Relient K), Kenny Vasoli (Starting Line), Craig
Owens (Chiodos), Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low), Aaron Marsh (Copeland), Duane F. Okun (Socratic), and Bryce Avery (the Rocket Summer). The final product of their work, titled When I Hit The Ground, is filled with bright, melodic and complex songs that appeal to old Early November fans and new Ace Enders fans equally.
