07102010 is the fifth studio album, and first ever acoustic album, by the American metalcore band, Crown the Empire.[1] It is a compilation of acoustic versions of songs from their previous discography, made to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the post-hardcore band's first show[1][2][3][4] at Compass Church in Colleyville, Texas. It also includes a new track, Everything Breaks,[1][2][3][5][6] which was written during the Sudden Sky album sessions, recorded as a demo at that time, and released by singer Andy Leo in 2018.[1][7] When asked about the inspiration for the acoustic album, the band states that they "wanted to look back and strip down songs across all of [their] albums as a thank you to everyone who has been along for the journey so far."[8][9]

Release and Promotion[edit]

On June 30, 2020, the band announced the upcoming release of a short documentary, Out of Focus (Mini Documentary)[5][10][11][12][13], about the band's journey so far. The documentary was released on July 1, 2020 via the Rise Records YouTube channel.[2][5][11][12][13][14]

The band announced the release of 07102010 on July 8, 2020, just two days prior to its release.[6][15][16] On July 10, 2020 the album was released via Rise Records. It was initially released only for streaming platforms and as a digital download.[4][17][18] On October 9, 2020, the band announced that the album would be released in vinyl format on November 27, 2020 for record store day.[19][20]

On July 15, 2020, the band announced a livestream acoustic performance via Twitch, which took place on Saturday, July 18, 2020 at 5 PM EST.[1][5][21] The performance was posted on YouTube on July 22, 2020.[22] In the performance, eight acoustic tracks (all from the album) were played.

BurnYourEars7/10[7]
Dead Press!6/10[8]

The album was reviewed by the German webzine BurnYourEars on July 10, 2020.[7] It was given a rating of 7/10. The album is described as having a colorful mix of songs and being nostalgic in tone. Although the songs are stripped down from their aggressive metal origins, they're still just as energetic and emotional, and the dark lyrics stand out in the acoustic format. Although the album is described as not seeming superfluous or boring, the bonus track (Everything Breaks) is said to be melancholic but without quite providing the desired climax.

The album was also reviewed by Dead Press! on July 13, 2020.[8] In the review, the album is described as "neutral-toned and awash with maturity" but "alive with a new spirit and indicative of [Crown the Empire]'s fondness of what they have created thus far." The album is praised as being tasteful, delicate, and cozy, and the choice of songs is called meticulous and solemn. The band is described as "thriving in both the depths of metalcore and the crisp vulnerability of acoustic tracks" as "a sign of true versatility." The review, however, cautions that it "brings little new to the table" despite being so pleasing to listen to.
