About this album

The Mother, the Mechanic, and the Path is The Early November’s second full-length album. The triple disc concept album was released on July 11, 2006 via Drive-Thru Records.

The recording of the album began on February 28, 2005 and took over a year until its completion due to the nature of a triple disc record, stress, Enders changing the concept of the story several times mid-record, and ultimately the lack of focus which led to a mid-recording nervous breakdown. This forced the album’s release to be postponed from its original June 2005 street date to July 2006. The third disc, The Path, which was written by Enders and Jeff Kummer, and co-produced by Enders, was turned down seven times by Drive-Thru Records for quality control, although the label still were not totally satisfied with the results, before finally being approved.

Ace Enders also did the artwork for The Mother, the Mechanic and the Path, drawing up a father in a mechanics uniform named Matt, a mother and a son named Dean, for the cover and booklet.

The album is broken down into three chapters:

* The Mechanic – the proclaimed “rock” disc of the album, showcasing the heavier side of the band. According to singer/guitarist Ace Enders, The Mechanic is the group’s “safe bet”, the album they would have made if it had only been one disc. It represents the technical progression from its predecessor The Room’s Too Cold (2003), hence the title.
