Background and recording

It was announced by the band's label, Rise Records, that they would be going into a studio in Michigan on January 3, 2014, with Joey Sturgis producing the album.[2] Later the next month, the band released a teaser for a new song to be featured on the album.[3] The same month they released a statement revealing that they had completed recording drums and were continuing with the other instruments, and also that producer Dan Korneff will also be aiding in the band's production.[4]

The album was officially announced on June 18 by the band and was given the title The Resistance: Rise of The Runaways, a release date of July 22 and its artwork was also released. The announcement was made on the official YouTube channel of Rise Records with a teaser trailer, which, along with the title, release date and artwork, also contained a teaser for a track from the upcoming album.[5] Two days later, the first single and second track "Initiation" was released.[citation needed]

After the album's release, the band supported metalcore band Asking Alexandria in the UK throughout October and November.[6]

The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways was welcomed with positive reception by critics. Review aggregate Metacritic gave the album an 82 out of 100 based on 4 professional reviews, citing "universal acclaim." In a four-and-a-half star review from Alternative Press, Phil Freeman averring, "Crown The Empire have stepped up in a big way, with every aspect of The Resistance: Rise Of The Runaways coming across bigger, harder and just more than their full-length debut".[8] Rob Sayce at Rock Sound says "Talk about impeccable timing. In its propensity for Hollywood-style melodrama and barrage of arena-friendly hooks, Crown The Empire’s second album is both relentlessly on trend and yet relatively individual, succeeding where previous effort ‘The Fallout’ so often faltered", bestowing a seven out of ten upon the work.[15] In a three-and-a-half star review from AllMusic, Gregory Heaney claiming, "Crown the Empire widen their dynamic range with the simultaneously soaring and punishing... In fact, this theatricality is easily the album's most engaging feature, making The Resistance: Rise of the Runaway a unique offering in an otherwise dull post-hardcore landscape."[7]

Lais Martins Waring for Big Cheese believing "'The Resistance' probably won't change any lives, but Crown the Empire should be proud of their second album, because it's pretty damn enjoyable. They're onto a good thing here. Keep an eye on them", bequeathing the project a seven out of ten.[9] In a nine out of ten review for Outburn, Brooke Daly tells "The highlight of The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways is the musicianship... The album sounds progressive while maintaining their core sound. They have honed it, creating a thrilling album in the process."[14] Nathaniel Lay of New Noise Magazine remarks "Rise of the Runaways is a bit more deliberate and elaborate in design... an album of fair size, and therefore offers plenty of content... The Resistance is also certainly a worthy release for its scene. Crown the Empire are most definitely talented musicians, and they could be onto something here. Maybe in an album or two, they’ll become unstoppable", conferring a four star rating upon the project.[13] Thomas Doyle of Kerrang! gave the album four K's out of a possible five, praising the concept album for not trying to be too clever and resulting in overblown monstrosities, and goes on to say that it feels energised and packed with the energy and spirit of metalcore music with an added narrative.[11]

In an eight out of ten review for Mind Equals Blown, Emma Guido underscoring, "From what it looks like, The Resistance has proved that they are capable of creating a storm, or rather a rebellion, in the music scene. They have a unique style, incredible talent, and a faithful fan base, making this breakthrough band the next big thing."[12] Matthew Sievers articulates how "'The Resistance' is another staple in this band’s already blazing career that will push them so far into the limelight, they’ll be rubbing their eyes in disbelief", giving the project four and a half stars. In an eight out of ten review at Bring the Noise, Matt Borucki ascertaining "The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways is more mature and more sophisticated, yet still holds the youthful glow that turned heads in the first place."[10]
