Crowns will be releasing their new rabble-rousing single ‘Parting In The Porch’ on 29th October, the week before the band’s debut album is set to be unleashed on the world. Vocalist / guitarist Bill Jefferson says of the track "It’s a nostalgic letter to my younger self, remembering parties on the beach, chasing the girls.
Really it’s about the realisation that you never actually lose that dangerous innocence."
Finding their raucous sound in a combo of traditional folk music and their own pop-punk youth, Crowns stand apart from the pack.
Rolling out their incendiary live show over the festival season, with appearances at Reading and Leeds, Bestival and a support slot with Blink 182, the band have emerged triumphant, leaving beer-soaked tents and arenas in their wake.
Following on from the boozy, shout-a-long songs that made up their self-titled EP (released March 5th), Crowns are proud to announce the release of their debut album 'Stitches In The Flag’ on November 5th, through their own Ship Wreckords label.
Hailing from Launceston, Cornwall the band relocated to London and entered the legendary RAK Studios for the second time following a UK tour in April.
Wearing their influences on their sleeve, Crowns sound emerges from early years playing in punk bands, and attending St Piran's sessions, where punters sing and play traditional Cornish music to celebrate the country’s patron saint.
The band recorded the 11-track album with Tim Goalen (Mark Ronson, Crowns EP) and Richard Woodcraft (The Vaccines, Arctic Monkeys).
