The Crown - Johan Lindstrand Rejoins The Band

Swedish metallers The Crown have issued the following update:

"We have an announcement to make, Johan Lindstrand has re-joined The Crown, this means that the original line-up is now ready to kill once again!

The Crown line-up, September 2011:

Johan Lindstrand - Vocals
Magnus Olsfelt - Bass
Marko Tervonen - Rhythm Guitars
Janne Saarenpää - Drums
Marcus Sunesson - Lead Guitars

We would like to thank our metal-brother Jonas Stålhammar for the amazing team-work for the last couple of years! Respect! Next week we'll start rehearsing new material (6 - 7 news songs written at this point). We hope to enter the studio early 2012. We are thinking of doing a few Swedish dates within a couple of months (most likely a first reunion show in our hometown Trollhättan, this time in a proper club) and then focus on doing some kick-ass festivals in 2012."

The Crown - Sign With Century Media Records

Swedish Death Metallers The Crown have signed a worldwide deal with Century Media Records.

Guitarist Marko Tervonen comments: "We are happy as hell to turn a new page in The Crown's history book...and to pick up the journey with Century Media Records supporting us feels great. We can't wait to unleash Doomsday King upon you all!"

Jens Prueter (Head of A+R, Century Media Europe) adds: "Some of the very early Century Media signings have been Unleashed, Grave, Tiamat, Asphyx, Morgoth - the glory days of the first Death Metal wave. We are still in love with Death Metal and are more than proud to announce the signing of Swedish Death Metal legends The Crown. They haven't lost any aggression since the early 90's and are still a guarantee for some Death Metal Holocaust! In case of doubt, go to one of the summer festivals and hear some new songs live before the album's fall release. We will be there as well. Cheers!"

The Crown - Split Up!

Drummer Janne Saarenpää has posted the following sad news:

"We give up.

Today, the 7th of March 2004, we, the dudes of The Crown, have decided to call it quits. I'm sure every member in the band can still come up with 10 reasons for continuing and 10 reasons for giving up, but after some heavy consideration we have decided to finally find out what life is like without playing in The Crown.

It's been a blast writing/performing together all these years, taking this band to levels that we never even knew of. Also getting to know other people in other bands on the road has been amazing. Seeing new places and getting to see and hear new, great bands has totally blown us away - we sure had our share of fun!

The Crown

THE CROWN have issued the following band update via their official website (www.thecrownonline.com):

"We´re back home again! The European tour went well. We had a blast. Considering that the posters for this tour (mysteriously?) never turned up, the shows were good anyway. I was glad to see how many people follow the tour dates on the website, thanx!!!.

One bad thing that happened on this tour was that we needed to cancel the Paris show. Well, WE didn´t cancel it, it was the local promoters decision, so it was totally beyond our control. Definitely a shame, we were looking forward to Paris and spend our day off there. But then again, TWO days off in Amsterdam was all good.
