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."

Johan Lindstrand commented: "Hi there all amazing The Crown fans out there. Once again I have been blessed with the opportunity to join my oldest friends and brothers in arms Marko, Janne, Magnus and Markus. I'm am so grateful for this and I will do my best to make the original lineup live up to all expectations and we will definitely have a total blast together while rippin´ the world to pieces with a lot more years to come. Yeah, from now on I am the lead singer in this classic death metal outfit called The Crown. Damn! That feels good to say. I will also take some time here to thank Jonas Stålhammar 'cause he did an amazing job on Doomsday King. You rule dude! Other than that I have to say: The original 5 has returned! Go hide your children."

Jonas Stålhammar commented: "Come in Number 51, your time is up! It's fitting quoting the classic Pink Floyd song right about now. My time with The Crown comes to an end with the return of the true voice of The Crown, Johan Lindstrand. It's been a bumpy but really enjoyable ride for me being a member of The Crown. It's with great respect I step down to let Johan take his rightful place in the band again. I wish them all the best and they are truly my brothers still."

A staff guy...
Agreed Troll. Can't wait to hear this. I wonder if he's going to continue One Man Army or lay that to rest and focus on The Crown full time...

I liked Jonas... hopefully Johan's inclusion won't lead to the band imploding and splitting again...

My thoughts exactly.
All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu... This is the truth! This is my belief! ...At least for now.
