Frontiers Records is truly excited to announce the release of the highly anticipated CROWN OF THORNS come back album “Faith” on September 19th 2008.
Releasing their now legendary self titled debut album in April 1994, Crown Of Thorns have steadily become one of the favourite bands of the Melodic Rock resurgence in the late nineties. With amazing albums such as “Breakthrough”, “Lost Cathedral”, “Destiny Unknown and “Karma” and relentless touring that brought them to play in support of Bon Jovi and Van Halen for three months throughout all of Europe, Crown of Thorns remain one of the leading bands of the Melodic Hard Rock genre.
Formed at the dawn of the 90’s by former Plasmatics and songwriter for KISS, Ramones, Lionel Ritchie, John Waite and many others, Jean Beauvoir with Tony Thompson of Chic and The Powerstation, Micki Free of Shalamar and top session bassist Michael Paige, Crown Of Thorns underwent some personnel changes during the early years, with Tommy Lafferty taking place on guitar and Hawk Lopez on drums.
This line-up reconvened during 2007 when Jean Beauvoir connected with Frontiers Records President Serafino Perugino about working on a brand new studio album.
Jean collaborated this time with Bob ClearmountainMark Plati (David Bowie) for the mix, and the result is probably the best sounding CoT album ever! “Faith” is an album that brings back the trademark Crown of Thorns sound as defined in the debut album and “Lost Cathedral”, still keeping intact all the elements of infectious guitar riffs, soaring hooklines and great melodies.
