CORNERSTONE, the Danish/British melodic metal band featuring YNGWIE MALMSTEEN/ex-RAINBOW frontman Doogie White and ex-ROYAL HUNT bassist Steen Mogensen, has issued the following update:
"Once again we want to thank you for your continued support, patience and good humour. The lack of information about what the band is doing is because until recently we were not sure what we were doing. The reasons are legion, many that are not for anyone but those concerned. We have not lost interest in what we do and everyone in the band is still keen to continue on the rocky course that we have set ourselves on.
"I [Doogie] had a long chat with Steen and he sent me a couple of ideas he had. Unfortunately, they were rubbish and I sent him back to redo everything. Ah!!! But I lie, my dear friends. The ideas were...glorious. Raw, but dangerous and glorious.
"The great, great masterplan is that everybody will contribute in the songwriting process this time around, throw all of their killer ideas in the pond and produce another outstanding CORNERSTONE album.
"It's difficult to say how the next year will pan out for the band. But we feel that we can have a new album in the next 12 months or so."
CORNERSTONE's latest CD, entitled "Two Tales and One Tomorrow", was released in Europe in February 2007 via Massacre Records. A live album, "Cornerstone In Concert", was released in July 2005 in Japan via Yamaha Communications and in Europe through Massacre Records. The CD was recorded at several shows on the group's debut tour of Europe in January/Febuary 2005. Included in the package is a video clip of live and backstage footage from the band's private archives.
