CORNERSTONE Part Ways With Japanese Record Label

CORNERSTONE, the project featuring ROYAL HUNT bassist Steen Mogensen and ex-RAINBOW/current YNGWIE MALMSTEEN vocalist Doogie White, have parted ways with their Japanese record label, Marquee/Avalon. They are in talks with several other companies in the hope that their recently completed third album, "Once Upon Our Yesterdays", will get a Japanese release.

Says Doogie, "We had discussions with the label in the hope that they would promote the new CD with more enthusiasm than was evident on the previous album, 'Human Stain'. The record company felt that the new album should be promoted/marketed in a similar fashion. We were unhappy with this, and it was mutually decided that we would be released forthwith so we could pursue other options. Naturally we are disappointed for our many fans in Japan, but rest assured that we are working hard to secure a release in the near future.

"As consolation to the Japanese fans, we will be issuing 'Once Upon Our Yesterdays' with a special *BONUS* track, 'Walk With Me', especially for them."

"Once Upon Our Yesterdays" is due for release in Europe on November 17 through Massacre Records.

Joining White and Mogensen on the new album are returning members Kasper Damgaard on guitar and Allen Sorensen on drums. Guesting on keyboards are Rune Brink and ROYAL HUNT's Andre Andersen.
