CROWN OF THORNS Hard At Work On New Album

CROWN OF THORNS is currently recording its new album at a Los Angeles studio with producer Bob Clearmountain. Frontman Jean Beauvoir states: "We've been working hard on the record. Tommy Lafferty just flew back to San Francisco today after some days of guitars. I head to L.A. on Thursday and we will be working five days recording drums and bass with Bob Clearmountain in his studio. It's going well!"

The as-yet-untitled CD is due in early 2008 via Frontiers Records.

Formed at the dawn of the '90s by Beauvoir (songwriter for KISS, RAMONES, LIONEL RICHIE, and JOHN WAITE, among others, and former member of PLASMATICS and VOODOO X), Tony Thompson of CHIC and POWERSTATION, Micki Free of SHALAMAR and top session bassist Michael Paige, CROWN OF THORNS quickly became the subject of a fierce major label bidding war.

Fate decreed, however, that the resulting self-titled debut album — due to the changes in the musical climates and management differences — got released independently only in mid-April 1994 to much critical acclaim. This was promptly followed by a packed out show at London's Marquee Club. With the album receiving rave reviews everywhere, it entered the metal charts a week after release and stayed there for an incredible six months!

In 1995 CROWN OF THORNS was asked by Jon Bon Jovi to be special guests to BON JOVI and VAN HALEN for three months throughout Europe, playing to over a million people. They soon after headed back into the studio for the completion of their album "Breakthrough", released in 1996.

CROWN OF THORNS released another three amazing studio albums — "Lost Cathedral" in 1998, "Destiny Unknown" in 2000 and "Karma" in 2002 — to great acclaim.
