Singer/songwriter/producer Jean Beauvoir (CROWN OF THORNS, PLASMATICS) was interviewed by host Victor M. Ruiz for the latest episode of the "Mars Attacks" podcast. Beauvoir talked about why he decided to put CROWN OF THORNS back together; what it was like to work with such artists as KISS and RAMONES; what he's been up to since the release of the last CROWN OF THORNS album, "Faith"; and how he may or may not have been affected by race relations as a person and a musician. You can now stream the podcast using the audio player below.
CROWN OF THORNS played two special "surprise" shows in New York City earlier this month prior to embarking on a European tour.
CROWN OF THORNS' latest album, "Faith", was released in June 2009 via Little Steven Van Zandt's Lost Cathedral label imprint. The disc brought back the trademark CROWN OF THORNS sound that established the band as a rock powerhouse, still keeping intact all the elements of infectious guitar riffs, soaring hooklines, and great melodies.
Beauvoir collaborated with Bob Clearmountain (BRYAN ADAMS, THE ROLLING STONES, BON JOVI, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E-STREET BAND) in the recording sessions for "Faith" as well as Mark Plati (DAVID BOWIE) for the mix — resulting in the best-sounding CROWN OF THORNS album yet.
