A lot of things have happened since the new year began.
The new album "Death Is Not Dead" is out since January 12th and is very well received worldwide. It was out even sooner in Japan, already in December over there. New songs are working really good live and we got good proof of that during our minitour in Japan this April. It was totally amazing.
We are also very proud to announce that Henrik Axelsson is a new permanent member of The Crown. Some of you might know him from Implode and some might know him from the bonustracks he did on Death Is Not Dead. Both he and us feel really good about this and we're very confident that we will work great together from this moment and beyond.
Sorry for the lack of updates but from now on there will be news on regular basis here.
Thanks for supporting The Crown. Cheers! /Johan, Marko,Magnus, Robin and Henrik
THE CROWN's new single/7", Headhunter, has been released today! To purchase Headhunter, please visit iTunes for a digital copy or CM Distro for the black or limited transparent-orange 7".
THE CROWN has also launched their new video clip for "Headhunter", which can be viewed here.
The title track has been taken from THE CROWN's upcoming album, Death Is Not Dead, which will be released via Century Media Records in January 2015.
So, what´s new in The Crown camp? Well, In just a few months we are celebrating our 25th anniversary in the name of death metal.
Can you believe it? 25 years filled with blood, sweat and tears and one hell of a pile of good albums to be really proud of.
But this celebration is not only to look back and be nostalgic.
It´s also to embrace the very bright future of this band. We feel great at the moment and we will make 2015 the best year so far.
Do you wanna join the ride?, well, then don´t hesitate to continue to read.
We know that a lot of you folks out there have waited and waited for some new shit but guess what!?, the wait is over.
For the past two years we have worked really hard writing and recording our new album "Death Is Not Dead"
and it´s finally ready to be unleashed upon mankind January 12:th 2015.

And now to some sad news. Unfortunately we are one man short at the moment.
Janne Saarenpää decided to focus on other things for a time not specified.
We truly respect his wishes and support him on his new adventures.
Although there will always be an open spot for him in this band, so if he decides to come back he is more than welcome.
So we wish him good luck for the future and would like to thank him for everything in the past.
To our death metal brother Janne "The Terminator" Saarenpää. Kippis!!
A statement from Janne.
Our livesituation will therefore look a bit different but we have that covered already. More info on that when time comes.
We WILL kick ass!!! Don`t worry.
So once again, enjoy your stay and thanks for supporting The Crown.
