Biography

Having scrubbed the decks of Radio 1’s Zane Lowe, Mike Davies and Xfm’s John Kennedy
with their debut single ‘Kissing Gates’ – the good ship Crowns gets ready to set sail again
with their new EP.

The self-titled 6 track EP will be released on their own imprint – ‘Ship Wreckords’, distributed
by PIAS and available on CD and download. Their release date – March 5th 2012 – ties in
with St Piran’s Day, Cornwall’s celebration of their patron saint.

‘Full Swing’ – the EP’s lead track – showcases the best of the Cornish boy’s shanty-esque
folk-punk racket, crashing mercilessly from verse to chorus and leaving little room to catch
your breath. Elsewhere the anthemic, shout-a-long ‘She Swears Like a Sailor’ is one for the
ladies. That is – if the ladies are foul-mouthed and can ‘drink you under the table’. True to
form, Crowns rabble-rousing originals sit side-by-side with traditional Cornish tune ‘Bodmin
Town’ – which has been dragged up from the old cobbled streets right into the 21st Century.

Continuing to strengthen their reputation as a formidable live act, Crowns ended 2011
supporting The King Blues on their November UK tour. As for 2012 – a series of headline
shows in London and the South-West precede the release of the EP – before they head out
on a 12 date UK tour supporting hotly-tipped punks SHARKS this spring.
