Crown Lands is Doing The “Sun Dance”

Winners of the 2017 97.7 HTZ FM Rocksearch (Past Winners – Finger Eleven, The Glorious Sons, Monster Truck), Crown Lands recently recorded their sophomore EP, entitled Rise Over Run, released September 8th, 2017. Their unique blend of late 70’s prog-rock and early 70’s psych-rock reminiscent of bands like Rush and Led Zeppelin is a must listen for fans of rock n’ roll.


“Blistering guitars, pummelling drums and dramatic manmade growls. Crown Lands aim to bring classic psych-rock into the modern musical landscape, serving up an intoxicating blend of crunch blues-rock riffs and howling vocals” – Exclaim!


Crown Lands possess chemistry on stage that rarely happens. They are known for their dynamic live show and incredibly full sound, owed to their exhaustive multi-tasking. Cody Bowles drums & sings, while Kevin Comeau plays guitar and plays keyboards with his feet.


“If you haven’t heard of Crown Lands, you will” – Alan Cross
