The release of Crown Lands’ upcoming, self-titled debut album—produced by six-time Grammy winner Dave Cobb—marks the arrival of a major new force. Raised in Southwestern Ontario, Comeau (guitar, bass and keys) and Cody Bowles (vocals and drums) bring together a range of influences from folk and blues to psychedelic to prog rock and, drawing on their own intense personal chemistry, create something unique and startlingly fresh.
In 2016, Crown Lands released their first EP, Mantra, and accelerated their relentless touring schedule, which has seen them open for Jack White, Coheed and Cambria, Primus, and Rival Sons.
The group’s name is indicative of their substantial ambitions; “Crown Land” is territorial area belonging to the monarch—or, as Bowles (whose own heritage is half Mi’kmaq, an Indigenous tribe from Nova Scotia) puts it, “Crown Land is stolen land and we are reclaiming it.”
$1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, Ontario.
The Woodland Cultural Centre is a First Nations Educational and Cultural Centre. Located on the grounds of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School, their Save the Evidence campaign is raising money for the restoration of the Residential School and to develop the building into an Interpreted Historic Site and Educational Resource.
