In the last weeks we got much time together to think about us as a band and about what happens next. And finally we can say we have some new ideas about changes, new music, lyrics and all that. At the moment we’re writing new stuff to release a full length. We don’t know how much time it will take. But at first we totally want to concentrate on new songs and the changes we made. That means we won’t play any show until september.  The next dates are: 01.09 Leipzig /w No Omega, Continents.https://www.facebook.com/events/511658798883409/?fref=ts 14.09 This Is Chemnitz @AJZ /w Remover, Vengeance Today and much morehttps://www.facebook.com/events/312169508886065/?fref=ts If you want to book us for the rest of the year, feel free to contact us at crownsandthieves@gmx.de or via Facebook.

Review “the half-dream hologram” //by backtothepoint.de

A big Thanks to Gregor of BackToThePoint for this amazing review!

Please visit the Page: www.backtothepoint.de

"Wow, this is incredible! And, to be honest, “The half-dream hologram” is actually too amazing to really believe that it’s the first release ever by Crowns & Thieves. This young german band manages it to play modern hardcore without sounding like loads of other bands of this genre – even better: By mixing the typical modern hardcore with many screamo influences they almost created a new style, an own style.

Starting with slow and melancholic melodies, the first song “Aerodrome” is a pretty good preview for what follows; emotional tunes and mostly depressive lyrics create a wonderful, kind of depressive atmosphere on the entire record. While the next two songs, “Waifs and strays” as well as “Author”, are more or less typical for this genre, the fourth song called “Somewhere down the road” is the real highlight of this record. Starting with calm guitars and even a piano, this song shows the real quality of the four boys. By the way, the band recorded a music video for exactly this song – definitely a good choice! Afterwards, the album finds a great ending in the last two songs called “The old town waves” and “Crown me”, which are both full of great melodies and desparate vocals again.

To summarize it, this is one of the best records in a while. An impressive atmosphere, great melodies and deep lyrics - “The half-dream hologram” implies it all. Probably no one expected such a great debut LP, this is just amazing!”
