Cast Iron crow "First Edition" (LP) Self Release - November 8, 2011

(Extrait) Mail from ALEX LEE ==> Studio SQ (manager)

I wanted to let you know that Bay Area grunge / stoner rock band Cast Iron Crow have released a new single and video week this week.  Both are in support of their upcoming debut album First Edition  which releases on November 8, 2011.  We've been dying to put out the single, titled Mindlapse, as it has become one of the most popular songs in the band's arsenal (in fact it likely would have been their first single had they not been working on the video).

Below you will find the full release details with links

How does shattering your collar bone twice impact your musical career if you're a guitarist? For most this would be the end. For Jake Navarra, singer of Cast Iron Crow, it was one of the best things that happened to him.
Cast Iron Crow is a four piece grunge / alt metal Bay Area band that channels the sounds of their childhood. When Alice in Chains released their debut record "Facelift" in Aug of 1990, Cast Iron Crow held an average age of less than a year old. However, their early exposure to Grunge has perhaps lent itself to giving their music an effortless authenticity.

The band's sound transports the listener to a time when MTV and the radio airwaves were dominated by the relevant and timeless music that the grunge era provided. Having consumed and digested the best rock music had to offer in the last 20 years, Cast Iron Crow has the benefit of a perspective that allows them to tastefully blend elements of their favorite sub genres of the 90's and on. A cup of Alice in Chains a pinch of Soundgarden a dash of Tool a sprinkle of a Perfect Circle... is that a hint of Motorhead?

To quote Henry Rollins "Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on." After suffering his second broken collar bone in 2009, Jake was forced to quit guitar and thought his musical career might come to an end. Undeterred, he took up singing and was surprised at how naturally it came. Shortly thereafter Jake teamed up with lifelong musical co-conspirators Sam Gouveia (guitar), Joey Evans (bass), Ryan Long (drums) to form Cast Iron Crow.

Out of the gate the band marveled their native East Bay community with a surge of successful shows and by destroying a Bay Area battle of the bands competition. Praise by Tim Sult of "Clutch", Eddie Hernandez of "All Shall Parish", and a mass of new fans further propelled the band to record their debut full length record "First Edition" at legendary San Francisco institution Hyde St. Studios.

So please give it a listen, and buy their album...... (thanks Alex Lee)
