‘Fearless’ was announced with the release of the album opener, “Starlifter: Fearless Pt. II” a track Guitar World dubbed as “a jaw-dropping voyage through off-kilter riffs, blockbuster guitar tones and dynamic contrasts that not only parallel the Rush playbook but even go beyond it.”
‘Fearless’ follows Crown Lands’ self-titled debut (2020). It was recorded in 80A Studio at Universal studio in Toronto with producer David Bottrill (Rush, Muse, Tool, Mastodon) and came together over a six-month period, in short, intense bursts between tours. Where the debut record showcased Crown Lands aptitude for raw blues rock, ‘Fearless’ embraces more of the band’s earliest passions in prog-rock.
After performing the song live on tour to eager fans, Juno Award-winning, rock duo Crown Lands – Cody Bowles (vocals and drums) and Kevin Comeau (guitar, bass, and keys)— released their anticipated single, “Lady Of The Lake” through Spinefarm Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
“Lady Of The Lake” dives deeper into the saga Crown Lands introduced with their 18-minute opus, “Starlifter: Fearless Pt. II” released earlier this month. Bowles explains, “Steeped in a myriad of mythology, our song ‘Lady of the Lake’ tells a tale of an ancient battle for control over the realm and a powerful goddess who is called upon to dispel the darkness. This takes place in the same world as Fearless, but long ago.”
