“It’s an incredible time for us as a band. We definitely have the most cohesive lineup we’ve ever had and cliché as it sounds, we are just finishing writing what we feel is our best album. To be on a label like Century Media with the pedigree that it has and the enthusiasm the people behind it have is refreshing as well. It’s a new chapter and in many ways a new beginning for us.”

Hey y’all! If any of you have seen our recent shows, you may have noticed some lineup changes. It is true that Jesse and Wes are no longer in the band, but there is zero bad blood. They are both still are dear buddies, and with the ridiculous amount of talent they both possess, we have no doubt that you’ll be hearing from them real soon! That being said, we are extremely excited to welcome Sam Santiago and Ethan Mckenna to Black Crown Initiate. You might know Sam from his work with Gorod, Beyond Creation, Arkhon Infaustus, and others, and he is doing an amazing job beating the tubs for us. Ethan Mckenna is a Reading, Pa based guitar wizard, and he was actually the first guitarist ever asked to join the band when Andy, Nick, and James put Black Crown together in 2012. Things change, grow, and come full circle, and we intend to deliver a killer new album and get back into your beautiful faces as soon as possible. Stay tuned and thanks! -The Böys 📸 @__photi__ #blackcrowninitiate
