Crown The Empire’s Brandon Hoover previously revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 and now he has offered an update on his condition. The guitarist said the following:
“Yo, what’s up, everybody. As a lot of you may know, I tested positive for the coronavirus about two weeks ago. I’ve been talking to the Los Angeles Public Health Department every day, and a couple of days ago, they told me that I’m officially clear. So I have no symptoms, I’m healthy and I’m back to normal. I wanna thank everybody who reached out, showed love and support. It really did mean a lot.”

It’s also worth noting that the documentary’s soundtrack was released today (March 27).

Holding Absence have premiered a new video for their new song “Gravity.“ This track and another new song titled “Birdcage” will be released as a limited edition 7″ picture disc on April 17.
Lucas Woodland commented:
“We’re ecstatic to be releasing ‘Gravity‘ today – We feel like it’s a real step forward in maturity and quality for our band! The song was originally going to be put on our sophomore album but, after our VISA’s got denied and our US tour got cancelled, we decided we should make the best of a bad situation and work towards getting it out as soon as possible.
We’re always trying our best as a band to release music as often and unconventionally as possible, so putting out another Double-A single release is something we’re super excited about, and we can’t wait to show people the second track ‘Birdcage‘ in the coming weeks.”
