Since playing their first show just 14 months ago, CROWN JEWEL DEFENSE is quickly earning their spot as one of the hottest new bands by touring all over the US, Europe, and UK with The Darkness, All Time Low, Foxy Shazam,and Young Guns, building a rapidly increasing fan base. The band are really excited about embarking on their first UK headline tour and can’t wait to show us how to party!

Here’s what front man Taylor Hood has to say about the upcoming tour

“Getting back to the UK is amazing. Headlining makes it all the more satisfying because we get to play all of our songs and put on the exact show that we want.

We have had a great response from people in the UK. Our fans here are so enthusiastic and supportive which makes every show incredibly exciting. It’s much easier to get on stage covered in glitter and generally make a fool of yourself when large numbers of people are emphatically cheering you on.  Tight spandex, boat loads of glitter and hair raising guitar solos will always give you a good time.”

Noticed as a force to be reckoned with by producer Elvis Baskette (Alter Bridge, Incubus, Escape the Fate, Falling in Reverse), CROWN JEWEL DEFENSE, the brainchild of songwriter, lead guitarist, front man Taylor Hood, was on its way to the studio merely weeks after the first listen.
