Tour Dates and InfoIt's not often that dreams come true, but that is exactly what has happened to Taylor Hood, the mastermind behind US power-pop glam-metallers Crown Jewel Defense, who are set to release their self titled debut album on January 14th 2013 and embark on a string of UK tour dates starting the same day with support from rising UK favourites Octane OK and Swedish rockers Tantrum To Blind.

Crown Jewel Defense January 2013 Tour
dates with Octane Ok + Tantrum To Blind:

Jan 14 – Nottingham – Stealth
Jan 15 – London – The Borderline
Jan 17 – Manchester – NQ Live
Jan 18 – Newcastle – O2 Academy

This childhood musical prodigy and disciple of rock has quickly risen through the ranks of hopefuls, his hard work earning him sold out shows around the world and spots on international tours supporting superstars like All Time Low, The Darkness, Young Guns, and Foxy Shazam.

Under the watchful eye of acclaimed producer Michael "Elvis" Baskette (Falling In Reverse, Escape The Fate, Alter Bridge), the multi-instrumentalist/songwriter has crafted a debut album full of stadium anthems that are almost impossible to define, with such wide appeal that the possibilities for CJD seem almost infinite.

Blending feel-good All American classic rock like Kansas and Journey with the aggression and technical voracity of modern metal titans like Dragonforce, Avenged Sevenfold and Children Of Bodom, CJD throw in a curveball with pop melodies and songwriting sensibilities that normally sit comfortably in the Chart Top 10, creating a sound that is 100% original and 100% Crown Jewel Defense.

The secret to CJD’s success is undoubtedly their spectacular live show, which utilizes the production and entertainment elements of glam metal weaved together with the raw unpolished power of a sweaty rock club show. With a commanding stage presence (think Steven Tyler mixed with the musical prowess of Slash) the live show also sees Taylor joined by a full live band, who expertly shape this one man’s vision into a full band spectacle that simply demands to be seen.
