Crown (not to be confused with The Crown) was set to embark on a European tour alongside Agalloch on July 28th, but the band will now be missing several dates. Agalloch comments:
"Due to a last-minute medical situation, Crown has been forced to cancel the first week of the tour. They will be joining us in Colmar, France on the 3rd of August and will continue the tour from there until the end.
"Their replacement will be John Haughm performing a solo piece based on his latest release; 'The Last Place I Remember.' Thus far it has been performed only twice so those in Berlin, Warsaw, Nova Gorica, Brescia, and Zürich will be treated to this rare event, complete with full stage aesthetics and the sonic extremity of Billy Anderson at the soundboard.
"We in Agalloch wish Stephane a quick and full recovery and we look forward to having Crown join us in Colmar." More...

Candlelight Records will be releasing Crown's "Psychurgy" on June 18th, 2013 as part of the label's Cult Series. Candlelight also comments:
"Touching on early Isis, Godflesh, Floor and even Killing Joke, Crown explores the depths of slow tempos through sheer exuberant heaviness.
"The duo’s depth-charging guitars and buried melodic tendencies on latest offering, Psychurgy, snake around hissing electronics, a tribal/military percussive thwack, and the splashing cymbals of a minimal-yet-completely-effective drum-machine.
"Their sound is further emboldened by a massive bestial roar, heavy and oppressive, leading to an abyss of nothingness…. Crown's Psychurgy is dark, spiralng, and obscure and a music trip you won't soon forget."
