Claim The Throne Announces New Lineup and CD

Claim The Throne has issued the following update regarding their new CD and lineup:

"After a four month break from the live scene, we are back to pillage your browns and celebrate a wictorious year with the release of our third CD, TRIUMPH AND BEYOND. It has been a massive year for us, having the priveledge of playing tons of great local shows as well as our first national tour, and we are extremely proud of our hard work on the new album and can't wait to share it with you! Furthermore, got some news for ya..."

"It brings us much sadness to announce the departure of founding member, guitarist and author Oliver Soos aka Havanti. Oli?s pleasant nature and hilarious ideas helped to form the personality of Claim The Throne, and this will continue to flow in dedication to him. Oli leaves us to return to live in Slovakia, best of luck our friend!"

"The replacement for Oli is no stranger to the Claim The Throne ranks, he has filled in for us before, but now we welcome Glenn Dyson (Choke, Cuntscrape, Pathogen) as a permanent guitarist in the band and look forward to the rawkus times ahead! He will begin with us in the new year, so until then we have the very talented Owen Thomas (Dyscord) lending his skills for a few shows, he played at Bastardfest with us last week and rocks the f*k.""
