NEW ALBUM WITH STAR PRODUCER ON BOARD!

During the last weeks, it's been a bit quiet around Cornerstone , here are some amazing news: the band is busy at the moment with the recordings for their new album, and HARRY HESS, a Canadian producer, is also involved in this project. Hess, himself singer of Harem Scarem, is mainly known as a producer through its collaboration with BILLY TALENT, SIMPLE PLAN, MUSE, etc.. So, more than one reason to be curious about the new album (working title: "Reflections"). Its release is scheduled for 05/20/2016 - incidentally in 2011, "Somewhere in America" was published on the same date, hopefully a good sign. Also in planning is a European tour, first dates in the UK and Germany are already confirmed and will be announced soon.

CORNERSTONE AT THE EUROVISIONS-SONGCONTEST

Altough the Eurovision-Songcontest, that will happen in Stockholm/ Sweden this year, has lost a bit of its glory over the last years, the band is proud to present, that the Austrian Broadcasting Service (ORF) has choosen the powerballad "Whatever", which is a precusor for the new album, too, is pre-nominated for the Wildcard for the Austrian contribution. It will be decided within the next few days, which artists are nominated, but: in case you want to support Cornerstone, you can leave a like or a comment at the Austrian Songcontest-page on Facebook - the selection process will take a few more days.

radio: in the good old days, MTV would have loved this band."

hooks, excellent material, sounds like the recipe for a hit to me!"
Beau Hill/ Producer (Europe, Alice Cooper, Winger, …) U.S.A.

+++ "...…their heroic AOR anthems speak the sort of language that should
win them a place in your hearts: massive choruses built for radio airplay… "
