Music men: Crown the Guilty will perform Friday

It’s time to turn up the dials a bit with some original Salmon Arm alternative rock.

New up-and-coming alternative band, Crown The Guilty, will be celebrating the release of their premier EP, As Far As We Make It on June 5 at the Blue Canoe Bakery Café.

Not only does this show mark the release of Crown The Guilty’s first EP, it also marks the one-year anniversary of the current formation of the band.

Since last year, the band has shifted gears from playing primarily pop-punk covers to playing almost exclusively original music, with a new alternative sound.

“With the EP, we feel we’ve found our own unique sound in the genre of alt-rock,” says founder and front man, Ken Kosowick. “We are super excited to share this new sound.”

The band attributes their sound to the diversity of their backgrounds and influences in music – these ranging from Miles Davis to Billy Talent.

The evening will also feature Vernon indie alternative band, Amistad.

Amistad has become known for their atmospheric sound and willingness to leave it all on the stage every time they perform, says Kosowick.

He says although Crown The Guilty has yet to play with Amistad, band members are very “stoked” on the idea and encourage everyone to check out their album, LEE, on Facebook before the concert.

Kosowick says the band has received generous support; several local businesses have jumped in to help make Friday’s show possible.

The Blue Canoe Bakery Café has opened up their doors to house the event, and Acorn Music has provided all the sound and lighting equipment necessary to make it possible.

Doors open on the release party at 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the Blue Canoe for $10 and include one drink.

For more information on the band check out Crown The Guilty on Facebook.
