Welsh rock juggernauts THOSE DAMN CROWS continue their enviable ascent with the release of empowering new single, ‘Takedown’, included on their forthcoming new album.
A ten-track collection of bona fide, modern rock bangers, ‘Inhale/Exhale‘ is set for release worldwide on February 17th, 2023 via Earache Records. Tiding fans over ‘til the new album is released, ‘Takedown’ is available today on all streaming platforms.
Frontman Shane Greenhall gets personal, confiding, “‘Takedown’ is the feeling you get when someone challenges you.
I’m a very competitive person and have no issue going up against ANYONE… Especially if someone tells me I can’t do something…. WATCH ME! You know the people who big themselves up by knocking down others? The ones who talk like they’ve been there, done that, know everything.
They haven’t lived a day in your shoes though; they don’t know the real you. But “Takedown” isn’t just about the bullshit you hear from others. It’s also about the bullshit you tell yourself everyday too. ‘You’re not good enough’, ‘you can’t do that’ – the constant put downs we tell ourselves.
I used to get caught up in how others saw me and do this to myself… it was a red rag to a bull. I’m always happy to prove people wrong, but these days I can see that coming a mile away and try to avoid it like the plague. Focus on you and what you CAN achieve as you ‘fly and soar’ above the negative, life sucking bullshit!”

THOSE DAMN CROWS have gone from strength to strength since achieving an official UK Top 15 Album with their second record ‘Point Of No Return’ , even winning Bridgend Mayor’s Annual Citizenship Award in recognition of bringing the community together via their popular regular videocast, CrowCast.
In between their main stage slot at Download Festival 2022 and selling out headline shows at the likes of Cardiff Castle, THOSE DAMN CROWS have created a new album that elevates their signature hard-hitting rock to dizzying new heights. ‘Inhale/Exhale’ whips up a storm of atmospheric hard rock that sees Shane‘s trademark rousing lyricism delivered with molten-smooth melodies and ever-passionate emotion, backed by drummer Ronnie Huxford‘s earth-quaking percussion, guitarists Ian “Shiner” Thomas and David Winchurch‘s twin-attack of rampaging riffs and glacial auras, and bassist Lloyd Wood‘s juddering bass thunder.
‘Inhale/Exhale’ was recorded at the picturesque Vada Studios (built within a 13th Century chapel amongst 20 acres of rural Warwickshire) and in the beating heart of their Welsh homeland at Giant Wafer Studios, with producer Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Monster Truck, Bury Tomorrow) and mixer Phil Gornell (Bring Me The Horizon, 5 Seconds Of Summer, You Me At Six) capturing this next evolution of the band.
