Johnny The Boy sign with Season Of Mist
Official press release:
Season of Mist is pleased to announce the signing of Johnny The Boy. Consisting of Justin Greaves and Belinda Kordic (Crippled Black Phoenix) and Matt Crawford, the band is gearing up for their debut release via Season of Mist. Musically, Johnny The Boy has combined elements of first and second wave black metal with a touch of crust punk and d-beat.
The band comments: "After years of a successful relationship between Crippled Black Phoenix and Season Of Mist, of course we are psyched to be working with SoM again with our new band, Johnny The Boy. It’s like the best kind of home for a misfit band like us."
Season of Mist CEO Michael Berberian comments on the signing: "When we received the new Crippled Black Phoenix album, I loved the bonus track. But it sounded totally different, not CBP at all. So I called Justin: 'WTF is this! it's cool'... Justin G: 'yeah! Glad you like it! We're thinking of doing a whole album like this'... 'I'll sign it'... And there it was, here is Johnny the Boy, the extreme metal outlet from the mastermind behind CBP, Iron Monkey, etc. You know it's going to be interesting."
