Crippled Black Phoenix have released a stream of their cover of Steve Walsh track Turn To Stone with TeamRock.

It features on the band’s upcoming sixth album Bronze, which will launch on November 4 via Season Of Mist and follows Winning A Losing Battle and No Fun.

On their decision to record a cover version, CBP leader Justin Greaves tells TeamRock: “Crippled Black Phoenix have a history of occasionally recording cover versions, usually as extra tracks or for compilation albums. This time, while recording Bronze, it occurred to me that our version of the classic Joe Walsh song Turn To Stone was worthy of being part of the actual album.

“The original is such a great song and I think it fits with the Crippled Black Phoenix approach to playing good, honest rock music. It got even better as we had the great fortune of having Arvid Jonsson from Greenleaf coming to the studio session in Stockholm to do some wicked guest vocals. His voice fits the songs so well.”

The band will head out on a European tour in December in support of Bronze.
