It has been confirmed that bassist Ian Bottle is now back as a full-time Crow and ready to folk/rock in 2017. Ian quotes ''i have enjoyed the recent shows with the band and particularly enjoyed working with our drummer Craig. I am looking forward to recording new material in 2017 and to playing some high profile shows and festivals.'' Gary, Mark and Craig are delighted to have Ian back where he belongs and agree that those bass lines that Ian created on the early Crow material have come back to life during the recent shows.
The band is now setting out plans to rehearse and record new material over the coming weeks with a view to a new album release in the spring of 2017.
