Corsons is the outcome from another multi-cultural band that parted by the end of 2008. We had the chance to record 10 basic tracks in the beginning of 2009 in Switzerland and from then until now we have been producing, slowly but steadily, on the album and on the promotion video clip Ice Is Melting Down. Corsons has been quiet when it comes to concerts since 2010 but is now ready to break the silence by launching the new album and hitting the stages soon.
Concerts will be announced on the Corsons Calendar so stay tuned.
