Austrian rockers Cornerstone take to the Iron Road

Evesham Editorial 19th Jul, 2018   0

AUSTRIAN rockers Cornerstone will bring their 43 date European tour to Evesham’s Iron Road this Saturday.

The band, composed of Alina Peter (Vocals, Guitar), Michael Wachelhofer (Bass, Keyboard, Vocals), Steve Wachelhofer (Guitar, Vocals) and Christoph Karas (Drums, Percussion), got signed by the US-based label ATOM Records back in 2008 and have done numerous tours through Europe and America.

Cornerstone was able to do a mixture of headlining club shows and shared larger stages with acts such as The Animals, John Waite (Bad English, The Babys), New Model Army, and American singer/songwriter Jeffrey Gaines, to name a few.

Cornerstone won the “Next Big Thing Contest“, hosted by Alternative Addiction, in March 2008 and fans have been attracted to the band‘s blend of 80‘s rock, mixed with the harder edge of today‘s alternative rock sounds.

After the release of the debut album “Head Over Heels“ in fall 2008, reviews and interviews with the band were published in magazines like Powerplay, Fireworks and Classic Rock Magazine. Some of their songs were included in the motion-picture soundtrack for the film “Little Alien“, which was shown in cinema back in fall 2009 and on television.

After they released their sophomore album “Somewhere in America“ in 2011, the band also appeared on numerous UK-Radio programs such as the Steve Price Show and BBC Radio. In the beginning of 2012, their ballade “Right or Wrong” won an award as “Ballad of the Year”, chosen by British Rock Realms Magazine.

In 2013, Cornerstone released their version of the Eighties-hit “Smalltown Boy“ (by Bronski Beat), that appeared in the charts. All the proceeds for this single went to the “Room to Breathe”-campaign, a charity organization for the research and treatment of the immunodeficiency disease cystic fibrosis at the Nottingham City Hospital.

The band is in the process of doing an European tour with 43 concerts in three different countries and have released their second single from the album “Reflections”, which is called “Northern Light”.

Both album and single were produced in Canada with Harry Hess (Billy Talent, Simple Plan, Muse).

Supported by the Black Tree Vultures, Cornerstone will take to the stage at 8pm on Saturday at the Iron Road at 140 High Street.
