EXCLUSIVE: Coronas name new album

In an interview today at the Hot Press Signing Tent, The Coronas revealed details of their new album, which they just finalised the name for.

The new record will be called Tony Was An Ex-Con (we're sure there's a story behind that!) and will hit the shelves on September 25.

Talking to Dez Ryan, the Coronas lad said they'd just decided on the name of the record today, and only finalised the track listing yesterday!

They said they were 'thrilled' with the Heroes or Ghosts follow-up, which takes them in a 'brilliant new direction'.

Check out the full interview, which will be up on hotpress.com in the coming weeks.
