American metallers Corners of Sanctuary have released a free digi download pack titled Quarantined Lockdown. The digital download includes the band’s brand new COVID-19 track, We Won’t Back Down (Do or Die) along with demo versions of the songs Victoria and Only One. The download also features an interview with the band conducted by DJ Hellwyck from The Autopsy Report Rock and Metal Show while the band was performing in the UK this past March. The download also includes a special Lockdown Shout Out message from COS. Artwork for the download has also been included.
“We are all experiencing the same things right now,” said COS bassist James Pera. “Everyone is looking for something to take their minds off what is going on. Music is a great distraction.”
The new track We Won’t Back Down (Do or Die) was written and recorded amidst the virus pandemic.
“Everyone has been affected and doing what they can to cope with what’s happening worldwide,” said COS guitarist Mick Michaels. “Being able to write a song and share it is our way of processing those feelings and emotions.”
The Quarantined Lockdown release comes hot on the heels of the band’s latest EP, For COS and Country, which released last month.

COS has also announced their participation in the upcoming artist collaboration project Hear ‘n Now. The band, along with a number of other artists including Patrick Kennison (Lita Ford), Chris Natalini (Blood Feast), Danny Gomez (Gothic Slam) and famed LA producer Bill Metoyer among others, have donated their time and talent on a new song entitled No Road to Ruin, written by Michaels. Presented by Keep it Metal Promotions, the single will be released by Heaven and Hell Records and available as a free download.
“We are really excited to be part of this project,” Michaels commented. “We are honoured to be included with so many great artists.”
The new single looks set to be released mid May. Donations for the project will benefit efforts for the pandemic relief through The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) Global Relief Fund.
