When everything was recorded, Pelle started the mixing process. Since he has a very clear vision of how he wants the album to sound, he tries to use the final drum sounds already at the pre-production stage, just to get the right feel for the songs. That way the mixing also gets a head start with the sound already being “set”. This time we went for a bit more guitars and a slightly heavier edge, also there were intentionally no ballads on the album this time. For the guitar sound the inspiration came from TNT’s 'Intuition' album, while John Mutt Lange’s spirit of course hovers over the overall production. The big choruses and distinctive melodies were something we put a lot of work into. We always want songs with a simple rhythmic chant like “Rawk ‘n Roll Hysteria” (of course the Def Leppard pun was very intended) or “Face It”, but also more melodic choruses like “I Would Be The Wind” or “Love Shouldn’t Hurt”. Lyrically, the songs may seem shallow when reading the titles, but many of them deal with a break-up Pelle was going through, and finding new love on the other side.

“Theatrical Glam Rockers entangled in a Rock ’N Roll Love Affair”
Following the success of their acclaimed 2018 album ‘Invincible’, which spent an incredible ten consecutive weeks in the Top 30 Official German Rock and Metal Charts and was voted Sleaze’s Nation’s # 2 album of 2018, Australian based Theatrical Glam Rock Warriors, CROSSON, return in 2020 with their new album Rock ‘N Roll Love Affair.
About "Rock N Roll Love Affair"
The album was once again mixed by legendary U.S producer Duane Baron (Ozzy Osbourne, Motley Crue, Alice Cooper, Poison), mastered by U.S mastering legend Dave Donnelly (Aerosmith, KISS, Whitesnake) , and engineered by Aussie veteran Russell Pilling (The Vines, Hoodoo Gurus)
Rock ‘N Roll Love Affair punches you in the face from the opening chords and erupts with ten infectiously catchy, highly addictive rock tunes. The only cure to get these songs out of your head will need to be medically prescribed.
The album also includes electrifying performances by some of Australia’s leading rock / metal musicians, including Stu Marshall (Death Dealer) and Dario Bortolin (Baby Animals).
Since is European release, Rock ‘N Roll Love affair has received great reviews “10/10” (Metal Temple ) , “5/5” (Battle Helm), “9/10” (Metal Only), “4.5/5” (Strombring.at)
“Rock ‘N Roll Love Affair is 10 kick ass tracks” (Battle Helm March 2020)
The first video from the album ‘Everyone’s A Star’ depicts CROSSON doing what they do best…..unleashing their electrifying, energetic, choreographed and bombastic stage show. The second video ‘Weak At The Knees (For A Hot Brunette!!)’ (a crowd favourite) shows the groups tongue-in-cheek side.
When asked about ‘Weak At The Knees (For A Hot Brunette!!) vocalist , writer and producer Jason Crosson commented “There are too many songs about blondes. Its about time the brunettes around the world were celebrated……. Talk about art imitating life! I have two weaknesses, chocolate ice cream and beautiful brunettes… of which I have to refrain from both!!”
Rock N Roll Love Affair comes crashing from the stratosphere on April 2020!!

If Spreading the Rock n Roll Disease sparked people’s attention, Invincible will have them jumping aboard the CROSSON rebel train.
“Invincible is ten tracks of fist in the air rock n roll anthems.” (Josh Smith - Hair Band Heaven)
The opening track Rock Warriors is an anthemic tribute to all the metal / rock bands and artists who laid the foundations for the genre and kept it alive and kicking for decades, whilst the first single Never Give Up is an inspirational and ‘catchy as Chlamydia’ track with a strong 80’s Bon Jovi vibe that would even make Desmond Child tap his feet.
The album’s only ballad Unconditional Love is a duet with renowned Finnish singer / actress Jessica Wolff, with the music video shot in Sydney and Croatia by award winning feature film and music video director Steve Ravic (Doro, Manowar, Rhapsody).
