Cornerstone is an Austrian rock band formed in 1998 in Moedling, Lower Austria. The band has gone through several phases, but its strongest success came 2008, when they signed a record deal with US-label ATOM Records and released their debut "Head Over Heels” in the same year. ATOM is working with artists like Jon Butcher and Barefoot Servants in the United States. In March 2008 the band has won the “Next Big Thing Contest,” sponsored by Alternative Addiction, and reached No. 1 on Chungardio (Scottsdale/AZ, U.S.A.) Statesides. In the same year the band toured Austria and UK, where they did a lot of interviews at radio stations, f.e. on ARFM-Radio/London with the legendary Steve Price. In 2009 another UK tour happened, the band appeared at the famous Z Rock Festival, together with Ted Poley and John Waite (Ex-Bad English, Ex-The Babys), and in summer 2009 they did a three weeks USA-tour and appeared on several Radio- and TV-stations. In the spring of 2011, Cornerstone released their sophomore effort "Somewhere in America”, which first pressing sold out within three weeks and did several shows in Austria, the surrounding countries and in the UK, where the band participated in the biggest rock-events of the country, just like the Rock and Bike Fest and the Pop Overthrow Festival in Liverpool. In the beginning of 2012 the song "Right or Wrong" was awarded as "Ballad of the Year" by British Rock Realms Magazine.
