The future of rock ‘n’ roll is in excellent hands. Crobot are here from outer space to save our world’s music landscape from bullshit songs and disposable heroes. The band is currently on a brief headlining run in support of their recently announced major label debut LP that is poised to take the stereo systems by storm. The album Something Supernatural invades record stores on October 28 via Wind-Up Records. I caught up with the band at the legendary Boneyard in Atlantic City, NJ to discuss the album, their upcoming UK tour with labelmates The Virginmarys, and much more. The trek kicks of on September 23 at the Coventry Kasbah in Coventry, UK and wraps up a few days later in Manchester at The Ritz on September 27. The band’s upcoming album is one of the most anticipated rock records of the year, and is featured in TheRockRevival.com’s Fall Album Preview.
Over the winter, Crobot unleashed their EP, Legend of The Spaceborne Killer which was the band’s first release since inking a deal with Wind-up Records. Crobot have been working on their new music with renowned producer Machine (Lamb of God, Clutch, Gym Class Heroes, Cobra Starship), who also produced the EP. In the spring, the band will toured relentlessly, including a stint with Kyng and Kill Devil Hill and a stop at Rock On The Range on Saturday, May 17 in Columbus, OH. Crobot are staying on their tour grind, as they always do. At the end of summer, the band played with Skid Row in New Jersey at the Starland Ballroom, and back-to-back headlining shows at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA. Upon returning from their maiden voyage to the UK, Crobot will be playing at Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville, KY alongside Judas Priest, Korn, Alter Bridge, Limp Bizkit, and many more in October.
Crobot are a riffy and relentless hard rock outfit from Pottsville, PA. Since their inception in 2011, the band has drawn comparisons to the likes of Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, Clutch, Queens of The Stone Age, Wolfmother, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Audioslave, and many more. With jackhammer guitar riffs and soaring vocals, the band’s explosive live shows have captivated audiences large and small around the country. They released their debut album, The Legend of The Spaceborne Killer, in 2012 and it was one of the best rock album’s of the year. In November 2013, the band inked a deal with Wind-up Records. Back in January 2014, the band toured the Northeast with idols Clutch and The Sword. – by Matt Bishop
