Nuclear Blast are pleased to announce the signing of Pennsylvanian based band CROBOT for the territory of Europe. Frontman Brandon Yeagley has stated his excitement to sign with the prestigious rock label:
“We're honoured to have Nuclear Blast as the international wind beneath our beards. With bands like GRAVEYARD, SCORPION CHILD, ORCHID, & KADAVAR on their roster, Nuclear Blast Europe is the perfect place for CROBOT to nest." Brandon Yeagley (Vocals)
They’re already whipping up a storm in the US having played SXSW earlier in the year and have toured with the likes of CLUTCH, SCORPION CHILD, TRUCKFIGTHERS and THE SWORD.
In their home territory they released a self-titled 4-track EP in May of this year and quickly gained comparisons with the likes of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and WOLFMOTHER with their penchant for leather, hot sauce and, more vitally, performing a mind-blowing, riff-heavy, sweat-inducing live show. The quartet worked with respected and acclaimed producer Machine (CLUTCH, LAMB OF GOD) on their EP and upcoming album.
Following the release of 2014’s »Something Supernatural«, CROBOT tore up the road back on earth. They’d share bills with the likes of the legendary MOTÖRHEAD, ANTHRAX, VOLBEAT, CLUTCH, THE SWORD, and more in addition to performing at festivals such as Download, Shiprocked, Motörhead's MotörBoat, Rock On The Range, Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Graspop, and Rocklahoma, to name a few. Along the way, they landed coverage from Paste Magazine, Rolling Stone, Yahoo! Music, Revolver, and many others.
The guys would return to Austin in late January 2016 and properly commence work on new tunes. Over the course of 5 or 6 weeks, depending on who you ask, they cut eleven tracks and blew up countless beer cans. They emerged from the studio with »Welcome To Fat City« and everyone’s eyebrows and limbs intact, thankfully. Following recording, they turned to Alan Moulder (FOO FIGHTERS, WOLFMOTHER, ROYAL BLOOD, LED ZEPPELIN, NINE INCH NAILS) for mixing. »Welcome To Fat City« is due for release September 2016.
