In 1970, Hunter S. Thompson infamously campaigned to be elected sheriff of Aspen.

He proposed that the snowy locale’s name be changed to »Fat City« in order to, “prevent greedheads, land-rapers and other human jackals from capitalizing on the name Aspen.” He lost the election, but a short 46 years later, his proposed moniker would perfectly suit CROBOT’s second full-length album, »Welcome To Fat City« (Nuclear Blast Records). Stirring up down ‘n’ dirty rock ‘n’ roll, swaggering blues, doomy metal, and strangely sexy funk into a grimy cauldron, the Pennsylvania quartet - Brandon Yeagley (lead vocals, harmonica), Chris Bishop (guitars, vocals), Jake Figueroa (bass), and Paul Figueroa (drums) - make rock music gonzo again by blasting it to outer space...

“As far as the story goes, I thought it might be cool to write about a planet called »Fat City«,” explains Brandon. “It’s a place where all of the sleazeballs of the galaxy can go and be themselves without any regard for morals or anybody else’s well-being. On the last record, a lot of the themes were supernatural and took place on earth. This one goes intergalactic.”

Ultimately, CROBOT carve out their own corner of the galaxy with »Welcome To Fat City«. You might never want to leave either…
