Crobot

Crobot Releases Self-Titled EP May 13, On Tour With Kyng And Kill Devil Hill

Central Pennsylvania band Crobot will release their self-titled four-song EP on Wind-up Records May 13, 2014. Tracks include “Legend of the Spaceborne Killer,” “Nowhere to Hide,” “La Mano de Lucifer” and “Skull of Geronimo” and were produced by famed producer Machine (Clutch, Lamb of God, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes).  Machine and the band are finishing up their debut album which will be released later this year.  “Legend of the Spaceborne Killer” will be available April 1 for download and streaming but fans can go to crobotband.com now and unlock #TheLegend to get a free version of the song.  “Nowhere to Hide” is going to rock radio on Cinco de Mayo - May 5.

So who the f**k is Crobot?

The band embodies a mixture of groove-heavy riff-rock that will want to make you bang your head and shake your ass.  Think of them as Wolfmother’s American cousins who smell like leather (they make leather-scented air fresheners!) and whose music scorches your ears like hot sauce to the taste (yes, they even have their own hot sauce!).   You can't help but feel that you are taken into another dimension and back again with the songs of Crobot.  The press have been quick to praise their live shows as The Buffalo News says “…a set described by one concert-goer as ‘the nastiest groove-metal I’ve heard this side of Soundgarden.’ High praise, and well-deserved. This is clearly a band to watch for fans of the aforementioned Soundgarden, as well as Wolfmother and Queens of the Stone Age.”  Hardrock Nights says of singer Brandon Yeagley, “Watching him is exhausting, and I honestly have no idea how his head hasn’t ripped off of his shoulders. I don’t know what else to tell you except that Crobot is just killer.”

You can get to know the band better through their insightful new series, Crobot TV here and by watching their entertaining EPK here.

Crobot will be on tour in select cities across the United States in 2014 doing solo shows, touring with Kyng and Kill Devil Hill and at Rock on the Range (dates below).  More dates will be announced soon.

Crobot is Brandon Yeagley (Lead Vocals, Harmonica), Chris Bishop (Guitar, Vocals), Jake Figuroa (Bass) and Paul Figuroa (Drums).
