CROBOT–whom Revolver praised as “…weaving together the deep grooves of stoner rock with grunge, blues and metal influences” (5/14)–has crafted an album of endless rock hooks on SOMETHING SUPERNATURAL. To perfect their blend of funk, blues, metal and rock and roll, the band worked with the producer Machine (Clutch, Lamb of God, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes) at his Machine Shop studios in Austin. The same team worked on CROBOT’s self-titled spring 2014 EP (LISTEN HERE).

First single and good-time anthem “Nowhere To Hide” cracked the Top 20 at radio, peaking at #15 with major market support including SiriusXM Octane, WIIL Chicago, WRIF Detroit, KISW Seattle, KXXR Minneapolis, WIYY Baltimore, WJRR Orlando and WFTK Cincinnati, among others. Watch the video for “Nowhere To Hide” (HERE).

CROBOTBRANDON YEAGLEY (lead vocals, harmonica), CHRIS BISHOP (guitar, vocals), JAKE FIGUEROA (bass), PAUL FIGUEROA (drums)–spent the past few years honing their live show and garnering a devoted following from their bombastic U.S. performances at festivals and club shows.  After more high-profile tours with Clutch, The Sword, Truckfighters, Kyng and Kill Devil Hill, 2014 and 2015 promise to be the biggest for CROBOT yet, with a Top 20 song at radio, a new album full of hooks and intelligent songwriting, intense live performances and their unique brand of humor.

Check out more early critical soundbites for CROBOT:

“one of the dirtiest, grooviest discs you’ll hear all year.”

LOUDWIRE (5/12/14)

“Rock fans around the planet can likely agree on one thing: There is a sad shortage of good old-fashioned, straightforward guitar riffs on the planet these days. Never fear, however: Pennsylvania band Crobot is out to remedy that with its blend of funk, blues, metal and rock and roll, which its rapidly growing fanbase is comparing to such classic hook-builders as Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age.”

–Wendy Geller, YAHOO! (8/12/14)

“What would happen if the Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Queens of the Stone Age and everything you love about 70’s metal had a love child? Well they did and its name is Crobot. With a stage performance that is wild, brutal and sexy all at once, they’re poised to take as a band that can crossover into many genres and find fans among many musical tastes.”

–Alan Welding, PITTSBURGH MUSIC MAGAZINE (5/20/14)

“The love child of Josh Homme and Russell Brand, CROBOT crushed their debut at Rock On The Range. Vocalist Brandon Yeagley moved like a man possessed to the heavy bass lines of Jake Figueroa.”

–Daniel DeSlover, EXAMINER, (5/20/14)

CENTER DAILY TIMES  (daily paper. State College, PA, 2/14/14

“…for fans of Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age.” 

–Jeff Miers, BUFFALO NEWS (5/14/14)

Crobot embodies the old school mentality of leaving every ounce of energy on the stage in order to mesmerize the audience. Stirring together the finest riff rattling chord progressions of Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith with the rhythmic funk of Stevie Wonder and 90s heaviness of Rage Against The Machine, Crobot performed in front of a small New York City crowd as if they were Queen headlining Wembley Stadium. On stage, the band’s passionate delivery flooded onto the audience leaving many with gleaming eyes in awe of what they just witnessed. CROBOT’s ability to merge the bombastic thrills of past and present rock music demonstrated something euphoric and transcendent that is desperately lacking in music nowadays.”

–Anthony Toto, BAEBLE MUSIC (5/8/14
