Crobot have announced they’ll join Volbeat and Anthrax for a nationwide Spring 2015 tour as the very special guest. The spring trek will kick off April 24 in Denver, CO and wrap June 2 in New York City hitting arenas and major clubs throughout North America (all dates below). The tour pre-sale begins this Wednesday, October 29 at 10:00am local time. Visit www.crobotband.com for tickets and more information.

Currently in the midst of their fall U.S. Tour, Crobot have released their new album SOMETHING SUPERNATURAL via Wind-up Records (October 27). The album is available at all retail and streaming outlets, including iTunes, FYE and streaming partners HERE. The group will continue their fall tour before joining Chevelle on December 6 in Columbia, SC for a winter tour wrapping December 20 in Milwaukee.

“The time has come.  It is here.  It gives us great pleasure to lift the veil and officially cut the red tape for the release of ‘Something Supernatural’ on Wind-up records.  The Mothership just received confirmation on landing our biggest tour to date.  We will be honorably opening for the return of the legendary Anthrax and hard rock titans, Volbeat on their U.S./Canadian tour in spring 2015! From Seattle to NYC and everything in between, Beardos unite!”

–Crobot

On SOMETHING SUPERNATURAL, Crobot–whom Revolver praised for “…weaving together the deep grooves of stoner rock with grunge, blues and metal influences” (5/14)–has crafted an album of endless rock hooks, stellar musicianship and lyrical depth.

To perfect their blend of blues, metal and rock and roll, the band–Brandon Yeagley (lead vocals, harmonica), Chris Bishop (guitar, vocals), Jake Figueroa (bass), Paul Figueroa (drums)–worked with the producer Machine (Clutch, Lamb of God, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes) at his Machine Shop studios in Austin. 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).

In other news, Crobot partnered with Double Barley Brewery to create their own official beer, Crobot SupernaturAle. On October 29, the group will celebrate the official release of Crobot SupernaturAle at their show in Raleigh, NC at The Maywood. The group will tap kegs of their new brew and share it with fans at the show. Double Barley Brewery is a family owned craft beer brewery, operating out of Smithfield, NC.

“We loved Crobot the first time we saw them play  and after having them out to the brewery and jamming, we knew we wanted to brew a beer as special and over the top as the band so we came up with ‘Supernaturale’,” explains Larry Lane, Owner/Brewer of Double Barley Brewing.  “We specialize in bold, full flavored, high octane brews so we knew we were the perfect brewery to partner with Crobot and at 11% ABV, this brew is one notch past 10–just like Crobot! The ‘Supernaturale’ is in Imperial Brown Ale, clocking in at 11% ABV with a malty backbone and slight floral notes, it’s way too easy drinking!”

Check out more early critical soundbites for CROBOT:

a lot of riff-heavy groove and funk mixed with a modernized spin.”

GUITAR WORLD (10/1/2014)

“deep grooves of stoner rock with grunge, blues and metal influences.

REVOLVER (9/2014)

“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 MUSIC (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)

The American version of Wolfmother, a Kings of Leon on speed.

CENTRE 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)
