Crobot announce new tour dates | w/ UK punk outfit, The Virginmarys & Aeges

Fresh off the release of their latest single “Not for Sale” – the first sneak peek to their upcoming album, Welcome To Fat City and unveiling a European arena run opening for Volbeat, Crobot today announce US tour dates with UK punk outfit, The Virginmarys and Aeges.


Renowned for their electric live show that has seen them open for Motorhead, Volbeat, Anthrax, Clutch, Black Label Society, Chevelle, and won the hearts of audiences at festivals like Rock on the Range, Sturgis and UK’s Download Festival, the band are delighted to be taking their groove-infused sludge rock back on the road, kicking off in Winchester, going through New Orleans and ending with appearances in Texas.

The band are gearing up to release their highly anticipated return to 2014’s Something Supernatural, which was praised by the likes of Yahoo! Music, Revolver, Billboard, Huffington Post, Drum Magazine, Guitar World, Blabbermouth and was also featured as VH1’s “That Metal Shows” Pick of the Week.

Premiering exclusively on Noisey, the band debuted the first taste of “Welcome To Fat City,” which from start to finish and in true Crobot fashion, doesn’t stop twisting and turning like a hard rock tidal wave. It gives you just enough time to come up for air, only to get pummeled back into the groovy undertow.

Talking to the Noisey team, band frontman Brandon Yaegley noted that, “Not for Sale” takes you into orbit around the sonic spectrum of our latest album and is an anthem for all of us who work hard enough to make our own luck. It’s a cry to hold on to our own humanity, never letting anyone else manipulate our destiny. Who paid your debt to be here? No one…and my soul is not for sale.”

Recorded with producer, Machine (Clutch, Lamb of God, Every Time I Die), and mixed by engineer Alan Moulder (Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Them Crooked Vultures, Led Zeppelin), Welcome To Fat City is due for release September 23 via Wind-up Records. Catch the band on the road this summer and maybe you’ll hear a new tune or two.
