Pennsylvanian rockers Crobot have announced their new record Rat Child EP, which will be released globally on 18 June via Mascot Records. The EP features a mighty cast of Frank Bello (Anthrax) , Howard Jones (Light The Torch/ex-Killswitch Engage) and Stix Zadina (Steel Panther).
Speaking of their new riff fuelled single ‘Kiss It Goodbye’, which features Howard Jones, Singer Brendan Yeagley explains "We’ve idolized Howard Jones’ ability to pinpoint the perfect melody since picking up our instruments and that dude is on beast mode here. And those guitars sound like they’re right out of an Alien flick - This one is soaked in acidy-spit! Howard was introduced to us through mutual friends. We have always been huge fans of his melodic footprint and his unique melodies. When we heard he would be interested in writing with us, we were beyond excited.
The band’s most recent studio album Motherbrain was a global hit. Cumulative streams surpassed 20 million plays, 14 million of which were of the single “Low Life.” The accompanying music video for the track has been viewed over 1.5 million times, while the song was a Top 10 hit at Rock radio in America with a lengthy 29 week run on the Billboard charts. The follow-up “Gasoline” had a strong run on the U.S. charts as well.
