|Crobot Something Supernatural Limited Gatefold Vinyl LP
· Central Pennsylvanian quartet Crobot conjure up sonic ghosts and stories that were seemingly interpreted from crop circles with their new album ‘Something Supernatural’.
· The album manages to capture the powerful punch of lead singer Brandon Yeagley’s vocals, the head bobbing guitar riffs of Chris Bishop, Jake Figueroa’s solid low bass frequencies and his brother Paul Figueroa’s sticks of thunder. Crobot have found the formula to take them into the riff rock abyss and beyond, all helmed by famed producer Machine (Clutch, Lamb Of God, Gym Class Heroes).
· According to legend, Crobot got their name from their penchant for jamming crowbar-esque riffs with low robotic octave effects but if you ask Brandon, Crobot have evolved into more than that. “Crobot is a collection of likeminded
and like-bearded individuals who stand for neither going against the grain or with it, but avoiding shaving all together.”
· Crobot’s approach to songwriting has evolved from Brandon and Bishop’s creations into a group effort. Most of the time Bishop will come to the band with a riff or a loose song structure that they’ll jam to, part by part, until they’re feeling it. “I’ll improvise some melody lines over the parts usually after the band finds solid ground, enough to jam through,” says Brandon. “The music usually gives me a great sense of the direction of the lyrics. Sometimes influenced by old horror / sci-fi flicks I’ve watched as a child.”
· With killer live shows described by Brandon as “like lighting a quarter stick of dynamite and throwing it in an un-flushed toilet,” what’s next for Crobot? With breakout live performances at SXSW in 2013 and 2014, touring with artists like Clutch, The Sword, Truckfighters and Kyng, as well as their debut UK shows with The Virginmarys, the possibilities for Crobot’s interstellar domination are endless.
