Nuclear Blast are pleased to announce the signing of Pennsylvanian based band CROBOT.
Frontman Brandon Yeagley has stated his excitement to sign with the prestigious rock label:
“We're honoured to have Nuclear Blast as the international wind beneath our beards. With bands like GRAVEYARD, SCORPION CHILD, ORCHID, & KADAVAR on their roster, Nuclear Blast Europe is the perfect place for CROBOT to nest." Brandon Yeagley (Vocals)
They’re already whipping up a storm in the US having played SXSW earlier in the year and have toured with the likes of CLUTCH, SCORPION CHILD, TRUCKFIGTHERS and THE SWORD.
In their home territory they released a self-titled 4-track EP in May of this year and quickly gained comparisons with the likes of QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and WOLFMOTHER with their penchant for leather, hot sauce and, more vitally, performing a mind-blowing, riff-heavy, sweat-inducing live show.
The quartet worked with respected and acclaimed producer Machine (CLUTCH, LAMB OF GOD) on their EP and upcoming album.

Nuclear Blast cannot wait to bring their sludgy groove-heavy riffs to European shores. CROBOT will be over on their first UK tour supporting THE VIRGINMARYS in September, expect some heavy and leather-infused riffage.
