At first listen, you might think Crobot is a band that was born in the wrong era. With their groove-soaked hard rock jams, it's easy to imagine them playing alongside '70s heavyweights Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. But the quartet's retro rock sound is making big waves today, treating ticket buyers to amped-up live performances and earning them comparisons to Wolfmother and Soundgarden. Frontman Brandon Yeagley is an absolutely mesmeric force on stage, busting out powerful vocals while getting a full-body workout with his hair-flipping moves. Equally as hypnotic is guitarist Chris Bishop, whose riff-heavy solos are equal parts funky and melodic on crowd favorites "Nowhere To Hide" and "La Mando de Lucifer". Riding high on the success of their stellar 2014 debut album, Crobot is an act that demands to be seen in concert.
Singer Brandon Yeagley and guitarist Chris Bishop formed Crobot in 2012 in their native Pennsylvania. As a duo they self-released one EP, 2012's The Legend Of The Spaceborne Killer, before rounding out their rhythm section with bassist Jake Figueroa and his brother, drummer Paul Figueroa. The quartet penned a deal with Wind-Up Records in 2013 and spent the year building a dedicated fanbase on tour alongside Clutch, The Sword, Truckfighters, The Virginmarys, and more. 2014 was a huge year for the band -- they performed show-stopping sets at South by Southwest and Rock on the Range and their single "Nowhere To Hide" hit No. 16 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs chart. In October of 2014 they released their debut album Something Supernatural before finishing the year on a high note with their own US headlining tour.
