Crobot has announced the Year Of The Dawg Tour, a run of dates which will begin in Pittsburgh, PA on December 3 at the Crafthouse. The itinerary will be staged in support of the band’s recently released new studio album “Motherbrain”.

The lead single “Low Life” is a Top 20 hit at Active Rock radio, moving higher week to week. Singer Brandon Yeagley offers: “It’s an anthem about this outside perspective on the definition of a low life. There’s a misconception that being a touring musician without a lot of money makes you a lowlife, but how is that really any different from the rest of the world? And, if that does make you a lowlife, we’re okay with it!”...

Crobot has confirmed the following upcoming Year Of The Dawg appearances.

Order “Motherbrain” here.

During late 2017, the boys started to write what would become “Motherbrain”. Signing to Mascot Records, the group went from writing at Chris’ spot in Austin, TX to Marietta, GA where they holed up in the studio with Corey Lowery (Seether, Saint Asonia, Sevendust, Stereomud) for a month. The producer’s direction to embrace the dark side took life, while Brandon delivered some of the most emotive recordings Crobot has delivered to date.

“I think it’s a much darker record, musically, lyrically, and thematically”, says the frontman. “It’s some of the heaviest material we’ve ever done, but it’s also some of the funkiest. We’re widening the Crobot spectrum even more. It’s the catchiest too. It’s less about wizards and dragons and more about everyday turmoil and the struggles of life. Corey made it digestible and appealing for not just dudes with beards or chicks with dicks”.

Striking a delicate balance between hard-charging riffs, ass-shaking funk, and out-of-this-world reflective stage attire, the Pennsylvania quartet - Brandon Yeagley (lead vocals, harmonica), Chris Bishop (guitar, vocals), and Dan Ryan (drums) - satisfy starvation for sonic sustenance on their fourth full-length and 2019 debut for Mascot Label Group, “Motherbrain”. James Lascu and Eddie Collins share the role of touring bassist for Crobot.

Crobot continue to fill a void. Since emerging in 2011, the group have quietly cemented themselves among the rising rock vanguard. Following the 2012 debut “Legend of the Spaceborne Killer” and 2014’s “Something Supernatural”, the musicians made waves with “Welcome to Fat City” in 2016. Consequence of Sound praised the title track as “a stomping slice of doom”, and Classic Rock bestowed a coveted 4-out-of-5-star rating on the album, going on to claim, “"Welcome to Fat City" is a mighty leap forward for Crobot, an ebullient masterclass”. Not to mention, they received acclaim from AXS, New Noise Magazine, and more as total album streams surpassed the 1-million-mark. Along the way, Crobot toured with the likes of Anthrax, Clutch, Black Label Society, Volbeat, Chevelle, Motorhead, The Sword, and more in addition to appearing on ShipRocked! and at numerous other festivals.

“When people hear this, I hope they say, "Yeah, that’s Crobot"”, the front man leaves off. “We want to maintain our identity from record to record. We always want to be genuine. It’s going to evolve, but it will always be Crobot”.
