“Crobot’s New Song Will Crush You – in a Good Way”

Crobot are pleased to unveil, “Plague of the Mammoths,” the latest offering from their new record, “Welcome to Fat City”. Premiering exclusively on Red Bull, band frontman, Brandon Yaegley explains the story behind the brutal track – “”Plague of the Mammoths’ is the story of the extinction of an old way of thought — it’s the end of an era,” he mentioned. “It started as just a title, though, and developed into a storyline of the Crobot universe. Our European tour manager, Jay Smith, mentioned something about a plague of the mammoths. We said, “F— dude! That’s gotta be a new song title!” Stream here.

Due for release September 23, 2016 via Wind-up Records, the album, Welcome to Fat City is the bands second studio release, and the highly anticipated follow up to Something Supernatural which saw the Pennsylvania based four-piece dominate the US and European live scene, landing them tours with the likes of Motorhead, Volbeat, Anthrax, Clutch, Black Label Society, Chevelle, and more.

Winning the hearts of audiences at festivals like Rock on the Range, Sturgis and UK’s Download Festival, Something Supernatural was also praised by the likes of Yahoo! Music, Revolver, Billboard, Huffington Post, Drum Magazine, Guitar World, Blabbermouth and was featured as VH1’s “That Metal Shows” Pick of the Week.”

Recorded with producer, Machine (Clutch, Lamb of God, Every Time I Die), and mixed by engineer Alan Moulder (Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Them Crooked Vultures, Led Zeppelin), Welcome To Fat City is due for release September 23 via Wind-up Records.
