Crobot have officially postponed their December tour. This news comes after the band’s trailer full of gear was stolen.

The group commented:

“Attention #beardos We have an announcement that sucks to make.

With the unfortunate event of our trailer full of our gear being stolen, we are forced to postpone our upcoming holiday tour.

Beardos around the globe are pulling together to aid us during this hard time and we can’t thank you all enough for your donations and support. It really means the world to us and we are overwhelmed with gratitude.

We will update you all on the progress of our attempts to recover our trailer and gear.

If you have any information or wish to support, contact us or follow the link below to a GoFundMe that’s been organized on our behalf.

We hope you all go out and still support the shows being hosted by the awesome radio stations that have supported us through the years and continue their support of our single Golden.

We will see you guys sooner than you think. Santa may come early this year. Happy holidays ya filthy beardos!”

GoFundMe Launched For Crobot After Thieves Steal Their Trailer And Gear

While Crobot were in Austin, TX, thieves ended up stealing their entire trailer full of gear. You can help the band out by donating via GoFundMe.

The group commented:

“We’ve seen it happen too often and sadly, now it’s happened to us. To say these thieves made away with our livelihood is an understatement.

We’re going through every avenue and option we have to retrieve our stolen gear and will continue to do so. We fear though our options are few and won’t come close to what we’ll need to get back on our feet.

If you’d like to help in any way our great friend Maia Donohue put together a GoFundMe to help us replace all of our stolen gear and purchase a new trailer.

We hate that it has to come to this but anything helps.

If anyone has any information regarding our stolen gear, please contact us.

Thanks for all of your support!”

Crobot Premiere “Set You Free” Video

Crobot have premiered a new video for their new song “Set You Free.” This track is from the band’s new album “Feel This,” which will be released on June 3. Frontman Brandon Yeagley commented:

“There’s a few things that you have to do when you find yourself deep in the heart of Texas shooting a music video – either something’s getting blown up or set on fire. We decided the latter for the filming of ‘Set You Free.’ It’s always a pleasure working with the crew of MyGoodEye and this one is literally on fire. With the help of our talented friend, Chelsee Jernigan (Fear of the Walking Dead, What About Molly?) we find ourselves lost in the woods with only the light of our flashlights and a few burning things…what things you ask? Well, what sort of things would you expect us to burn, Beardos?“

Crobot Premiere “Better Times” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Feel This”

Crobot have premiered a new video for their new song “Better Times.” This track is from the band’s new album “Feel This,” which will be released on June 3.

Frontman Brandon Yeagley commented:

“No need to search any further, #Beardos! Better Times are here to stay. You know we wouldn’t have it any other way. Buckle up and strap it down because Crobot is comin’ back to town. And with smiles on our faces, we’ve got all the right grooves that hit in all the right places. So, grab your junk – food that is – and tune into this special sneak preview of the studio, kids! See you out there this spring for some ass shakin, ear smackin’ thangs! Ca-caaaaawwwww!”

He also added the following about the new album:

“This is the record we’ve been wanting to do ever since we started. We’ve always thought of ourselves as a live act. When Jay Ruston described his process of recording, we were beyond excited about getting in and getting our hands dirty. It involved performing live as a unit and finishing all instruments on a song before moving on to the next. We recorded 16 songs in 21 days, which is a feat in itself.”

“Through constant struggles, we learn more what it’s like to be human. Our shortcomings and strengths alike make us a unique species. Feel This very well may point to our biggest strength of all, our ability to feel emotion (for better or worse).”

01. “Electrified”
02. “Dizzy”
03. “Set You Free”
04. “Better Times”
05. “Golden”
06. “Without Wings”
07. “Livin’ On The Streets”
08. “Into the Fire”
09. “Dance With The Dead”
10. “Holy Ghost”
11. “Never Break Me”
12. “Staring Straight Into The Sun”

Crobot Premiere Music Video For “Everyone Dies” Featuring Steel Panther’s Stix Zadinia

Crobot have premiered a new video for their new song “Everyone Dies.” The track, which features Steel Panther’s Stix Zadinia, will appear on the band’s new EP “Rat Child,” which will be released on June 18.

Crobot commented:

“One of the last tours we did was supporting Steel Panther. We hit it off with all of the guys. Stix even got tattooed by Bishop! We kept in touch and he sent us a bunch of ideas he had for songs.

We really gravitated towards this piano instrumental he had called ‘Jimmy’s Piano Song.’ We don’t know Jimmy, but Stix must really love that dude…cause that shit brought tears to our eyes. Through a couple of Zoom sessions, we were able to work everything out and that’s how we wrote ‘Everyone Dies.’

We really wanted to venture somewhere different with this one but still pump it full of our personality. This is our attempt to sit at the dinner table with Queen whilst eating a healthy portion of Meatloaf.”

Crobot Share Video For New Song “Kiss It Goodbye” Featuring Howard Jones, Announce July Tour

Crobot have premiered a new video for their new song “Kiss It Goodbye.” This track features Howard Jones (ex-Killswitch Engage) and it will appear on the band’s new EP “Rat Child,“ which is set to be released on June 18.

The group commented:

“Howard was introduced to us through mutual friends. We have always been huge fans of his melodic footprint and his unique melodies. When we heard he would be interested in writing with us, we were beyond excited. He flew down to Austin and spent a few days in a studio with us.

We had a such great chemistry with him and wrote ‘Kiss it Goodbye.’ We thought it was a shoe-in for being a track on ‘Motherbrain‘ but for whatever reason, it didn’t make the cut. It seemed like such a travesty to let such a great song sit on the shelf. So, we’re pumped to let the world hear it!”

Crobot To Release New EP “Rat Child” In June, Premiere “Mountain” Music Video

Crobot have announced that they will be releasing a new EP titled “Rat Child” on June 18. With this news, the band have also released a new song titled “Mountain.” That track features Anthrax’s Frank Bello and an official video for it can be found below:

“Rat Child” Track Listing:

01. “Mountain” (feat. Anthrax’s Frank Bello)
02. “Kiss It Goodbye” (feat. Light The Torch’s Howard Jones)
03. “Everyone Dies” (feat. Steel Panther’s Stix Zadinia)
04. “Rat Child”

Frontman Brandon Yeagley had the following to say about working with Frank Bello, Howard Jones, and Stix Zadinia:

“We’ve grown to know the Anthrax dudes pretty well through touring and developed a working relationship in addition to our friendships. We’ve always talked about writing with Frankie because we have a lot of the same influences and that definitely shines through in ‘Mountain.’ Frankie has always lent us his ear and has been a big supporter of ours – it was a treat to work with him on something.”

“One of the last tours we did was supporting Steel Panther. We hit it off with all of the guys. Stix even got tattooed by Bishop! We kept in touch and he sent us a bunch of ideas he had for songs.
