Crobot Premiere New Song “Low Life”, Reveal Details For New Album “Motherbrain”

Crobot have premiered a new song titled “Low Life.” This track is from the band’s new album “Motherbrain,” which will be released on August 23.

“Motherbrain” Track Listing:

01. “Burn”
02. “Keep Me Down”
03. “Drown”
04. “Low Life”
05. “Alpha Dawg”
06. “Stoning The Devil”
07. “Gasoline”
08. “Destroyer”
09. “Blackout”
10. “After Life”
11. “The Hive”

Chris Bishop said the following about the record:

“When we were making the record, it was all about ‘meat, strings, and emotion.’ It explains the thought process. We’d usually start the day with chicken biscuits from Chik-fil-A. Obviously, I would play the strings. The emotion comes from the sheer power of me playing.”

Brandon Yeagley added:

“It had nothing to do with the chicken biscuits.”

“I think it’s a much darker record, musically, lyrically, and thematically. 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.”

The group have booked several shows around the album’s release:

08/22 Brooklyn, NY – Saint Vitus
08/23 Teaneck, NJ – Debonair Music Hall
08/24 Andreas, PA – Skookstock
08/25 Asbury Park, NJ – Asbury Lanes

Crobot Premiere “Keep Me Down” Music Video

Crobot have premiered a new video for their new song “Keep Me Down.” This track is expected to appear on the group’s new album, which they are working on with producer Corey Lowery. The band describe the song as “a kick to the teeth and a punch to the dick, ‘Keep Me Down‘ let’s all y’all mutha funkers know – Crobot‘s back and we’re comin’ out swinging, baby!”

Crobot Sign With Mascot Label Group

Crobot have sign a new global recording agreement with Mascot Label Group. The band commented:

“For almost two years, the Crobot funk has been fermenting beneath the streets of Pottsville, Pennsylvania festering into a creature grimier than a dead rat’s asshole. Now, we are extremely excited to announce we are the newest members of the insanely talented Mascot Label Group roster! Big things are happening in Fat City, Beardos so stay tuned!”

Crobot Welcome New Drummer & Bassist

Crobot have announced the addition of bassist James Lascu (Wilson) drummer Dan Ryan to their lineup. They are taking over for Jake and Paul Figueroa, who exited the group back in April.

The band commented:

“All is definitely well in the Crobot home nebula as we welcome the insanely talented and hard hitting Dan Ryan on drums and the power and monstrous bass playing of James “Uncle Jimmy Muscles” Lascu to hold down the heavy bottom. We are 50 songs into the writing process and we are excited about how productive we have been over the last few months. To say these guys are making us a better band would be an incredible understatement. Stay tuned for new riffin’ & groovin’ as we are planning for a 2018 release!

Keep your beards tuned to that same ol Crobot transmission!”

Crobot Part Ways With Drummer & Bassist

Crobot have parted ways with bassist Jake Figueroa and drummer Paul Figueroa. With the brothers gone, the band will move forward with fill-in bassist Alec Padron (Scorpion Child) and drummer Kevin Fender (The Sword).

The band commented:

“To all of our friends, family, and fans:

We regret to inform you all that Jake and Paul Figueroa will no longer be continuing as members of Crobot. We’ve had an amazing journey as a band together for the last few years but creative differences have driven us apart. There is no denying the unmistakable presence on and off the stage of the rhythm powerhouse that is the Figueroa brothers and whatever comes next for them will certainly be something to look forward to.

We are continuing to write new music and will be back in a big way with the help of Alec Padron of Scorpion Child filling in on bass duties and Kevin Fender, formerly of the Sword, on drums. Although moves like this are very tough and heartbreaking for everyone involved, we wish nothing but the best to the brothers and thank them for their dedication throughout the last 4 years. Stay tuned for more updates and we hope to see you out on the road this summer.
