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.

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.”

“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!”
