Vancouver, BC’s CRNKSHFT announce they will be unleashing their new self-titled EP produced byDaren Grahn (Metallica, Hedley, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi) on March 24, 2017 to follow their 2015 debut ‘Hard Fucking Rock’.  Since the band’s formation in 2015, CRNKSHFT’s engine has been firing on all cylinders setting their scene ablaze with their explosive, drop tune aggression with melody at its core.Influenced by bands like Alice In Chains, Five Finger Death Punch, Pantera and Godsmack, CRNKSHFThave carved out a sound in the vein of Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, Alter Bridge plus Black Stone Cherry and are ready to shift gear to full speed.

The wrecking crew comments on the forthcoming EP:

“Our new EP is a beast; we are really excited to showcase our melodic side. The four songs should touch a wide demographic of fans, which is what we want. We aren’t looking to be defined as just a heavy metal band, but as a hard knocking punch to get anyone going. We’re accepted by all those who listen to metal and rock. The whole idea of CRNKSHFT’s music is that we’ll be enjoyed by fans across a variety of genres.”
The EP’s first single ‘Systematic’ has already won ‘Best Metal Song’ by the Academia Awards Academy in Los Angeles, demonstrating that CRNKSHFT’s punishing high octane sound is ready to win over the masses.Listen to ‘Systematic’ at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8nMR5NEi90

When it comes to lyrics, vocalist Shane Jolie explains:

“This EP is pseudo political, but also has songs about heartache and emotions, it’s not a story from start to finish, and each song has its own message. It’s an EP to show the world who we are and what we’re all about. My writing is dark, ideas came from depression and anger, sometimes when I’m happy, but mostly not and it’s still very true to this day. I want people to take whatever they can from the listening experience of our new EP. Music always helped me out of my funks and I want CRNKSHFT to do the same. Let it be accessible to all people and all feelings.”

CRNKSHFT prides itself on writing raw, emotional music and when they perform with zero fucks given, what you see is what you get…a leave it all on stage attitude that gets fans fists pumping, head banging and singing along to the band’s anthemic melodies. The band has already been tapped as local support for such touring bands as Prong, Grim Reaper, and The Veer Union.

“We’re not a band that’s going to give you stage props and fake blood and shit, we’re going to give you an emotional rollercoaster, it’s not just straight metal or straight rock its a mixer of everything in between, the songs have tonnes of dynamic, and we push for people to get caught up in it.”

Their next show date will be opening for Finnish metallers LORDI’s first North American tour stop on February 2nd at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, BC. Full details can foundhere.
