Influenced by bands like Alice In Chains, Five Finger Death Punch, Pantera and Godsmack, Vancouver, BC’s CRNKSHFT have carved out a sound in the vein of Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, Alter Bridge plus Black Stone Cherry. Going full throttle, the band released their self-titled EP this past March to follow their 2015 debut ‘Hard Fucking Rock’. The EP was produced by Daren Grahn who has engineered on albums for Metallica, Hedley, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi  and features their award winning single ‘Systematic’ voted ‘Best Metal Song’ at the Academia Awards Academy in Los Angeles, demonstrating the band’s punishing high octane sound.Embarking on their first cross Canada tour this September (dates listed below), the tour will kick off in Kelowna, BC on September 7th and end in Montreal, QC on September 23rd. These heavy hitters are also scheduled to perform prior to the tour at the Hi, Society Music Festival in Kamloops, BC on August 18th.

CRNKSHFT comments:
“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.”

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.  They pride themselves 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 Unio
