Crobot debut new song; "Welcome to Fat City"
Crobot are pleased to unveil their latest song off their new record, "Welcome to Fat City" premiering exclusively on Consequence of Sound. “‘Welcome to Fat City, the title track from our latest album, sets precedent for the groove-laden riffage that takes place throughout the album,” frontman Brandon Yeagley explained to Consequence of Sound. “Inspired by Hunter S Thompson’s campaign for Sheriff of Aspen, Fat City is a planet of sanctuary for the scum of the universe and cigar-smoking big wigs Hunter hoped to keep out of his fine city. Instead, we welcome them with open arms ’cause down here, it’s always gritty. Step right up Beardos and Welcome to Fat City!”
Due for release September 23, 2016 via Wind-up Records, the album, Welcome to Fat City is the bands second studio release, and the highly anticipated follow up to Something Supernatural which saw the Pennsylvania based four-piece dominate the US and European live scene, landing them tours with the likes of Motorhead, Volbeat, Anthrax, Clutch, Black Label Society, Chevelle, and more.
Winning the hearts of audiences at festivals like Rock on the Range, Sturgis and UK's Download Festival, Something Supernatural was also praised by the likes of Yahoo! Music, Revolver, Billboard, Huffington Post, Drum Magazine, Guitar World, Blabbermouth and was featured as VH1's "That Metal Shows" Pick of the Week."
Recorded with producer, Machine (Clutch, Lamb of God, Every Time I Die), and mixed by engineer Alan Moulder (Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Them Crooked Vultures, Led Zeppelin), Welcome To Fat City is due for release September 23 via Wind-up Records. Catch the band on the road with The Virginmarys and Aeges, and later this summer with Sevendust.
