I hope you get a chance to see them perform live. These guys have such a refreshing new sound infused with a Dirty Groove Rock. They are like no other band out there today. Crobot is bringing the life back into classic rock/ stoner rock  with a double dose of groove in a modern style. Think like Zep ala Soundgarden with a side of Wolfmother. They have such a killer sound that is groove heavy, riff rock or as they say: “Bang your head and shake your ass at the same time“. That is the perfect way to describe it it.

You can check out our interview with Crobot when they came to play at the DNA Lounge here in San Francisco:

 

These guys are so much fun and their personalities light up the room on and off the stage.  Crobot is Brandon Yeagley on Lead Vocals and  Harp, Bishop on Guitar and Vocals, Jake Figueroa on Bass and Paul Figueroa – Drums. Together these four deliver a dirty groove rock sound that will have moving in no time. 

 

Here is  a tribute video that Rockin Ryan put together with footage of their San Francisco set:
