Vancouver, BC’s CRNKSHFT will be unleashing their new self-titled EP produced by Daren 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. 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 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, it's a mixer of everything in between, the songs have tonnes of dynamic, and we push for people to get caught up in it.”

Influenced by bands like Alice In Chains, Five Finger Death Punch, Pantera and Godsmack, CRNKSHFT have 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.

Teaming up with PureGrainAudio.com, CRNKSHFT have some 'Bad Habits' to brush off onto fans with an exclusive FREE download of their second single at the following link: http://puregrainaudio.com/audio/crnkshft-old-habits-free-song-download

CRNKSHFT is also streaming their first single 'Systematic', which has already won ‘Best Metal Song’ by the Academia Awards Academy in Los Angeles, demonstrating the band's punishing high octane sound is ready to win over the masses. Listen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8nMR5NEi90

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.”

Vocalist Shane Jolie adds about the lyrics:
“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.”

Mark it down on your calendar; there is no stopping the CRNKSHFT freight train. Their self-titled EP will be available on iTunes, Bandcamp, CD Baby, Spotify and all major online retailers as of March 24, 2017.

For those in the Vancouver area, CRNKSHFT will be hosting their local CD release show at Hindenburg on March 25th with support from Bone State Rebellion, 2 Shadows and Porcelain Sky. Full details can be found here.

""For those that like their music fast and powerful, this is the appetizer for you. It’s all kinds of mad power...an epic little album from a band that is close to conquering the universe… or at the very least, close to setting it aflame." - 925 Rebellion


"Opener ‘Systematic’ will testify to this with punchy and growling riffs and equally growling vocals which somewhat draw you in and immediately your foots a tapping and your head is banging, as the air guitar sits proudly on your lap as you ‘Systematically’ scream and roar to the vocals which if you listen closer also have a story to tell." - We Rock Webzine

"CRNKSHFT's forthcoming release sells me on the group's ultimate potential. I look forward to hearing what else this Canadian band can do. " - Heavy Metal Time Machine

"Stomping drop tuned leads, soaring vocals and hard-charging grooves litter the lead single, a formula that pays off in spades on the riff-tacular “Tears Me Apart,”" - Get Exposed Music

"these guys have a running start to the hard rock scene, and if their message and sound stays in their current vein, there’s no denying that this band will put a crankshaft kick-start to this year’s list of burgeoning, fantastic new artists." - Shockwave Mag

"the four tracks are full of grunge influences and a killer metal delirium that will capture your heart ,and ignite your mind. "Systematic" kicks the release off in fine style ,with its bludgeoning , punishing riffs its easy to see why this was the band's first single, the lead guitars strings are flayed as the guys will have you banging your head and bouncing around the room this is a stylistic killer opener." - The Metal Meltdown
