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 Darren Grahn who has engineered on albums for Metallica, Hedley, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi. CRNKSHFT just wrapped up their first cross Canada tour that kicked off September 7th in Kelowna, BC and ending in Montreal, QC on September 23rd.
The band has put together a special deluxe edition of their self-titled EP that includes two bonus tracks "Burning Me Alive" and "Darkside". The band has unleashed a new music video for "Darkside" that can be viewed below:
“Our new EP is a beast; we are really excited to showcase our melodic side. The six songs on the deluxe edition 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.”
