"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 Union.
