BIOGRAPHY

Vancouver, BC’s CRNKSHFT are setting the scene ablaze with their explosive, drop tune aggression with melody at its core. To sum it all up…these guys are ‘hard as f**k’.

Influenced by bands like Alice In Chains, Pantera, Metallica, Nirvana and Godsmack, CRNKSHFT have carved out a sound in the vein of Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, Breaking Benjamin, and Alexisonfire.

Since the band’s formation in 2015, CRNKSHFT’s engine has been firing on all cylinders with their debut EP ‘Hard F***ing Rock’ released in 2015 plus being tapped as local support for such touring bands as Prong, Grim Reaper, Lordi and The Veer Union.

Now running on all cylinders CRNKSHFT released their self-titled EP produced by Daren Grahn (Metallica, Hedley, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi)

“Our EP showcases the full spectrum of hard rock, with huge shout outs to our metal and softer side with everything else in between” When it comes to lyrics, vocalist Shane Jolie explains.

“CRNKSHFT has a song for every mood and a song for every heavy listener, whether you want to be blitzed with aggression or wallow in some self doubt, we’ve got you’re back.”

CRNKSHFT prides itself on writing intense, dynamic music and when they perform it’s the ‘zero f**ks 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.

CRNKSHFT has most recently been Nominated for Break Out West – Hard Rock Band of the year 2018, and has been invited to play at Indie Week 2018, one of Canada’s largest music showcases in Toronto, Ont.

Make no mistake there is no stopping the CRNKSHFT freight train. The self-titled EP is available on iTunes, Bandcamp, CD Baby, Spotify and all major online retailers!

Wow wow WOW!!!!!!!This is amazing!!!! What a great track! It just ripped my face off!

Sylvia Massy (producer for Tool, System Of A Down, Red Hot
Chili Peppers)

I have always said I wish I had “one of those tracks” under my belt. You know, the track that you could play for really anybody; a kid, a peer, a heavy musician, a producer, someone whom you’d like to impress for whatever reason, anybody… that is the track for me. Great writing, tons of energy, unapologetic, dynamics, intent, world class production, all parts are so strong, title and guitar hook so memorable.
