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 Daren Grahn who has engineered on albums for Metallica, Hedley, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and features their award winning single ‘Systematic’ voted ‘Best Metal Song’ at the Academia Awards Academy in Los Angeles, demonstrating the band’s punishing high octane sound.
Embarking on their first cross Canada tour this September (dates listed below), the tour will kick off in Kelowna, BC on September 7th and end in Montreal, QC on September 23rd. These heavy hitters are also scheduled to perform prior to the tour at the Hi, Society Music Festival in Kamloops, BC on August 18th. Details can be found here.
