Biography

Dirty. Groove. Rock.

The current four members of Crobot — Brandon Yeagley (lead vocals), Chris Bishop (guitar), James Alexander Lascu of the band Wilson filling in on Bass and  Dan Ryan (drums) — have united to continue to keep bringing us a blending funk, blues, metal and good old-fashioned rock and roll into a howling vortex of Yeagley’s vocals, Bishop’s guitar and the James & Dan's backbone. 
Crobot have crafted an album of endless good time rock hooks that sound as inspired today as they would have on AOR radio in 1974.

“We grew up with the same riff rock and it’s seemingly lacking in today’s music. We really seem to like the rock of old and felt that was missing,” Yeagley says.

Crobot is a band that can rock at all tempos. Whether it’s the slow-building groove of “Skull Of Geronimo,” a methodical sludge-rocker that calls to mind Soundgarden in the chorus or the more up-tempo funkified “Nowhere To Hide,” a track that sounds like the Black Crowes driving a Camaro, Crobot display stellar musicianship and lyrical depth.

For example, on “Queen Of The Light,” the powerful closing track of Something Supernatural, Yeagley sings the story of a girl yearning for a new life. “She lives the darkest life/but all she wants to be is the queen of the light,” he sings against the plaintive wailing of the slow-moving melody. It’s one of the songs destined to strike a deep chord with fans in the same way the single “Nowhere To Hide” has become a good-time anthem.

“Nowhere To Hide” is one of the songs Yeagley cites as getting his feet wiggling. And he promises that on Something Supernatural there will be plenty more grooves to get fans moving, as those who’ve experienced Crobot live have already seen.

Musically, “Skull Of Geronimo” is one Yeagley sees as being undeniably representative of Crobot. “That’s a little on the heavier end of the spectrum, but it’s still got that funkiness to it,” he says. And lyrically, “Wizards” might be the Crobot statement song.

“It’s an epic tale of two wizards. One is on the side of wizardry and technology while the other is the side of natural spiritual wizardry and it’s a clash of funkiness and classic metal too in the same sense. So it’s a battle of epic proportions on all sides,” he says. “It’s just a song that fulfills all the ends of the spectrum of what Crobot is.”

Then there is the storytelling ability they show on a song like “La Mano De Lucifer,” a Biblical tale that starts off, “A failed rebellion/against the one creator/exiled to the fire.”

A modern rock band with a sense of humor CROBOT has already been making their mark among peers with their wild live performances. But for Crobot, at the end of the day, it is all about the sound.

“All I care about is that people walk away after hearing the album thinking, ‘Man, Crobot is the funkiest, heaviest band I’ve ever heard,’” Bishop says.

Mission accomplished.

Uncle Einar

 Jon Petry and Rich Samartin from Sussex County, New Jersey.

Both Jon and Rich have been playing together for a very long time and have grown to develop an instinctual playing style that can be seen and heard during live shows.

Jon Petry's guitar style is greatly influenced by Neil Young, Jesse Lacey (Brand New), Jessica Lea Mayfield, and Leslie Feist and Kurt Cobain;writing guitar riffs that utilize heavy, scratchy tones and dirty fuzz.

Rich Samartin's drumming style was developed over years of coping with difficult times in his life while using a snappy, loose-limb style and references Zak Hill as a major influence.

There music touches upon dark subject matter like dealing with mental illness and substance abusE
