Crobot alone is fantastic, but throw in vocalist Howard Jones (Light The Torch, Sion, etc.), and you've got something even better. The band is now streaming their new single "Kiss It Goodbye" featuring Jones, which vocalist Brandon Yeagley said was a dream come true.
“‘Kiss It Goodbye’ is a complete full-circle moment for us. We’ve idolized Howard Jones’ ability to pinpoint the perfect melody since picking up our instruments and that dude is on beast mode here. And those guitars sound like they’re right out of an Alien flick – This one is soaked in acidy-spit!”
“Howard was introduced to us through mutual friends. We have always been huge fans of his melodic footprint and his unique melodies. When we heard he would be interested in writing with us, we were beyond excited. He flew down to Austin and spent a few days in a studio with us. We had a such great chemistry with him and wrote this song. We thought it was a shoe-in for being a track on Motherbrain but for whatever reason, it didn’t make the cut. It seemed like such a travesty to let such a great song sit on the shelf. So, we’re pumped to let the world hear it now.”
Crobot will release their new EP Rat Child, featuring Motherbrain b-sides and new songs, on June 18. Pre-orders are available here.
