An amalgamation of several local area New York bands including Iron Chic, Sister Kisser, American Hellfire Club, and Jonesin', Long Island, New York punkers Crow Bait formed in 2011 around their love for bands they grew up listening to from the 90's indie/pop-punk scene. Since their formation they've released a few singles, the Three Tickle Guys EP, and covered Husker Du's Dead Set On Destruction for the "Something To Du" tribute.
Crow Bait are set to release their full-length debut album Sliding Through The Halls Of Fate on May 20th via Don Giovanni Records, a label that continues to sign more and more bands that are right in my wheelhouse.
"83" is the first single off the new album. Mix a little Archers of Loaf, with a little Superchunk and you have the makings of this danceable gem. The folks over at Stereogum have premiered the second single "The Ocean". Check it out here.
