Crobot live at Saint Vitus in 2017 by Jonathan Arevalo

PA heavy rockers Crobot have officially revealed their new and fourth studio album, Motherbrain, set for release on August 23rd through Mascot Records (pre-order).

Last month, the band dropped a music video for their new song and Motherbrain‘s first single, “Keep Me Down,” and today, the gang have unleashed another fresh track, “Low Life.” Check out streams below.

Regarding the upcoming LP, guitarist / vocalist Chris Bishop says in a press release:

When we were making the record, it was all about ‘meat, strings, and emotion.’ It explains the thought process. We’d usually start the day with chicken biscuits from Chik-fil-A. Obviously, I would play the strings. The emotion comes from the sheer power of me playing.

Lead vocalist Brandon Yeagley adds:

It had nothing to do with the chicken biscuits.

Yeagley continues to say:

I think it’s a much darker record, musically, lyrically, and thematically. It’s some of the heaviest material we’ve ever done, but it’s also some of the funkiest. We’re widening the Crobot spectrum even more. It’s the catchiest too. It’s less about wizards and dragons and more about everyday turmoil and the struggles of life. [Producer] Corey [Lowery] made it digestible and appealing for not just dudes with beards or chicks with dicks.

Additionally, Crobot have confirmed 4 special shows surrounding Motherbrain‘s release:

08/22 – Brooklyn, NY @ Saint Vitus [TIX]
08/23 – Teaneck, NJ @ Debonair Music Hall [TIX]
08/24 – Andreas, PA @ Skookstock [TIX]
