CRABE

ART PUNK

Formed in 2007, CRABE is one part weird punk and one part positive sonic assault, melding complex structures and surreal melodies. The one of a kind duo, recognized for skillfully creating chaos during performances where they seem possessed, has played over 200 times in North America.

In 2009, the band was welcomed into the Signed By Force family (Red Mass, The Nymphets, Nutsak, Bionic, Devil Eyes). In May of 2016, CRABE independently released the album Le temps f33l, and took home the GAMIQ award for punk album of the year.

Math rock’s angular riffs and time signature switches characterize the Francophone band’s punk

LAtest RELEASE

PRESS

CRABE est « un feu d’artifice incontrôlé », comme ces accidents pyrotechniques qui font les manchettes durant le Diwali indien ou le Nouvel An chinois. Dangereux, spectaculaire, aveuglant, imprévisible (...)
— Le Devoir
“Le Temps F33l” smashes together so many elements, but it always sounds cohesive, always part of the same strange and seductive CRABE universe. The band is making some of the most interesting and fun rock music out there, and this release should open up their vision to a broader audience.
— The Spark Mag
Guitare-batterie et beaucoup de bruit, mais aussi des structures surprenantes car non conventionnelles. Le binôme montréalais se plaît à déconstruire les formes, à s’éloigner de toute rigidité en gardant néanmoins une certaine cohérence malgré le maelstrom dans lequel il nous entraîne.
