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.
