Back in a simpler time there was no indie, no emo, no nu-rave. No post-this, post-that, post-whatever the hell else. There was just riff-laden, ballsy rock ‘n’ roll; huge songs, life-changing gigs and a whole world of noisy, gutsy fun that took people out of their dreary everyday lives and made them feel truly special. It’s from this effervescent historical well that the UK’s most charismatic young band draw their inspirations. But this is no retro pastiche, these boys are young, hungry and bringing anthemic rock songwriting flailing and wailing into the 21st century. The past 3 years have seen the guys complete 3 tours of the US including shows at the Harley Davidson 105th Anniversary alongside Bruce Springsteen and the Foo Fighters, the Brit Bus tour which took them 5,000 miles across the Country on an English double-decker bus and a headlining show at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel Casino on Halloween night. Add to this over 140 tour dates in the UK & Europe since the start of '09 both on their own and with Shinedown, Hot Leg, Hinder, Buckcherry, Theory of a Deadman, Deep Purple, Heaven’s Basement, Flyleaf, Vains Of Jenna, Daughtry & most recently w/Status Quo - plus slots at Download, Sonisphere, Rock Im Park & Rock Am Ring festivals last year - and The Crave are a powerful well-oiled live machine.
