Pennsylvania hard rock band Crobot has released their new single “Mountain,” from their upcoming EP. Rat Child is set to be released on June 18, 2021 via Mascot Records. The group collaborated with several artists on the new EP, including Light the Torch’s Howard Jones on “Kiss It Goodbye” and Steel Panther’s Stix Zadina on “Everyone Dies.” The new track features bassist Frank Bello of Anthrax.
Crobot frontman Brandon Yeagley shares, “We’ve grown to know the Anthrax dudes pretty well through touring and developed a working relationship in addition to our friendships. We’ve always talked about writing with Frankie because we have a lot of the same influences and that definitely shines through in ‘Mountain.”’ He goes on to say, “Frankie has always lent us his ear and has been a big supporter of ours – it was a treat to work with him on something.”

In the energetic and catchy single, Yeagley sings lyrics about being “made of stone.” Powerful vocals, bright percussion and vibrant guitars compliment bold lyrics like “I am not a man, I am a mountain.” The band’s distinct sound comes through in “Mountain.”

In April of 2020, Yeagley collaborated with members of Anthrax, Testament and Suicidal Tendencies, providing vocals for a cover of the classic Rush tracks, “Freewill” and “Red Barchetta.” Crobot played at Mötorhead’s Motörboat Cruise that included artists like Hatebreed, Exodus and more, in March of 2015.
