Super-charged fetish rock that taunts and seduces you into submission. Crud creates sights and sounds that linger. Think Fight Club. Think A Clockwork Orange. Think you’ve seen anything like it? Think again. It’s “Grindhouse” meets“Easy Rider” – audio crack for deviants.
Crud’s debut CD DEVIL AT THE WHEEL featured fiendishly addictive tracks that continue to be the soundtrack of choice for TV’s hottest shows. The disc’s title track was recently featured in FX’s hit show “SONS OF ANARCHY” and was also used in the TV film trailer for the 2009 blockbuster film “SHERLOCK HOLMES,” starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law.
Additional Crud tracks have been spotlighted on episodes of CSI (CBS), Burn Notice (USA), VH1′s “History of Metal,” and “Celebrity Fit Club,” Spike TV’s “Scream Awards,” E’s “20 Acts of Love Gone Wrong,” MTV’s “Cribs,” video game “Test Drive 2,” horror flick “Laid to Rest,” plus many, many more.
The single “Reality” (Bang, Bang, Bang!) in particular has enjoyed massive TV exposure -and was even A&E’s theme song for their “CSI Wednesdays” promotion.
Now with the release of Crud’s highly anticipated new sophomore CD “CRUD ON MONSTER ISLAND” the band is poised to further infect the masses. Already, Crud’s song “The Man Goes Down” – from the new disc – provided a dark aural backdrop to a frenzied criminal chase scene on ABC’s “Detroit 1-8-7″ TV show.
Live, Crud delivers an intoxicating and provocative rock show like none other. Fronted by Vinnie Dombroski (who the Austin Chronicle calls one of rock’s most mesmerizing front-men) and burlesque beauty Danielle Arsenault, Crud grinds out a visual and aural assault that leaves you begging for more. Band mates David Black (guitar), Dana Forrester (bass), and Leander Decordova (drums) set the stage ablaze with delicious gritty decadence.
Hailing from Detroit’s underbelly, Crud toured the UK, including a headlining slot at the Whitby Goth Festival. The band also rocked Rue Morgue Magazine’s “Festival of Fear” with George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) in Toronto, in addition to headlining some of the coolest festivals across the land including Theatre Bizarre, The Peoples’ Arts Festival, Arts, Beats and Eats Festival, Noir Leather and Showtime Clothing Anniversary Bashes, “Pink’s All Out” party at Milan Dragway, Carnival of Chaos and more!
Crud has been profiled in “Bizarre,” “Spin,” “Metal Hammer UK,” “Girls and Corpses” and other cutting edge media outlets.
