Janet Jackson & Crobot?

Currently on tour over in the USA, Crobot has found time to release a new single, and it’s a cover of Janet Jackson’s ‘Black Cat’

An  unusual choice you might think, but as band vocalist Brandon Yeagley revealed, “Every time we talked about covering a song, ‘Black Cat’ would come up as one we wished we had written.  

“So, here’s our chance to pay homage to the great Janet Jackson.  It’s got all the things that go into the Crobot sound – Bad ass riffs, a funky groove for days, and soaring high vocals. What’s not to like about this tune? It’s even got cow bell!”

Crobot’s most recent studio album titled Feel This, has delivered 4.3 million streams to date. Yeagley alongside Chris Bishop (Guitar) and Dan Ryan (Drums) picked up where they left off with Motherbrain, whose cumulative streams have now surpassed 33 million, two thirds of which were for the goliath track ‘Low Life’, a Top 10 single at Active Rock radio, with a 29-week run on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart. They also released videos for ‘Golden’, ‘Set You Free and ‘Better Times’ from Feel This.

Since the release of their previous album they have toured the US with GWAR, Steel Panther and they will be appearing at Rock Fest on the same bill as Slipknot and Ice Nine Kills this summer as well as Rocklahoma and Shiprocked festivals. They will also be heading out on a tour of the US and Canada through July and August before another run of dates in the US with GWAR.
They made waves with Legend Of The Spaceborne Killer (2012), Something Supernatural (2014), and Welcome To Fat City (2016). However, 2019’s Motherbrain represented a high watermark. They’ve crisscrossed the world road-warrior style, playing with the likes of Anthrax, Black Label Society, Chevelle, Clutch, Volbeat and Halestorm, alongside performing on festival bills and rock cruises. 

“We tour the pockets off of our pants and sleep in our van for half of the year. To some, that may seem like misery, but to us – it’s Heaven baby!” said Yeagley.

‘Black Cat’ is available through Mascot Records on all digital platforms and you can check out the video here at RAMzine.
