Artist Profile


Vancouver, British Columbia
CRNKSHFT is an explosive band composed of five musicians from Vancouver, Canada. Their brand of rock is high in energy and it’s something you can notice when you see the band live and listen to their songs.
CRNKSHFT’s original sound gives them a refreshing take on heavy music that forges metal, rock, and grunge genres together. Their riffs are designed to get your blood pulsing, their dynamics get your fist pumping, and the melody keeps you singing along. CRNKSHFT prides itself on writing raw, emotional, music; that is transforming a genre that they themselves have branded “H.F.R.”(Hard Fucking Rock).
In 2016, CRNKSHFT is asked to open for two bands who are on a world tour. Shortly after those two big shows, CRNKSHFT released their new single « Systematic » from their upcoming album ZFG (Zero Fucks Given) that will be available in March 2017. This new album is produced by Darren Grahn who has worked with Metallica, Hedley, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi and many more.
The EP’s first released single “Systematic” has already won ‘Best Metal Song’ by the Academia Awards Academy in Los Angeles, demonstrating that CRNKSHFT’s punishing high octane sound is ready to win over the masses.
The band started 2017 by opening for LORDI on their North American Tour, in Vancouver.
