Craving Strange

Craving Strange
Craving Strange

Their Bio.

A rock and roll band from Amityville, New York, mixing the aggressiveness of bands like Guns n Roses with the pop and melodic sense of Foo Fighters, that puts on infectious & energetic live shows! To sum it up, Craving Strange are four guys who obviously and genuinely do exactly what they were born to do…create, perform and repeat. 
  
In 2013 the band released two singles (Angeline and Breathe) produced and backed by Grammy Award winning Producer/Engineer Rob Jacobs (the Eagles,U2, Weezer).They joined Precedent Entertainment, successfully tour the Midwest and Northeast, and gained a partnership with Tinderbox Music Promotion and Distribution Company (Imagine Dragons) adding their music to over 100 radio stations across the country. They’ve appeared on national television, and have licensed music to everything from the Discovery Channel, Fox Sports, and NASCAR, to MTV, VH1 and Fuse. 

In 2014 Craving Strange released their 2nd full length album "A Life Exceptional". An evolution of a band and a sound, the band has taken the experience and lessons learned from 4 years of touring, writing, living, struggle, loss, success, and opportunity to create an album that represents their energy, drive, and contagious attitude that life is yours for the taking; never settle, never give in. An album that shows that Craving Strange has the ability to effect and touch listeners not only as the live band you need to see, but with new classics you’ll want to listen to again and again. 
    
Not only are they considered one of their areas premiere local acts, Craving Strange, with nothing but flyers, talent,  drive, and enthusiasm have packed and stole shows at top tier venues in NYC, LA, Austin, and Chicago opening for multi-platinum artists like Candlebox, Steel Panther, and more, as well as performing at major industry festivals SXSW, Red Gorilla, Texas Rock Fest and  the Bamboozle Festival where they won over thousands of music lovers who came out to see to see multi-platinum and influential bands like Foo Fighters, Incubus, and Bon Jovi.  
   
A brand new 6 song EP comes your way on March 21, 2017! 

Relentless drive, talent, humor, charisma, dedication, and a willingness to adapt and seize opportunities no matter how outside their “genre” Craving Strange is a band who knows who they are, loves what they do, and makes you want to be a part of it all.
