“The Crave just showed me again why I think they are one of the best rock 'n roll bands in the World right now ... period.” - Zach Myers, Shinedown

Back in a simpler time there was no indie, no emo, no nu-rave. No post-this, post-that, post-whatever the hell else. There was just riff-laden, ballsy rock 'n' roll; huge songs, life-changing gigs and a whole world of noisy, gutsy fun that took people out of their dreary everyday lives and made them feel truly special. It's from this effervescent historical well that the UK's most charismatic young band draw their inspirations. But this is no retro pastiche - these boys are young, hungry and bringing anthemic rock songwriting flailing and wailing into the 21st century.

"Being in this band is an escape from reality, all that matters when we're onstage is the music and the audience and making sure every person in that room leaves feeling like they have just been a part of something truly special" Ryan Burnett (vocals and guitar).

The past 3 years have seen the guys complete 3 tours of the US including shows at the Harley Davidson 105th Anniversary alongside Bruce Springsteen and the Foo Fighters, the Brit Bus tour which took them 5,000 miles across the country on an English double-decker bus and a headlining show at the Las Vegas Hard Rock Hotel Casino on Halloween night. Add to this over 140 tour dates in the UK & Europe since the start of '09 both on their own and with Shinedown, Hinder, Buckcherry, Theory of a Deadman, Heaven’s Basement, Flyleaf and more - plus slots at Download, Sonisphere, Rock Im Park & Rock Am Ring festivals last year - and The Crave achieved all of this with their record not even having been released!

The Crave’s debut album 'Breaking The Silence' will be released on 7th March 2011. The record was produced by the Grammy Award nominated Matt Hyde (Fightstar, Slipknot, Trivium, Gallows …) at Ironworks studios in Brighton.
