As the FMX Big Purple Party slowly approaches and I know everyone is stoked to see Deftones and Staind but let's not forget the earlier bands that will set the tone for the FMX Big Purple Party. Let's get familiar with the very first band taking the inside stage of the Pavilion , Crobot.

Throwing their metal horns up for Pottsville, PA Crobot is a 4 piece band that draws influence from Clutch, Rage Against The Machine, Wolfmother, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Soundgarden. This band already has my intention with the impressive list of who they draw influence from.

Crobot will be releasing their self titled 4 song EP on May 13th just in time before they get into town for the FMX Big Purple Party. "Legend Of The Space Born Killer" will be available for download but if you are interested in grabbing the track then you can get it at the bands website here.

I am really digging this band and I urge you to come out early and checkout Crobot who will taking the inside stage of the Pavilion at 245pm on May 25th.

Take some time and watch this video of Crobot and get familiar with the band that will set the tone for The Pavilion stage for The FMX Big Purple Party.
