Anti-Crew is a band that is invited to college events all across the midwest because of their high-energy performances. It's Hip-Hop but performed like rockstars. The live band element with an MC brings Rock and Hip-Hop tracks to life mixing in their high-energy originals with covers.


Chicago-based band Anti-Crew combines genres with a conformity defying sound that wins over fans wherever they go. Lead MC FlareThaRebel, guitarist Pat Attack, bassist Cambo, and drummer Archangel each come from a different musical background, which creates an eclectic style that knows no boundaries.

Their newest release, Foundation: Expansion Plan, is Hip-Hop at the core with a cross-genre sound that encompasses the essence of live instrumentation blended well with original sampling and turntablism. Combined with lyrical versatility, it’s hard not to fall for the slew of catchy grooves and harmonizing hooks that get stuck in your head after the first listen.

In addition to their recorded music, Anti-Crew is known for their highly energetic live show. With rock star charisma, Anti-Crew is among the best when it comes to crowd interaction and capturing an audience for the first time. They are fierce performers that are otherwise the laid back group of guys you grew up hanging out with. “Anti-Crew captures a stage essence incomparable to most, giving the audience something they can walk away from with a lasting impression. – Moda FG (Chicago)”
