Crawling With Kings

BandRockAmericana

"Austin's Crawling With Kings engage on an intellectual and spirit-shaking level, spanning the alt-country and indie rock spectrums. 'Regarding Your Request for Closure' sprinkles in vibraphones and trumpets to a mix already shimmering with verbed-out guitars and multiple vocalists."-Lawrence Weekly

Biography

Crawling With Kings released their latest EP, To The Park, in the fall of 2007 following closely on the heels of the critically acclaimed LP 'Regarding Your Request For Closure'. With writer/singer Brian Dyer's recent move to Chicago, the Austin-based band has entered a period of prolific output with a newly record EP set to hit radio this fall.

'Regarding Your Request For Closure' united the band with co-producer/engineer Erik Wofford (My Morning Jacket, The Black Angels, Voxtrot, Okkervil River). Their second release on My Plastic Records, the band continued to elaborate on their roots rock beginnings. Plaintive melodies, exploding guitars, and incandescent vocals add depth and darkness to the album's ten disparate tracks – all recalling hints of Wilco, Bowie, and Death Cab For Cutie.

The roots of Crawling With Kings go back to the early 90s when songwriter Brian Dyer, guitarist Doug Walseth, and bassist Zachary Firnhaber met in in high school. The band's sound has evolved since that time, with musical exploration, and collaboration.
