In 1970, Hunter S. Thompson infamously campaigned to be elected Sheriff of Aspen. He proposed that the snowy locale's name be changed to "Fat City" in order to, "prevent greedheads, land-rapers and other human jackals from capitalizing on the name ‘Aspen'." He lost the election, but a short 46 years later, his proposed moniker would perfectly suit Crobot's second full-length album, Welcome To Fat City (Wind-up Records).

Stirring up down ‘n' dirty rock ‘n' roll, swaggering blues, doom-y metal, and strangely sexy funk into a grimy cauldron, the Pennsylvania quartet – Brandon Yeagley (lead vocals, harmonica), Chris Bishop (guitar, vocals), Jake Figueroa (bass), and Paul Figueroa (drums) – make rock music gonzo again by blasting it to outer space...

"As far as the story goes, I thought it might be cool to write about a planet called Fat City," explains Brandon. "It's a place where all of the sleazeballs of the galaxy can go and be themselves without any regard for morals or anybody else's well-being. On the last record, a lot of the themes were supernatural and took place on earth. This one goes intergalactic."

The first single "Not For Sale" steamrolls with an aggressive energy that T-bones on a big, brash, and bombastic chant. Meanwhile, "Hold On for Dear Life" seesaws amidst a rumbling groove and six-string squeals under a soulful hook. Everything concludes on the stampeding crunch of "Plague of the Mammoths." Hinging on an ominous bass line and swell of feedback, it emits a thundering send-off. Ultimately, Crobot carve out their own corner of the galaxy with Welcome to Fat City. You might never want to leave either...
