Crobot have a new music video out for their song “Everyone Dies”, which features an appearance by Steel Panther drummer Stix Zadinia on the piano. The group said of working with Zadinia:
“One of the last tours we did was supporting Steel Panther. We hit it off with all of the guys. Stix even got tattooed by Bishop! We kept in touch and he sent us a bunch of ideas he had for songs.
We really gravitated towards this piano instrumental he had called ‘Jimmy’s Piano Song’. We don’t know Jimmy, but Stix must really love that dude…cause that shit brought tears to our eyes. Through a couple of Zoom sessions, we were able to work everything out and that’s how we wrote ‘Everyone Dies’.
We really wanted to venture somewhere different with this one but still pump it full of our personality. This is our attempt to sit at the dinner table with Queen whilst eating a healthy portion of Meatloaf.”
The video was directed by Wombat Fire (HELLYEAH, Static-X). The song itself appears on the group’s newly released Rat Child EP (Mascot Label Group), which can be picked up here. You can also stream the entire effort below, following the video.
Next month, the group will hit the road in support of the EP on the Rat Child Tour. Dates can be found below. Tickets are available at CrobotBand.com.
