Vancouver, BC’s hard rock band, Crnkshft, will release their self-titled EP on March 24th. The EP is the follow-up to their 2015 debut, Hard Fucking Rock. Right now you can enjoy the latest track to be released, “Old Habits,” which is streaming at

Crnkshft gave some insight to the track’s meaning:

‘Old Habits’ is about the daily battle in your own mind between being driven or following the same pattern and expecting different results. Wait for it all to change, but old habits die hard. Unfortunately, it’s about fighting with your own mind and standing up to whatever is mentally keeping you back from achieving your true greatness.

If you dig “Old Habits,” then you also need to check out the EP’s other release “Systematic.” But be warned, if you don’t like Harley-Davidson, half-naked dancing girls, and good old-fashioned rock, this video ain’t for you.

After hearing two tracks, it should be clear that Crnkshft has taken inspiration from ‘90s grunge acts as Godsmack and Alice in Chains, and it’s good to hear some basic balls-to-the wall rock again.

On themselves, the band says:

We’re not a band that’s going to give you stage props and fake blood and shit, we’re going to give you an emotional rollercoaster, it’s not just straight metal or straight rock, it’s a mixer of everything in between, the songs have tonnes of dynamic, and we push for people to get caught up in it.

And on the forthcoming EP:

Our new EP is a beast; we are really excited to showcase our melodic side. The four songs should touch a wide demographic of fans, which is what we want. We aren’t looking to be defined as just a heavy metal band, but as a hard-knocking punch to get anyone going. We’re accepted by all those who listen to metal and rock. The whole idea of Crnkshft’s music is that we’ll be enjoyed by fans across a variety of genres.
