Southern California’s Crooked Teeth, have had quite the year thus far, with the signing to independent record label, Rude Records, and the re-issue of their EP, Pastel.Pastel, which released in May,offered a brand new single, “Crawl,” featuring guest vocals from Stand Atlantics’ lead-vocalist, Bonnie Fraser. Offering a unique blend of eclectic yet gratifying mixture of pop-punk, emo, and alternative sounds, Crooked Teeth are exhilarated to release their follow up EP,Honey, due out November 16th. The EP was Produced by Matt Lang, and takes the listener on a rollercoaster of emotions from the infectiously catchy “Hate Me” track, to the effervescent tune, “Absent,” leading straight into their debut release, “Honey.”
Today, Crooked Teeth are thrilled to bring fans a new single off their release, “Hate Me,” a song that portrays honesty, self-empowerment, and “declaring that hope that the viewer/listener can take something positive from it,” explaining lead vocals, Tyson Evans. The music video was shot in Phoenix with Yellow Box films and was centered around the premise of putting the focus on individuals who are prone to facing adversity in their everyday lives simply for being who they are. Evans continues, “our music is always written from the heart and for the heart. In saying that, I feel it’s important that we also put the spotlights on others and their experiences. We’re very proud of this video, the character and the honesty of the individuals.” Fans can stream the entire music video, here!
Prior to the release of “Hate Me,” Crooked Teeth unveiled their debut launch, “Honey” which peaked at #1 on KROQ’s Locals Only station. An emotionally forward track about not caring about another person and letting the past stay in the past. The song exudes confidence, while toying with one’s inner demon that nothing is ever really over. Lead vocalist, Tyson Evans expands on the building of the track, by stating, “Instrumentally, we mimicked a midi melody on guitar and virtually made the guitar sound like a cool sub bass midi lead. The chilled out bridge interlude was heavily inspired by the Defontes.” The band paired the release of this single with a music video, which can be viewed here.
You and Me (Whatever)
About Crooked Teeth:
California trio Crooked Teeth offer a unique blend of eclectic yet gratifying mixture of pop punk, emo, and alternative sounds to engage the listener with thought-provoking lyrics. The band, formed in 2016,is comprised of Tyson Evans, Adam Miranda, and Adam Galindo. Upon forming, the band set out to record Out Here, A Lone with producer/engineer/mixer Matt Lang with additional percussion by Andy Rodesney and mastering with Mike Kalijian. The EP is a culmination of emotions for front-man Tyson Evans after his previous band, Second To Last, were wrapping up a tour. Tyson and his fellow bandmates, went on to record the EP in 3 days and is a raw emotional take on life, love, stress, doubt, fear, and social instability. With much success, the band went on to open for As It Is at the iconic Chain Reaction, which led to shows with This Wild Life and a performance at Emo Nite LA.
In spring 2017, the band hit the road with Such A Mess before re-entering the studio to record their follow-up EP, Pastel. The three track EP was produced and mixed by Matt Lang with mastering by Kris Crummett at Interlace Audio. Idobi Radio stated that the EP “will have you so hooked all you’ll wanna do is play these songs for everyone you know.” Tyson Evans expanded on this musical direction by stating that the “EP felt like a formal introduction to the world.” Immediately following the EP launch, the band hit the road for a regional tour with Stickup Kick and Glacier Veins before making another appearance at Emo Nite LA. To celebrate the band went on a headlining tour spanning the entire US with spot dates opening for Welcome Home, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties, Shortly, Anarbor, Sundressed and Chase Huglin.
Fast forward to 2018 and the band has signed with Rude Records to re-release their highly-successful EP, Pastel, which released on May 11th, with a new rendition of single, “Crawl” which features guest vocals by Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic. The song is about talking yourself away from a toxic relationship and details the healing, learning, and moving on moments post separation. Continuing the moment, Crooked Teeth have announce their forthcoming EP, Honey featuring lead single, “Honey” due out November 16th.
