It wasn’t long ago that Rob Crow somewhat pulled away from the music industry publicly stating that it wasÂ due toÂ Â “…the toxic byproducts of the lifestyle of a touring professional musician attempting to survive in an industry of diminishing returns.” You can’t blame the guy for his outcry. I don’t think any musician really could considering the current climate.
Rather than his previousÂ method of performing, recording and mixing his albums solo, Rob Crow has enlisted a newly formed band made up of close friends (Gloomy Place) to support this endeavor. And hey, our good friends at Temporary Residence Ltd. are handling things!
Check out the full details of this project, as well as a single from the album, down below!

You're Doomed. Be Nice. is Rob Crow's first album since his heavily-publicized withdrawal from music â€“ specifically the toxic byproducts of the lifestyle of a touring professional musician attempting to survive in an industry of diminishing returns. Rather than perform, record, and mix every note himself â€“ a trademark of his previous solo endeavors â€“ Crow formed Gloomy Place, a band made up of close friends that includes another member of the beloved Heavy Vegetable. Recorded and mixed by Ben Moore (Hot Snakes), You're Doomed presents a fascinating dichotomy: dynamic, eclectic prog-pop backing alarmingly confessional, often acerbic lyrical themes. This juxtaposition makes for an album of confrontational yet accessible songs filled with wry wit and emotional depth. You're Doomed. Be Nice. is the diamond carved out of a particularly rough chunk of Rob Crow's life â€“ one that's either the first gem of an inspired second act, or the culmination of an undeniably influential career. In either case, the quality of its cut will last a lifetime.
