If forced to describe Alaskan heavy metal unit 36 Crazyfists in just a single word, you might want to go with persistent.
Since forming 18 years ago, the band's released four records through three different labels, lost members to everything from the usual band in-fighting to fatal car crashes, and they've shared the road with the likes of Alice in Chains, Atreyu, Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Diecast, God Forbid, Walls of Jericho, and Poison the Well. They've steadily made a name for themselves and faced several ups and just as many downs. But this summer, one of Alaska's finest exports will return to the vibrant metal scene it helped forge with 'Collisions and Castaways,' the band's fifth record and first since 2008's 'The Tide and Its Takers' became 36CF's only studio offering to open in Billboard's Top 200 Chart.
Inspired by legends like Metallica, Deftones, and Only Living Witness, 36 Crazyfists, who helped anchor the inaugural RockStar Mayhem Festival, first formed back in 1994, taking its moniker from the Jackie Chan flick of the same name. Several players came in and out of the fold (including bassist JD Stuart, who was killed in a 1996 crash) before the band's core was solidified well before 36CF inked its first label deal with Roadrunner Records. The band issued two full-lengths through Roadrunner, 2002's 'Bitterness the Star' and 2004's 'A Snow Capped Romance.' The band cultivated a massive following, relentlessly touring the states alongside then-labelmates Killswitch Engage and Five Pointe O. After releasing 'Rest Inside the Flames' in 2006, 36 Crazyfists signed with Ferret for 2008's 'The Tide and Its Takers,' which opened at 155 with close to 5,000 units scanned during the album's first week in stores.
