Craving Strange / Bio

Who the F' is Craving Strange? A rock and roll band from Amityville, NY mixing the aggressiveness of bands like Guns n Roses with the pop and melodic sense of Foo Fighters? That band with the hilarious Youtube video of their Britney Spears' "Hold it against me” remake? Maybe they’re the band that puts on infectious, energetic live shows; impossible to not get swept up in till you're singing along having the time of your life with four guys who obviously and genuinely are doing exactly what they were born to do. That is Craving Strange.
In just the last two years Craving Strange has released their 2nd full length album "A Life Exceptional", and two singles produced and backed by Grammy Award winning Producer/Engineer Rob Jacobs (the Eagles, U2, Weezer).

They joined Precedent Entertainment, successfully touring the Midwest and Northeast (stealing the show during SXSW in Austin TX) being labeled one of the Top 10 Bands to see live by Red Gorilla Music.

They’ve gained a partnership with Tinderbox Music Promotion and Distribution Company (Imagine Dragons) adding their music to over 100 radio stations across the country, appeared on national television, and have licensed music to everything from the Discovery Channel, Fox Sports, and NASCAR, to MTV, VH1 and Fuse.

Not only are they considered one of their areas premiere local acts, Craving Strange have played and stole packed shows at top tier venues in NYC, LA, Austin, and Chicago opening for artists like Flogging Molly, Steel Panther, Candlebox, and more, as well as performing at major industry festivals SXSW, Red Gorilla, Texas Rock Fest and The Bamboozle Festival where they won over thousands of music lovers who came out to see multi-platinum and influential bands like Foo Fighters, Incubus, and Bon Jovi.

Relentless drive, talent, humor, charisma, dedication, and a willingness to adapt and seize opportunities no matter how outside their “genre” Craving Strange is a band who knows who they are, loves what they do, and makes you want to be a part of it all. We are the Strange indeed....
