It's time to get sad and stay rad! Crywank are now coming down to Australia

for their debut tour outside Europe.

With a folk-punk influenced style, this duo captures angst and self

loathing with insightful and original lyricism and expresses it with highly

emotive use of sound.

Formed the same day songwriter James Clayton learnt their first chord,

Crywank have developed over the years from being an underground outsider

folk act, to an acoustic punk band with a cult following. Initially a

cathartic solo project, they’re now a two-piece band that lyrically

fluctuate between self-aware and self-parodying whilst having an

overarching focus on sadness and mental health. Percussionist Dan Watson

joined Crywank by their third album ‘Tomorrow is Nearly Yesterday and

Everyday is Stupid’ which has accumulated over five million streams since

it’s ‘name-your-price’ release three years ago and has amassed over 1000

cover songs and remixes.

Based in Manchester, England, Crywank have been booking and promoting DIY

shows and tourmasts for themselves and other bands for several years around

the UK and Europe. Their fifth album is to be released in late 2017.

"The perfect culmination of acoustic, anti-folk-emo, admirable excellence"

- Muteprint

"Masterful cynical lyricism and simple yet soothling instrumentals"

- Blink Clyro

"Emotionally exhuasting expressions are penned in poetic fashion by James

Clayton, who delivers them with apropos gloominess"

- Houston Press
