    Giants From The Stereo


One day four young gentleman hailing from drastically normal neighborhoods and drastically different musical upbringings formed Crackjaw. After small growing pains and a constant search for common ground Crackjaw has become one of the most recognized bands in Detroit, MI. and are steadily gaining fans in the Midwest, South and East coast.
With influences including Silverchair, The Refused, Rush and Candiria their ability to craft a great song and still wax thrash with subtle hardcore is something that many have tried and very few can pull off.
After doing some professional recording and throwing out their first attempt Crackjaw recorded a two-song demo at Spider Studio’s in Cleveland, OH. in September 2003. After releasing the new tunes that fall, the buzz basically began! Quickly the band returned to Spider Studio’s to record more songs mainly to follow the buzz they had created and to get more material to the hot shots that requested it. Crackjaw has sold thousands of copies of this four-song ep over the last 2 years.
In early March 2005 Crackjaw started pre-production for their highly anticipated new record. By April, the band had written and recorded 20 songs. In April the band chose the best 10 songs and went back into the studio to start recording "Giants from the Stereo" which was they released DIY in October, 2005.
In January 2006 I Scream Records & Crackjaw inked a 2 record deal and the official release of “Giants From The Stereo”. This to give this amazing record worldwide distribution and promotion.
It’s always impossible for a band to tell the reader or consumer what they sound like but lets not try to be to intellectual here Crackjaw stems into catchy rock’ crotch’ & roll hardcore and gets compared to bands like The Used, My Chemical Romance, The Refused and Incubus.
Currently Crackjaw is receiving airplay on college radio stations across the country and is spun weekly on 89X Detroit’s biggest alternative rock station. Along with playing the upwards of 250 live shows in the Midwest, South and East Coast of the country in 2005. Crackjaw has supported artists such as, A Wilhelm Scream (Nitro Records), Chronic Future (Interscope Records), Chimaira (Roadrunner Records), Taproot (Atlantic), The Suicide machine’s (Hollywood Records), Trust Company (Geffen Records), and Adema (Arista Records). Crackjaw was also selected to play the 2005 Warped Tour.
With "Giants from the Stereo" Crackjaw hopes to touch most of the world, punch authority figures, find some interest and work really hard to make this something that people will run to hear.
