“a gnarly, almost belligerently cool slab of stoner rock, muscled-up pop-punk and ’90s mostly metal...” - Mike Bell (The YYScene)
Hailing from the heart of the new west, Calgary, AB, the emerging garage influenced four-piece utilizes and draws inspiration from all that the rock genre has to offer. Fronted by brothers Dylan (Lead vocals, Guitar) and Steven Evanik (Lead guitar, vocals) there is a certain allure to the sibling’s enthralling live demeanour. Encompassing a youthful and unabashed confidence, their most recent release High Plains has been described by Mike Bell (theYYSCENE) as “a gnarly, almost belligerently cool slab of stoner rock, muscled-up pop-punk and ’90s mostly metal...” with Dylan’s vocals concisely characterized as a “guttural, man sized howl.”
With a dedicated fan-base at home, it is their tumultuous and inclusive live show that is hard to deny, having provided the group with such opportunities as supporting Danko Jones, Grandson, Metz and The Dudes. Currently in studio working on a new material, the group will have a fresh set of new tracks for early 2019 including a single release set for April 12th. It is unclear when the next full length will come to light but in the meantime we can expect to see Crooked Spies throughout western Canada this spring with a planned appearance at this year’s Canadian Music Week.
