ABOUT KING CRABAPPLE
Their 2nd album, Castle Keep is available now on iTunes.
King Crabapple has cultured a reputation as one formidable monarch. Wielding fierce lyrics and soaring vocals, this six-headed giant combines funk and hip-hop into something ferocious. Thunderous without sacrificing the groove, they rock the crown cocked to the side, and throw down hard for all the realm.
Muskegon’s King Crabapple couldn’t be more honored to wear the crown of “Best Local Live Performance 2012.” The title, bestowed upon them by the listeners of 97.9 WGRD, came at just the right moment, as the group released their new EP, “Castle Keep,” March 23rd of 2013.
The flagship band for Muskegon-based indie label Mux Rec, they released their debut album, Temple House, in 2010. King Crabapple has played diverse venues like Vans Warped Tour, The Intersection, and Val Du Lakes. They have shared the stage with the likes of Glassjaw, Brother Ali, and more.
The group formed organically from close friendships and a mutual love of music. As their individual sounds converged, the unique amalgam of rock, funk, and hip-hop (as well as something not quite any of those genres) was born.
With years of gigging and a pair of albums under their belt, King Crabapple continues to explore their blended sound, embrace the DIY mentality, and pursue facemelting with full force.
