Crag Mask started as the sonic vision of guitarist/vocalist Zackery Abramo. He conceived the band after departing Boston's burgeoning indie-pop darlings Vundabar and moving back to Connecticut. After rediscovering long forgotten demos he tracked in high school, Abramo drafted an eclectic selection of local DIY veterans to fill out the line-up: guitarist Zayne Couch, bassist Phil Lord, and drummer Jason Rule.
Presented with the demos, the band began to develop Abramo's distinct take on rock and roll. The collaboration culminated in their full-length debut 'Loom' in 2017 (on GAWK records/Super Wimpy Punch). Since then, they have been bestowing their uniquely branded sound to the eastern half of the US on multiple tours.
Their sophomore album 'Bend' was recording in the latter part of 2018 and is due out for release in July of 2019. The album sonically expands on Loom in many ways - their gloomy sound still unfolds into heavy hitting sections that groove and bend, all while maintaining a catchiness that acts as a thread through their non-traditionally structured tunes.
