Southern California’s CROOKED TEETH will re-issue their PASTEL EP on 11th May via Rude Records. To mark the announcement, the band unveil new single CRAWL in the form of a heartfelt music video.
“Crawl is about talking yourself away from a toxic relationship be it platonic or intimate. It’s about healing, learning and moving on from an experience that could have potentially altered your core in a negative sense.
Our producer, Matt Lang, brought this to us in the spring of 2016. We really dug the hook and the lyrical standpoint of the chorus. I wrote the verses based off a similar experience I had. It’s definitely my personal favorite song in our current catalogue”
– Tyson Evans, vocals & guitar
“I naturally discovered Stand Atlantic by way of a Spotify curated playlist based on what I had been listening to. I loved ‘Coffee at Midnight’ and I thought it was dope that the band was a three piece as we are as well. Bonnie
displays a ton of emotion when she sings and that’s something we really wanted to add to this song. I also wanted the song to be sort of a back and forth from the bridge through the end. I thought it would be cool for the story and the lines of resistance towards toxicity to be sung by a woman versus a guy just blabbing on about some heartbreak the whole time. Bonnie killed it and we are so stoked”
– Tyson Evans
Produced by Matt Lang (Waterparks, Selfish Things, The Dangerous Summer) PASTEL cements CROOKED TEETH sound as expressive and emotive, whilst retaining a raw edge.

More about Crooked Teeth:
California trio Crooked Teeth offer a unique blend of eclectic yet gratifying mixture of pop punk, emo, and alternative sounds to engage the listener with thought-provoking lyrics. The band, formed in 2016, is comprised of Tyson Evans, Adam Miranda, and Adam Galindo. Upon forming, the band set out to record Out Here, A Lone. with producer/engineer/mixer Matt Lang with additional percussion by Andy Rodesney and mastering with Mike Kalijian. The EP is a culmination of emotions for front-man Tyson Evans after his previous band, Second To Last, were wrapping up a tour. Tyson and his fellow bandmates, went on to record the EP in 3 days and is a raw emotional take on life, love, stress, doubt, fear, and social instability. With much success, the band went on to open for As It Is at the iconic Chain Reaction, which led to shows with This Wild Life and a performance at Emo Nite LA.
In spring 2017, the band hit the road with Such A Mess before re-entering the studio to record their follow-up EP, Pastel. The three track EP was produced and mixed by Matt Lang with mastering by Kris Crummett at Interlace Audio. Idobi
Radio stated that the EP “will have you so hooked all you’ll wanna do is play these songs for everyone you know.” Tyson Evans expanded on this musical direction by stating that the “EP felt like a formal introduction to the world.” Immediately following the EP launch, the band hit the road for a regional tour with Stickup Kid and Glacier Veins before making another appearance at Emo Nite LA. To celebrate the band went on a headlining tour spanning the entire US with spot dates opening for Welcome Home, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties, Shortly, Anarbor, Sundressed and Chase Huglin.
Fast forward to 2018 and the band has signed with Rude Records to re-release their highly-successful EP, Pastel, due out May 11th, with a new rendition of single, “Crawl” which features guest vocals by Bonnie Fraser of Stand Atlantic. The song is about talking yourself away from a toxic relationship and details the healing, learning, and moving on moments post separation. Fans can be on the lookout for more information on Crooked Teeth soon.
