If forced to describe Alaskan heavy metal unit 36 Crazyfists in just a single word, you might want to go with persistent. Since forming 18 years ago, the band's released four records through three different labels, lost members to everything from the usual band in-fighting to fatal car crashes, and they've shared the road with the likes of Alice in Chains, Atreyu, Killswitch Engage, Chimaira, Diecast, God Forbid, Walls of Jericho, and Poison the Well. They've steadily made a name for themselves and faced several ups and just as many downs. But this summer, one of Alaska's finest exports will return to the vibrant metal scene it helped forge with 'Collisions and Castaways,' the band's fifth record and first since 2008's 'The Tide and Its Takers' became 36CF's only studio offering to open in Billboard's Top 200 Chart. 'Collisions and Castaways,' the band's forthcoming second set for Ferret Music, was written and recorded between October 2009 and May 2010 and is scheduled for release July 27, 2010. It follows on the heels of last year's DVD outing, 'Underneath a Northern Sky,' and is the band's second straight effort to feature guitarist Steve Holt in the producer's chair and Andy Sneap handling the final mix, 'Collisions and Castaways' sees the band evolving into a three-piece unit following the 2008 departure of bassist Mick Whitney, who left the group to spend more time at home with his wife and children. 36 Crazyfists will be touring for much of the rest of the year and hope to launch their first headlining tour during this upcoming record cycle. Like lots of bands, 36 Crazyfists are a severe-sounding act who've accomplished a lot in a small amount of time but still have a lot of metal fans to win over. And with 'Collisions and Castaways,' 36 Crazyfists will likely silence the naysayers and continue doing what they do: always moving forward, always because of persistence.
