Biography

Crywank are an anti-folk band who formed in Manchester, England. Originally starting as a solo project by James Clayton, then bringing in Dan Watson on percussion. Crywank started as a project the first night James learned a chord on guitar, and proceeded to write their first album ‘James is going to die soon’ over the following months with their limited experience. The album was released online for free. Despite it’s poor recording quality and technicality the album was well-received beyond expectations and moved Crywank forward as a more serious project.

Crywank write songs that bounce between confessional and tongue in cheek, regularly drifting into the area of self-parody. Although their musicality has improved over the years, Crywank often opt for non-traditional playing styles mostly rooted in simplicity. Crywank have now released four albums, with their latest and first studio album “Don’t Piss On Me, I’m Already Dead” being self released July 20, 2016.
