Our show last night at Cafe Colonial was a blast! Lucky/You and Conserve put on a great show and were a ton of fun to dance to. It was one of our favorite shows that we've played! Thanks to everyone who came out to the show! If you haven't already, give the bands and the venue a like on their pages so you can attend their next gigs and support a cool venue!
Also, the show we picked up yesterday was cancelled by the venue due to lack of acts to perform so we will not be playing at Cafe Colonial tonight.

We have an all ages show tonight with Conserve, Lucky/You, and Thrashzilla at The Colony - Sacramento! Starts at 8:00pm, and it's $5 at the door! We also have another all ages show that we just picked up tomorrow night at Cafe Colonial with Pound touring from Seattle Washington at 8:00pm for $8 at the door! Show some love by supporting your local music scene Sacramento!

We recently started recording with our new interface and this is the first demo called "Let's Rock 'n' Roll". It's just a rough mix of a song we've been messin' with at home. We haven't recorded any new music since our demo album from Jan. 2017 so we figured why not drop a rough demo now so ya'll can see that we're gettin back to work haha! This link is for our reverbnation profile but the demo is also on our soundcloud if you prefer to listen there.…/29424042-lets-rock-n-roll-de…

Let's Rock 'n' Roll (Demo 4-3-2018) by Criminal Rock, Rock music from Sacramento, CA on ReverbNation

Tonight we'll be rockin' at Cafe Colonial! We've attended shows at the Cafe a few times so it's exciting to finally play the venue and we look forward to sharing the stage with these insane metal bands! 🤘

This should be a fun show tonight at one of our favorite venues, Old Ironsides! We are opening for Furiosa (Jonah Nimoy) and Stinkfist (Tool Tribute band from Chicago). We were offered this gig last week after another band dropped from the bill while we were working on new material, so there will be a few new songs in our set tonight! Thank You to the folks at Old Ironsides for adding us to the show!🤘

We have three shows lined up for this month on the 12th at Old Ironsides with The Machetes and Halcones916, the 22nd at The Silver Orange with The New Crowns and Short Trip, and the 27th at Holy Diver opening for Dio Disciples!
