Maintaining something solidly for over two decades is no walk in the park, especially running and surviving as a band full-time. Alaska’s 36 Crazyfists have had their fare share of ups and downs throughout their thus far 23 year long career, but they’re still showing all of the newcomers how it’s done.
Now seven records deep into their career with the release of ‘Lanterns’ back in September, it goes without saying that 36 Crazyfists are one of the staples and most talented in their scene, though sadly are overlooked a little more than their more carbon-copy and beige contemporaries. But, they’re not here to please the masses, they’re here to please their fans, and the dark, broody, and turmoil instilled ‘Lanterns’ delivered for them in spades.
Whilst at the Manchester date of the UK leg of their European tour, which has kicked started the band’s 2018, we sat down with vocalist Brock Lindow to talk about the new record, how ‘Death Eater’ was originally called ‘Death Stares’, his love for craft beer, their plans for a video for their song ‘Sea And Smoke’, the band’s relationships with labels throughout their career, and more.

The band’s new album, ‘Lanterns’, is out now through Spinefarm Records.
