Who is Crankbox?

Crankbox is a queer indie rock powerhouse that speaks to the experiences of a queer, poor, and angry generation. The seeds for Crankbox were planted when lead vocalist Lily Hillyer and guitarist/engineer Reed Stevens, high school friends, began a 2.5-year weekly songwriting and recording project. After its conclusion in 2014, the two agreed to perform the best of what they’d written live as a full rock band, and recruited the talents of Miles Finlayson (lead guitar), Bob Ben (kit), and Chris Adriaanse (bass guitar).


Their first full-length album, COMPACT COLOSSUS, was released Nov 27 and is available online.
