With heavy power-pop influences like The Beach Boys, Exploding Hearts and The Sweet, the band has re-crafted the 2 min. pop song for a new generation. The CRY! effortlessly merges 50's style vocal harmonies and the jangle of 60's pop hooks with the raw punkish emotion of the PDX street culture from which they come.
The CRY! motto: “Never Suck” has produced a professionalism, work ethic and sense-of-purpose typically seen in older well-seasoned acts. In a few short months The CRY!’s rare musical chemistry, upbeat energy and hooky songwriting have garnered over 60,000 You tube views, 100,000 song “plays”, and earned the band #1 and top 25on Reverbnation’s local (ALL genre) and national (rock) charts respectively!
The bands debut LP "The CRY!" received rave reviews from Rolling Stone, Maximum Ronk'n'Roll, and dozens of industry sources. Just completed, the bands second LP "CRY! or DIE!" (working title) is due out by the end of 2013 and promises to be a smasher! (discography)
