With origins in the quiet, western-most parts of Massachusetts, Crafter took off in 2014 with one goal: to write as much music and tour with as much energy as possible. Following the footsteps of the early to mid-2000s melodic hardcore/punk bands such as Verse and Modern Life is War, Crafter experimented early on in their sound before cementing their ethics and vision in their debut LP, Embrace. "This record was written for people from the common fabric of all sorts, who deal with the winding roads of whatever “normal” life is," writes vocalist Kyle Taylor. With their lyrical and musical drive targeted at linking passion to common life, blended with aggressive and emotional tendencies that tackle the entwined ethics of the social, political, and personal spheres, Crafter continue to aim to connect with the hardcore community and beyond in the years to come.
