After 15 years of scouting the mist of a still unexplored way to make music, CRABE, formed by Mertin Hoëk and Gab Lapierre (Après l'Asphalte, BRU) clad itself in a multi-colored mantle made of art-punk, controlled chaos, and sonic surrealism. From their experimentations came a word that sums up their universe with accuracy and simplicity : Crabism.

Crabism is a visit within the inner temple of CRABE, a ride through a storm of ideas that build the strangest, most terrifying and attractive musical beast of Quebec’s musical spectrum.

After the release of Sentients in 2021, the whimsical duo is set to re-map a territory that only CRABE knows how to occupy as it does. Visite du temple inné was released October 13, 2023 via Dure Vie Records.
