About Crash The Machine

Sacramento, CA

Crash the Machine, with its new album of guitar driven, melodic and hook-laden songs, goes Hi-Fi with their latest self-titled release

In late 2006 Crash the Machine connected with producer Tomas Costanza who produced the band's second album, which was recorded in North Hollywood, California this past March

"We now have an album that competes on par with major label releases," said Crash the Machine lead singer Jon Murray. "Tomas brought to the band a very disciplined approach to recording that ultimately achieved what we were searching to capture on our second album -- big guitars, amazing drums, bass and vocals, and the energy we generate when playing live. Tomas is one of the top 10 up-and-coming producers in the country, and we were lucky enough to build a solid relationship with him right from the start. We were open to perfecting our songs and musicianship under his direction because we knew that he understood our vision as a band. What we achieved was amazing.

The band is already starting to rip and tear its way into the major league with this album. Be part of the Crash the Machine experience now while they can still personally reply to fan mail


Crash the Machine is a band with roots in 1989 when the Murray Brothers (Craig, Eric and Jon) relocated to Sacramento, California for the specific purpose of creating a band together. A friend of Craig's introduced Brian Crane to the brothers, and the first incarnation of these four was born

The band released a few EPs and played non-stop, receiving excellent reviews from local and regional publications as well as favorable reviews from record industry executives and Billboard Magazine. They were nominated for Best Modern Rock Band at Sacramento's 1st Annual SAMMIE Awards and played with acts such as Agent Orange, the Dynatones, and Cake. The band broke up in the mid-1990's

CUT TO 200

At the request of mutual friends in the Sacramento music scene, the members of Crash the Machine were asked to reunite for a show benefiting area homeless shelters. The band got back together, rehearsed non-stop, and blew the crowd away. The four bandmates sat backstage having a celebration drink and asked themselves, "Why did we ever stop doing this?

In 2005 Crash the Machine built their own recording studio then wrote, recorded, mixed and produced their debut album, 4 a.m., which has received airplay around the world and generated fans in over 35 countries and in every US state. The band also manages their own record/publishing company, Crash the Machine Music
